December 9: A golden cedar tree for Cghristmas. by Mie

We bought a young plant of golden cedar and planted it in my garden several years ago. The tree has grown-up quickly like this size. Since last year, we decorate it with many Christmas ornaments. This time we put lightning bulbs, glittering garlands, and color reflecting balls. We climbed up a trimming ladder carefully to work on the tree.

Here, we finished like this. We put a large golden star on the top, can you see it? We lit it in the evening. When it gets darker, the light will shine more brilliantly.

We also decorated in-house. The big wreath was made in Chicago some 20 years ago. It has been the centerpiece of the Christmas decoration. Under the wreath is a commemorative picture of our son's wedding ceremony. A pair of small candles and a hand-made fabric Christmas tree miniature on the right. A fancy red bag is a gift to our son and his new wife.
My mother presented me a cute clockwork mini-Santa Clause many years ago. What present will he bring for me this time?
