Tree's Up

The angel Aunt Shirley made

Everett has put up the tree and decorated it, as he does each year in December.

When he was 10 and we had recently moved out here, he looked forward to unpacking our six-foot artificial tree before Christmas. But we weren't sure where it was, and Scott said he had a tree stored at his brother's and would bring it over. However, when he took it out of the box and put it together, it stood about three feet tall. Everett wept with disappointment, and we redoubled our search for the bigger tree. And found it.


  1. Isn't it funny how satisfying it is when kids recognize a tradition? Even if it's the lack of the familiar.

  2. My kids are the same way. Doesn't matter that they are fully grown.

    That's what I love most about Christmas.
    The Middle Ages

  3. Its beginning to look alot like Christmas.
