A new day

It wasn't so cold today. I wanted to work outside but we brought all the Christmas stuff out of the shed and installed the big tree and the little bear tree. The big tree has a tree topper now. The little bear tree is decorated and the little bears have gathered around. Not as many fit by the tree this year because we have a Thomas Tank train circling around it. We didn't want one of them falling on the track and getting ran over. I will take pictures as soon as the big tree has more decorations. We can't do that before Dec. lst. It's not according to tradition. We even push the envelope a little by starting so early. When the boys were small we didn't do any decorating before the last Sunday before Christmas. They will remind me of it when they get the chance. My oldest son is the traditionalist in the family. My younger son and his wife live near her parents so their traditions are more like she had at her home, which is as it should be. The son who lives here doesn't celebrate Christmas. He has another religion. But, he comes to help us celebrate. He still believes in some traditions. He's a good son.
