Last Saturday JoAnn and I got busy and decorated the Christmas Tree. The insurance man had put it up right after Thanksgiving, and since the pretty white lights looked nice we had not been in too big a rush to do this job...but waited for a nice relaxed afternoon together. It's always so much fun to get out the ornaments from past years and remember them like old friends, each filled with memories.
JoAnn is holding up the egg she made for me in second grade, with her school picture included. I always cherish this one, and am grateful the egg has remained intact.

Here is the completed tree. It looks just like a Christmas postcard, with the snow out the window.

Afterwards we sat down by the fire with a glass of eggnog, and enjoyed the fruit of our labors.

Nice. :) I'm sad to miss it. It was so very special that I got to do it with you a couple of years ago. It's nice to see some pictures of JoAnn and of "home."
Love you,
Julie

Great post Jennie. It is a special time to do the tree together. Remember it always.

Love the pictures and the eggnog toast.
Merry Christmas,
