Every year I say I will not buy more ornaments, and every year I do.
I think the tree has reached its load limit.
It took me a long time to get all of the ornaments on today, and I had such fun unwrapping each one and remembering when they were purchased or given or made and why they are significant. So many memories are represented here and so many events are celebrated.
We may not have gifts under this tree this year. With Jill and the kids in their home finally, Christmas morning will be at their house, as it should be. But I'll enjoy our tree each day of the holiday season, Josy will sleep under it, and the Winnie-the-Pooh characters my mother-in-law made for our kids when they were little will keep the space filled with love.
