(I was going to put this up later, but I just need to finish up and pack and get going.)
We didn't get a tree this year, because we are not going to be here for the holidays.
Crafty Girl, however, made this little tree from a file folder and a pile of pompons.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
I'll see you after January 1. After we've celebrated the first Christmas with my family since 1993, after I've given everybody over there a big squeeze, after we've attended Christmas Eve service in a 14th century church, and after we've celebrated my father's 70th birthday on December 30th, 2007.
