I love CHRISTmas time! I remember as a child being so excited to help my Mama decorate the yard with lights (white only because she didn't like the color ones). I remember looking for a Christmas tree with my Dad along the river banks. One year in particular sticks out because while trying to get a tree, my Dad stuck the saw down the back of his pants. He squatted down behind the tree because he thought he heard someone coming and ripped his brand new Levis! The same tree blew out of the boat on the ride home. We found it in the road, crushed. I cried so hard! We ended up having a tree that was flat on one side up against the wall! I also remember the joy of taking out the ornaments from the old and worn shoeboxes and placing them on the tree. We always used homemade ornaments too, not the fancy ones. I loved that! I have so many great memories getting ready for Christmas! I am trying to do the same for our three sweet boys.
Christmas memories are in the making for the Quinn's. I hope they are for you too.
