Our Tree is Up! Pee-Wee Herman and Fun With Jesus

It's about midnight and we just finished vacuuming and finishing up the tree. This year, we looked around for something good to watch on TV while we were decorating, but alas! there was nothing Holiday-ish on.

So, I gleefully put on Pee-Wee's Christmas Special. Have you seen it? Sean first said he had no interest in seeing it at all, but then as the ornaments came out and the Pee-Wee humor kicked in, I found him standing there staring at the TV. So funny :)

Another funny thing, after the ornaments were all on the tree, I noticed this lovely grouping. That's right, Jesus, C-3PO and R2-D2 are all happily hanging out together right near the top. I hope this isn't sacrilegious. Actually, I'm not even sure if you should have Jesus on the tree, but the little ornament is Jesus on the San Damiano cross, and it is the cross that Saint Francis had a conversion experience in front of. So, it's a loving reminder of a pretty amazing saint.

Is your tree up? Do you have any favorite ornaments?

Our tree is up! I always put ours up Thanksgiving night after all has calmed down. I don't really have a favorite ornament. I like them all!
