I put the tree up early this year, on the first of December. I did it by myself, while remembering the chaotic days of children hanging ornaments and eating cookies and cheerfully arguing about who picked what branch for their ornament and who ate the most cookies and how many more days until Santa?????
When I finished I found my camera and took some pictures for the grown children who won’t be home this year. I thought I’d share some of them with you.
I’d never thought of taking pictures of ornaments before, but it’s nice to see them. Maybe years from now someone in the family will wonder why on earth Grandma owned three Scottish soldier ornaments and several pairs of faded felt ice skates made with paper clips.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
