We had such a fun time the other night helping Sister decorate her Christmas tree. Three generations coming together to celebrate such a wonderful season. I had to make myself slow down and take a step back. I noticed I'd had the tree up and started putting ribbon on it before anyone else had gotten there. I get a little excited and on a roll when it comes to decorating. They made it in time though and Mama helped wrapping the ribbon around the tree.
It was a lot of fun. We had Christmas music playing in the background, pine tree scented candle burning and decorations spread out everywhere. It was so peaceful. We used a combination of mine and Grandmother's ornaments. The fun thing about Grandma's ornaments are that each one has a story, or she made some of them. Mom and Grandma would go to craft shows, buy a prototype of something they liked then have Grandpa make it for them to put the finishing paint and decorating touches on. I come from a family of crafters.
The finishing touch on the tree. Sister putting on the last ornament.
I could eat it all day...or until my teeth were so covered in the candy that I couldn't open my mouth any more to chew.
What are some of your favorite Christmas memories?
