We got our trees up this weekend!
Miss Grace, with her favorite Christmas ornament. It’s always a special moment when we find her in the box. We named her Charlotte this year (Grace might have guessed, I chose the name with Laura Ingalls’ beloved rag doll in mind, those who have read the books know what I’m talking about)……
Here is a group photo of the gang, in front of their own tree. We put it upstairs for them and let them hang whatever ornaments they have collected or made through the years. I’m amazed by the strand of lights~ I’ve had them since I was a teenager….(my NY family might remember “Jamesway” which has been out of business for years, I bought them there and they are still working!)
Rich likes a neat and orderly Christmas tree and because he so rarely has an opinion about such things, I am more than happy to do things his way……he chose the colors, too….silver and blue with white lights. I did ask for a big fat tree this year, and we love this one. It’s a Douglas Fir and we bought it from the local fire department.
The tree is always magical in the dark. I took this picture early this morning as I made Rich’s coffee and toast.
Can you believe it’s already December 15th?
I hope you all have a blessed day,
full of the warmth of God’s love.
