|Our Christmas Tree.|
You can't see it, but the kids also installed an electric "Christmas train"
around the tree's skirt.
|We walked down to the lot where they had the trees|
and pulled ours home using the kids' old wagon
|The popcorn elephant was my favorite growing up.|
We got him in 1976. I was three.
|Hannah's favorite is Pinky-Pie. We got Pinky when Hannah was three,|
right after she stepped into a mulched pumpkin and ruined a new pair of boots.
|We got this little guy in 1991 or 92. |
The poor bastard has been waiting a long time for graduation.
|Emma declared this one her favorite because it looks|
a little like our dog Faith looked right after we brought
her home. Faith is only two, so this ornament is pretty new.
At nine, Emma's not one for nostalgia just yet.
|Sally's worse than I am about nostalgia. She declared|
this one her favorite because it was labeled 1965.
|Hannah made this one for me in 2004. It's already ten|
years old, and I expect it'll be on the tree for
many years to come.
