The whole family showed up which was awesome. We almost never are all together.
One by one we went up, told our memory to my Grandmother and then lovingly hung our ornament on the tree.
As soon as the last ornament was hung my Grandma said, "So when are we decorating the tree???"
Since then, my Grandma has, MULTIPLE TIMES, all by herself, removed every ornament from the tree and piled them in a corner, disassembled the ENTIRE tree and placed it in pieces in the dining room and moved all of her furniture back to the appropriate places. Because, "Christmas is over!"
The poor people in the basement get to redecorate the same tree four times a week.
Merry Christmas to all! Even the cwaazy ones.
A few shots from the original tree decorating night:
All of the great grandkids.
All of the grandkids and spouses minus my brother and my sister.
All of the kids and spouses minus my Uncle Jim who passed away a few years ago.
The whole gang.
