December 1: The Tree Is UP!

Our one and only accomplishment today: we dug the tree out and put it up! The kids were excited & had been waiting a few days to do so. I love going through the ornaments each year & talking about all the memories that are attached to some of them. Just like a picture, many of them have their own stories to tell, stories of joy, milestones, miracles, & love.

It's weird & hard being sick around the holidays--it just throws everything off. Schedules, plans, traditions, expectations... But we did get it done before reality strikes again tomorrow.
