Over the years we’ve amassed a surprising amount of Christmas tree decorations – most are glittery, of course; and there are color “themes” – pink & purple; blue & green; red, silver, & green; and of course silver and gold. On the lights front, we have white, multi-color, blue, pink, and as of this year, purple. I thought that since in 2011 we went with pink, in 2012 we went with blue and silver, and last year we went with RAINBOW!, that this year would finally be the year we’d have a traditional red & green tree (red, green, and silver ornaments with white lights). Nope – Ryan decided he wanted purple. Purple? Okay, I’m cool with that. Only…the “purple” lights look very much like our pink lights, and the kids added a bunch of pink ornaments to the tree alongside the purple and silver tree, so even with the “purple” lights and the pre-dominantly silver decorations (tree star topper, garland, skirt), the tree still looks pink. Oh well – it’s still gorgeous.
P.S. Last year Ryan’s most wanted gift for Christmas was a magnet. This year it’s a gyroscope, followed by a solar panel. Random, weird, and awesome! :D
