Well, we got the tree up. And even though it's not the way I would prefer to decorate it, to me it is perfect, because the kids love it with all the different colors and special memories. Joel is fascinated. He even talks to the ornaments--things like, "I'll be right back." The ornament pictured above was one of my favorites when I was a little girl.
I give the boys an ornament each year. This year's theme was 10,000 Villages, and they received elephants. I don't know how impressed they were, but I think someday they will hold special memories for them. Maybe they will take pictures of their elephants and put them on their own blogs someday. Although by the time they are grown I'm sure a blog will sound as old-fashioned as "typewriter" sounds to us.
