Where, oh Where?

I seem to have mislaid my ornaments. I am missing at least one, and maybe two, boxes of ornaments. I know exactly what they look like, but they don't seem to be in any of my storage spaces.

The current theory is that Art packed them away inside of a large plastic tub somewhere. That's my theory, of course. Art's is that I put them somewhere "safe" and we will find them someday. Regardless, they are not on the tree. That much I do know.

Mim keeps telling me, "Mommy, our tree isn't really very pretty, is it?" And, well, no it's not, unless you're into the minimalist style of decorating. (Which Art is, actually, so he may have misplaced the ornaments on purpose. Hmmm.)

I bought a few candy canes, and used some big white ribbons from the kids' Christmas pajamas. At least we found the lights.

In an effort to cheer the little ones up, I bought some plaster ornaments from the Wal-mart craft section, and they've been painting this afternoon. At least we'll have a little color on the tree this year.

Update: We found the ornaments tonight! Art was sorting through his tool room and found the missing plastic tub. Yea!!

Well now we'll have to see a picture of the tree with know kind of a before/after shot. The good thing is that you'll have some home painted ones.

I think Christmas trees were meant to be covered in homemade, mismatched ornaments. Mim and Zaya are probably very proud when they see their masterpieces hanging on the tree. Pretty trees with color-schemes are overrated.

mmm-hmm. Sure. Sure, those ornaments were "lost." Sorry, Art. I'm not buying it. You are too much like my own husband!

At least they are found, even if he was hiding them on purpose! And you got an art project in there, too. I don't even have my tree up at all yet. I haven't even started Christmas cards. I DID start shopping, so at least I have that in the works.

Time to string some popcorn, or make a paper chain like they did in Sunday school this past Sunday.

Ah ha! Glad you found them! Although the handmade ornaments will bring lots of memories for future tree decorating.
