The above tree was my late MIL's. It started as a large tree and she cut it off numerous times through the years after she didn't want to bother with a large tree. The ornaments were all made by Ida. They belong to my DD, who cherishes these. Last year, (our first Christmas without Ida, Tracie couldn't find the ornaments and we almost had a crisis. We located them and the tree holds special meaning to us as it graces the corner by our entertainment center.
Last year for Christmas my daughter, Tracie, gave me a beautiful Seiko clock that plays music every half hour. It even has a mode for Christmas music. I didn't get to enjoy the holiday songs last year, but I am so enjoying them this year.
Jesus, the reason for the season!
