We found a lovely 6-1/2 foot fresh-cut balsam locally, at Tractor Supply. We brought it home and set it up in the living room over the weekend. Just $20.00, and with no brown branches.

We finally decorated it today -- little white lights and all -- and she stands there in all her glory!

We always get a bit teary when we carefully hang up the special ornaments we MADE from scratch for our first Christmas, almost 60 years ago, when we were as poor as church mice! Most are still intact.

We also get a kick out of hanging up the homemade ornaments our kids (now grown, with families of their own) made for us over the years -- like the little sled carefully made with glue and popsicle sticks, given to me by our son when he was just eight.

With smiles and glistening eyes...

Merry Christmas to all.
