O Tannenbaum

Today Cara and I put up our Christmas tree. Although traditionally our extended family puts up Christmas decorations the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, we usually get our tree the following week. (Cara's mother and dad and sister and brother-in-law put up fake trees; I refuse to go along with that tradition.)

It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but the ornaments are musical notes and instruments and gold and black balls, with gold jingle bells mixed in, and there's a gold and black "caterpillar" garland draped on the tree. It's finished off with a ribbon printed with a musical staff an notes. Oh, and it's lit with miniature white lights.
