I just got back to my apartment after helping decorate the community room. It was harder than I thought! Maybe next year I'll let some of the younger ones do the decorating. But, it's so important to participate as long as you can. That 'can' is getting more like maybe, not so much, well, I am old so I won't sort of thing.
There were five of us. Not too many, but we maybe could have used a little more help. I had double duty - hanging ornaments and taking pictures. We sang carols as we worked. It was just a fun time.
Here are some of the pictures I took.
Sarah, Evelyn and Michelle trying to get the tree topper to stop leaning!
The topper is on, finally, so we started hanging ornaments.
Sarah, our Life Enrichment Director. She's a sweetheart!

Our stockings all hung by the chimney with care
