O Tannenbaum

Today your uncle and his girlfriend decorated the tree.

Dad put up his train too.

Now the house is starting to feel more Christmassy.

It made me think of what your first Christmas would be like. I made me think of how I hope to bake Christmas cookies with you and make Gingerbread decorations.

As they were putting up the decorations, I realized that every decoration has a special story and meaning. Most pertain to the growing relationship of your dad and I.

I can't wait to expand that to items as our relationship grows.

Most likely, I'll need to pack away certain decorations until you are older because they are delicate but that's ok. We'll have more room for our growing memories.
