But back to decorating! The first thing we, did (and the most important) was our tree. My parents started the tradition of giving my brother and I a glass Christopher Radko ornament every year since we were small. Some are fun with Santas and snowmen, but most are representative of an event from that year. For example, when I studied abroad in South Africa I got a zebra ornament!
Jay's family ornaments are still at his parent's house, but he provided the tree and the beads, as well as some big shiny filler ornaments. I like to put those inside the tree near the stump to give it more dimension.
