I heart Christmas
I put up my in-laws' Christmas tree, I guess none of them like to do it. It reminded me of all the happy times I've had with my family putting ours up and decorating it together. Yeah, we never made popcorn and strung it up, but it was pretty homespun nonetheless. I'm pretty sure our tree topped is STILL the paper plate angel my brother or I made in kindergarten, complete with pipe cleaner halo. And most of the ornaments on the tree are handmade by us or by friends, or at least have a story behind them. It will never grace the cover of Martha Stewart (school project ornaments rarely follow a consistent color scheme), but it's a happy catalog of years of Christmases together, strung up alongside each other, hodgepodge and cozy.
