For the third or fourth year in a row (getting old is heck on the memory, people) I went over to fTM Karen's house to help decorate their Christmas tree.
This year, though, there was a new twist.
As we were finishing hanging the last ornaments, Karen pulled out some plain clear and frosted glass balls along with paint and glitter pens
She figured that i might want something of mine on the tree.
...sniffle... isn't that the sweetest thing you ever heard?
After dinner i got to work on the Niki ornament and asked if anyone else was going to make one, so Karen and her MIL Nancy joined in the painting fun.
As we found spots for them on the tree Karen said I think we should do this every year.
I heartily agree.
