My favorite Christmas things…

Standard

angelOur Christmas angel.

This sweet little angel sat atop our tree for a good number of years.  Now she sits on the mantel or some other place of display during the holidays.  She reminds me of our first Christmases together… when we had to tie our tree to the wall with fishing wire because we could only decorate the front half of the tree since our apartment was so small, the tree was so big, and we had so few ornaments.  Or the year we cut a fresh tree and came home from a long weekend to see our tree shrouded in a giant spider web (her wings were folded completely around the front of her body)!!  She reminds me of Christmas Eve and pancakes with good friends… staying up late waiting on Santa… Christmas movies on the sofa pull-out bed… and creating our own family traditions once the girls came along.

Sweet memories…
