We decided to remodel our holiday decor this year. The box in our attic held a collection of a whole lot of odds and ends --- ornaments from primary, ornaments from kindergarten, ornaments from friends. They're all beautiful, but it was time for a fresh start. We went shopping together, knowing it would be a tricky group decision. There were dozens of display trees and aisles and aisles of ornaments and lights. We all had different ideas and it was a chore to find something we could agree on. We finally found this bolt of funky pink ribbon and added boxes of bright ornaments. How do you know how many ornaments you need to purchase to properly fill a tree? I felt like our baskets were full and certainly the price we paid at the register was adequate. We explained our dilemma to the couple at the cash register - could we return items or exchange things if we had purchased too much? Apparently, they were the store owners. They looked at our baskets with a smirk and assured us we would need much, much more. (They were right.)
We ended up with a Dr. Seuss looking tree and we are loving it.
