thank you seth and antje!
IÂ receivedÂ a tall box the other day… “I think it’s a Christmas tree”, said Ian. Â And when I opened the box I found the most wonderful littleÂ ChristmasÂ spruce. Â It’s a live tree so we will be able to plant it in the spring. Â It came with a string of white lights wrapped around theÂ branchesÂ and a felt skirt with 25 tiny pockets containing ornaments, one for each day of the month until Christmas. Â Shiya isn’t clear on how the whole calendar concept works so instead he joyfully sat on the counter next to the tree, looking for treasures in each of the pockets. Â We aren’t going to have a ‘big tree’ this year as Shiya calls it… I think it would cause me to shed more than a few tears, feel more heart ache than I can handle. Â But this little tree? Â perfect. Â Thanks Seth and Antje!
