This time of the year, our Christmas tree is already up. We usually put up the tree the first weekend after All Saints Day. Every year, we buy a few pieces of tree ornaments to add to our old collection. This year, we haven't had the chance to shop for new ornaments. Also, I decided not to use some of the very old (and dated!) ornaments so our tree is still a bit bare. The photo above is one of my favorites from last year. Hopefully, we'll be able to get good ones this year.
