I love Christmas. No matter how much I gripe about being stressed & having too much to do & not enough time, I just love this time of year.
The trees are up; the little gingerbread tree my nephew & his wife gave us a few years ago, with Ashley's needlepointed gingerbread house under it. My needlepoint tree, which is now way too small for all my ornaments. And our big 12 foot tree in the living room, with all the pink ornaments that were purchased by my mother & grandmother the year I was born. My favorite part is unwrapping the ornaments, remembering the vacation we were on when we bought an ornament, or an ornament Ashley made, or one Frank bought for us.
Of course taking it all down is dreadful, but we won't think about that right now!
Hope everyone is getting the spirit!!
