Since we celebrated Thanksgiving a day early. We decided to enjoy the actual Thanksgiving Day setting up our holiday tree.
We bought this artificial tree a couple of years ago when we moved to Hawaii. It's so much easier to set up than our 20 year old tree that we left behind in Chicago. This tree comes in 4 parts. The stand and 3 sections of the tree.
We put the tree together and spread the branches.
The last section barely cleared the top of the slanted ceiling.
We like the fact that the tree does not take up a lot of space.
I loved seeing again, all the ornaments that students had given me through the years. I wrote their names on the ornaments and every time I see it, I see their beautiful smiling faces.
The tree is now ready for KC's presents. We may not be Christian but we love celebrating the excitement, love and cheer of the season.
We thought we were done with Thanksgiving, but a friend stopped by with spinach rolls and jello squares that made the day special.
Then our neighbor stopped by to share their bounty. There were three kinds of kimchee, at least 4 different kinds of dessert and a bag full of avocados. Wow! We are certainly having a thankful Thanksgiving... again!!!
