|Here we are, headed home with our load of trees!|
I bet your wondering about that Charlie Brown tree aren't you? All the branches were cut off and carefully stapled/nailed onto a plywood base. The bases were the size of our coffee table and the dining room buffet and another one was attached to the living room wall over the fire place. Once they were in place the decorating began. Remember those candles? The pink, blue and green ones with all that glitter?? Ya, those. They were carefully arraigned on the table and buffet, the shinny Christmas tree balls were added and finally the icing on the cake .... canned snow! Ah yes, he would spray the snow carefully all over the entire piece. That's why he needed so much glitter! So it would show through the snow storm.
Don't get me wrong, at night when the candles were all a glow and the tree lights were on there was nothing prettier in a 7 year old girls eyes.
Now all we need are some holiday treats ....
