Well, for the first time in memory we may actually have a white Christmas. It snowed for 24 hours here yesterday and we ended up with about 20 inches of snow. For December that's a record and it looks like its going to stick around for the week! What fun! Family and snow for Christmas!
My daughter and I spent the afternoon decorating the tree, listening to Christmas carols on the CD player and taking breaks to marvel at all the snow! I love decorating the tree because all the ornaments have memories. I used to make most of the ornaments for our tree. I rarely make ornaments now, but I'm seriously thinking of trying to make at least one ornament a year once again. I enjoy opening the boxes and seeing them, and remembering where we were or what was happening in our lives when I was making a particular ornament. Many friends have given us ornaments over the years, and that brings those special people to mind. Some of those dear friends are not with us anymore and seeing their gift brings them into our lives and our home at this special time of year once again.
