I must have been about 5 years old the year I decorated my very first tree...well, okay. It was just a branch, but it was just my size and I loved choosing ornaments and candy canes to hang!
My mother wrote this note to my older sister to go along with the photos...
This is the branch Vickie found over on the side of our lot. It took her an hour and a half to decorate it! First she put it in the corner of the living room but ended up on her table in the dining room, as you can see. She was much more thrilled about her branch than she was about our big tree...you can probably tell this from the expression on her face. She put her jack-in-the-box and some of her coloring books under it. Can't wait to share this picture with her when she's all grown up!
Isn't it amazing how a simple photo can bring back a memory so clearly? I remember the excitement of that day like it was yesterday. What are some of your fondest Christmas memories?
