It’s that time of year when you gather with family and friends
Trim the Tree
Remember loved ones….
It’s the combination of all the Little Things…that make it special.
As I get older, I find it’s the little things that make Christmas special. The Memories of Christmases past….the fun with family and friends, giving presents and finding that one ornament I add to my tree decorations every year that stamps the year.
This year is no different….we traveled to SC for our family Christmas party…and as usual, we played games, we laughed…we cried and we sang at the top of our lungs with the sweetest little quartet of angel singers….and the not so sweet out of tune singing of John and Jimmy…it was still the best.
Another one of my favorite traditional activities every year is finding the perfect ornament to mark the year and be forever part of our tree decorating for years to come…this year our 2012 ornament was provided by a family member. Landon Merkley…our sweet little cousin. He hand made this for us and I will forever proudly unwrap it every year and give it a special place on our tree…..Thank you Landon…this brings a little more “Down East” to our home….away from Down Home.
