The big tree is always the last thing decorated and the last thing put away, so it's only apropos to show it last. I think I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. My old artificial tree had seen better days, so last year after Christmas I purchased a new one. I have many heavy ornaments and I love that this tree has stiff branches making it easier to hang them. However, I have never had a tree with such a perfect shape. I prefer a tree that is rather wonky. This year on my Facebook page, lots of wonky trees kept popping up (I guess big brother is really watching, isn't he?) but I could not justify buying yet another. So . . . this one will have to do for at least a few years.
A couple ornaments my boys made in preschool many years ago. They are now 43 and 41 and pretty soon the ornaments . . . and my boys . . . will be "vintage" 😁 The candy cane grandson Jake and I made in 2012.
