believe it or not, it has come to that time of year. the time of year when i still get excited about christmas morning so excited i could throw up, but i haven’t in years. the time of year the tree is up, there is snow on the ground and all i want to do is be surrounded by the people i love.
three years ago was kevin and i s first christmas. we put up a tree he had in the basement of his friends house, a tree that he had bought a few years before but since the purchase did not feel the christmas spirit. we put up all the ornaments he had and i added some silver bells and a crystal snowflake.
two years ago, put up the same tree that miraculaosly returned to the original box and made the move. we had new ornaments and a 11 year old with us. we made a point to make this christmas a huge one to remember.
this year the tree is up again, all of our ornaments are on the branches, we have changed the bulbs and completely made it our own. our tree has gone from just something kevin had to something that brings all three of us together to celebrate our little family. no matter how rough things get, how tight times may be or how irritated we get with each other, we have figured out how to make this work. i wouldn’t want it any other way.
that will be nicks permanant position for the remainder of christmas break…
of course he may have to compete with hobbes for the blanket…
