Every year it’s the same routine. Sarah comes to me one morning and announces that we’ll spend the next weekend putting up and decorating the tree. I whine and moan about how long that’s going to take, and probably dampen Sarah’s spirits a bit. Then we get busy with something else, and 2 weekends later we put up the tree (Sarah does more of it than I do cause I’m still being stupid about it).
Finally, we turn on the lights in the evening and it’s beautiful :). And I feel bad for whining about it, but especially I feel happy that I have a wonderful wife who keeps driving to make beautiful things happen in our house.
This year, I’m especially thankful to her for that, because she did virtually all of it on her own, while Talia was napping or I was holding her (I did assemble about 1/3 of the tree branches), and I think it’s one of our nicest trees yet. And now I have the photo equipment and know-how to capture some of it, so enjoy some pictures!
