Warm Memories

Last year's Christmas greeting
The 1st of December and we're having our first ice storm. Brrr...
The goal for today is to take down all remaining fall adornments and put up the happy Santas, snowmen, and the TREE. Quite an undertaking indeed.
It makes me think of last year, the first year that Brenna really got into it. She helped put it up and didn't try to tear it down. Mason was only 7 months old, so still harmless. This year, I fear his destruction. There will have to be constant supervision in the room where we put up the tree. He is that child. The one who would end up trying to climb it, only to have the whole thing come crashing down on him. I love him dearly, but he is truly that child.
And we don't want the poor boy to have such Christmas trauma!
I'll let you know later how it all goes. And maybe share a pic.
For now, I'm going nostalgic.
Remembering this time last year.

Sweet pictures!
We only decorate the bottom half of the tree. It just saves us all the sweeping up of broken ornaments.
