This afternoon, as we holed up during the ice storm, we decorated the Christmas tree that has been waiting in the cold on our front porch since we hauled it out of the woods on Wednesday.
Some decorations are new, some are old, some... ended up in the trash this year. Seriously, why were we keeping those things?
One of the old ones that I have kept is this little stocking ornament:
It was a gift from my piano teacher when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I love the continuity that hanging it -and a select few other oldies- on the tree each year provides.
Hopefully the bairns will cherish some of the memories we made today as well.
Joyous Advent and a very Merry Christmas, everyone.
