This afternoon we decorated our synthetic Christmas tree. Just as we do at Nana's house each year, we tell the story of each ornament, who it belongs to, where it came from. There are some that were hand-made by my mother many moons ago that she laughs about because they were "cost-effective" at the time. But she held onto them and now so do I - a felt Christmas tree and one that looks like I don't know, a spiral broom? There are some that Nana held onto for her son for when he was grown and had children and a tree of his own. "Daddy when he was a little boy". Some are newer ornaments given as gifts to Matt and I or the boys. Some were made by Matthew. We LOVE our Christmas tree.
