The tree is up. Because of a trip in early December, we were late shopping for a tree, and the one we ended up with shed a lot of needles and looks a little skimpy around the bottom, but it smells wonderful. Besides, it's not the tree but the memories that make the magic.
So I'm going to take a moment to sit and drink a cup of tea ...
and admire the tree.
So many ornaments with so many memories...
|The one my husband's grandmother embroidered when our son was born ...|
|The souvenir ornaments collected on trips ...|
|The ones the kids picked out or made over the years ...|
|And of course, the reason for the celebration.|
Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas with lots of good memories, and a wonderful 2015!
