This tree came with us across the country last year. Over a bunch of slick, frozen roads in late December. All the lights still work, in spite of the jostling it got. Last year, we didn't put it up. We arrived here in our new home on Christmas Eve. Boxes stacked everywhere. No room--or time--to spend decorating for the season.
But this year, we're on it. Merry Christmas. And as Tiny Tim would say, God Bless us, every one!
