Friday we went to the tree farm at the end of our road and got our own, very special, Cylas-hand-picked Christmas tree. If I could have bottled up all of Cy’s energy and excitement, I’m sure it would have propelled a small car.
Both kids shot out of the car and immediately started the search for the perfect tree. The owner was delighted to have us scampering through the fields she said, “Every kid should experience this.” And I totally agree, there is nothing like seeking out the perfect tree for *your* home.
We went in circles. I was getting annoyed. Cy was looking for the tallest “perfect” tree and we had to remind him that our ceilings wouldn’t fit the “tallest” tree. From one side of the farm to the other….there were over 25,000 trees there. We did not even see a tenth.
A robin’s nest, long vacated, but the evidence of the lives once birthed there still in place.
All of my lights and decorations were passed on to me from my precious, late step-mother, Bea. I don’t have any decorations of my own. So for now, our tree is that of nostalgia.
After, we made luminaries…I love those.
And if you were to come to our house, would see the tree has ornaments from its mid-section down. This tree is our kid’s tree, it’s not esthetically pleasing to the eye, but pleasing to the heart.
