Once Thanksgiving is done, it seems a good time to pull out lights, the tree, and boxes of ornaments. We decided to cook a big pot of spaghetti and have Jason’s mom come over to his house and help us with the tree. It was such a treat to look at every carefully wrapped ornament. Jason has a large collection of ornaments. I have not so many. In fact, during the many moves I have been through since my divorce, I lost a precious box of ornaments.
One of the most fun things we would do each Christmas with our homeschool group was an ornament exchange. Each mom would make a batch of ornaments to represent one of the Five in a Row books we had studied. With a dozen moms in the group, each mom would come home with a variety of ornaments from the exchange. They were so beautiful! Looking at them was a reminder of our books, our outings and fieldtrips, and our friendships. Alas, my collection is gone forever.
As an aside, I am working on an article about what I have been through because of the divorce. Stay tuned. But for now, let’s be present tense and moving forward.
Here, enjoy a few ornaments! I purchased a few of my own this year to add to our collection together. Two of the guitar Christmas tree ornaments are newly purchased by me to add to our collection, but Jason had many guitar ornaments of his own already! I just love them! (The zebra and guitar are two separate ornaments.)
Enjoy this day!
