Tree trimmed ... checked

Posted by
Larry Lefever (Lititz, United States) on 24 December 2010 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Trimmed with ornaments from the past 42 years. There are beavers, mice with scarfs, elephants, frogs, cows, cats, a handful of balls and lots of rabbits. Decorating our tree is quite the event.

Many thanks for visiting and though I may not always reply to your comments, know that they are greatly appreciated.

Please stop by and see more of my work at:

I managed it myself today. I am following your directive, even though I am still lagging in the cookies department. For shame. You have a very beautiful tree. I believe in keeping the tradition of the same ornaments every year. They signify so many memories. Merry Christmas!

@Bettina: It always surprises me how much sentiment is attached to these little gifts. One year we missed a little bear when we threw the tree out. Luckily we spotted it before nature reclaimed the tree and he has a special place in the front every year. Onward with the baking, Bettina ... Cookiesauras awaits!
