The Tree Is Up!!!
We bought a cut tree this year, the first time in many, many years. We've always had a live tree before but we've had bad luck in the past few years with live trees. I think the problem is that the one I get is too big and the root ball isn't large enough to sustain it. So this year we've broken with tradition. Still, we have neither lights nor tinsel, only ornaments. Some are from John's childhood, some from our first Christmas married, others made by the boys when they were children, and the rest are those I've made or bought over the years. As always, I've put the four little glass ornaments from the boys first Christmases at the very top and the star is the one we've always had.
