When we returned we were back at it and 3.5 hours later it was done. She was determined to have the best Christmas tree ever. However, we'll have to work on ornament 'clumps'. ;). I let her help with most of the less likely to break items with the exception of a pair of mittens that I received in 2007. Some of my favorite ornaments are those stitched by my friends. Lily put up candles from Lucy, hardanger fromShannon, a Santa from Tracy, but I put up my mittens from Cathey.
Needless to say, it was a little emotional. I look at my tree and it blows my mind that someday someone will be reacting similarly to what I've made over the years for my tree (or so I hope!). Even this year Faith Ann posted her tree pics...and there was an ornament I'd made for her, side by side with her own set of mittens. The sentiment was priceless
Until next time,
