Four Trees at Christmas
This is the family tree, the one with heirloom ornaments at the very top followed by - in descending order toward the trunk - those of lesser emotional importance.
Given to us by Missy's parents when they downsized, it first served as the "overflow" tree for extra ornaments.
As our collection has grown, it now has a full complement.
The third tree is in Emma's room. An admirer of her sister's tiny tree, Emma wanted one of her own.
Grace's tree is like Grace herself...full of bling, creativity and freespirited.
Last year, Grace unveiled her tree after covering it with doo-dads found in the deepest recesses of her bedroom. It was shown proudly beneath the light of a Barbie lamp.
Relocated to Jack's bedroom this year, Grace's tree has even inspired the children to find small stockings which they stuck to a nearby wall with Scotch tape.
They've been filling each other's stockings with small trinkets on a daily basis.
Ah, but alas, that's a story for another day...
