The tree has been packed away until next December. There are new ornaments added each year for the grandchildren, and our granddaughter (5) especially talked about them this year. She pointed out that she didn't have a gingerbread man on the tree and her mother, aunts, and brother did! We'll see what appears next year.:-)
We enjoyed reading several annual family letters, as well as seeing pictures that show how much the children have grown! The two cards on the top are actually water colors by the senders!
As I cut off the front of the card to use for tags on our gifts next year (do you do this?), I remember the connection we have to the people from whom we received a card this year.
All because of the birth of "one small child."
Tomorrow - "Ready for the New Year!"
