It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well, I think so, anyway!
This past weekend I began decking my halls. It's such fun to pull out the ornaments, trees, decorations. They are old friends who have been away for a long while. Now they are back where they belong!
This is the first ornament on the tree. It is the only ornament from my Mom's family tree. I don't know how old it is, but it's old -- held together with wire in parts. And I cherish it.
I have few photos of my parents' holidays when they were children. None of my dad, I think. This one is mom, two of her sisters and her little brother. He didn't see many Christmases. I like to think that somewhere on that fuzzy tree is this special beaded ornament.
I'm looking forward to sharing the holidays with you! Let the festivities begin!
