how do you like our Christmas card tree?
the picture i’ve posted is from Christmas 2002 . . .
the card/light tree is our holiday tradition . . . we started it in Arizona . . . during a Christmas spent so far away from family and friends . . . it was Leo’s idea to tape the cards we received inside a string of lights, shaped like a Christmas tree . . .
voila! our tradition was born . . .
of course the tree isn’t complete until after Christmas, when all the cards we receive are in it . . . but it is a great way to remember family and friends, pray for them, reminisce with a story or two . . . the tree is SO SPECIAL to me and something i look forward to working on . . .
because of the weather and "stuff to do" at home, i haven’t been to the post office in 3 days!!!! to get there, i have to drive 2 miles on gravel roads, 1 mile on a slippery highway, then over a narrow bridge spanning fast moving water and finally - another 4 miles through cottage country . . . then and only then, can i put my key into our post office box and anxiously peak in to see if anyone has remembered me . . . anxiety . . . :o) . . . and no wonder the Christmas cards are special - they are work to get!!!
must dash, just wanted to share our card tree with you . . .
