He was so excited that he came in to mine and my sister's room, flipped on the light and said “Paula, Madeleine look what I got!” then dropped everything on the floor making such a noise that it woke our mother up. Scooping up his spoils he quickly hightailed it back to his room leaving us to suffer the wrath of mother even though we were half asleep and had also be woken up! Oh the joy of little brothers!

christmas tree
by: mildred/tn

Many years ago I got tired of putting up the tree, getting the decorations from upstairs, decorating the tree and then reversing after Christmas was over. So I stopped!!

Now when Christmas is over (since my tree sits on an unused table in the living room out of the way) I just throw a sheet over the decorated tree until next year.

That way my tree stays decorated an ready for show....I love these retirement years..
