When my ex-husband left for someone else, instead of having the Christmas holidays seem really really sad and lonely, I decided to give myself a gift. I invited my sister and her kids and a few friends of my children over and we had a TREE DECORATING PARTY

It was complete with soda, candy, chips, shrimp cocktail and Christmas cookies. I had great company, the children had fun, it wasn’t so lonely, and my tree was VERY decorated… well, at least the bottom three feet of it was, kids aren’t tall enough to reach too high!!!

With at least 7 children there, what they had to say was amusing, they were so excited to be all together and GUESS WHAT?  It has now become a family tradition of mine for the last seven years!
