Time seems to be slipping through my fingers these day.
Honestly I don't know how to slow it down.
Summer has come and gone along with Halloween, Thanksgiving and now Christmas.
I had good intentions of keeping up with this blog
but it seems I don't have the time or my interest is winding down.
My Mom decided she wanted to have her grandchildren and great grand children decorate this poor little excuse of a tree that decided to sprout out of what was the original tree that grew on this property well over 70 years ago.
It was the tree that us four girls climbed on as children.
After the tree was cut down an all that was left behind was
"The stump" as my Dad would call it.
It was about the only thing left from the original property and house .
So instead of getting rid of it his idea was to turn it upside down exposing the root system and bury it by making it a piece of the landscaping design.
Then right out of the middle of twisted gnarly wood sprouted a twig of a tree.
We would laugh to think it thought it could survive under the conditions that it was coming from.
And yet we gave it a little pizzazz this Christmas
with handmade decorations, and Moms watchful eye from the house.
The children loved it.
Instead of a Christmas home tour showing off my cute little decorations (not) you get to look at my cute grandkids.
Can I say this has been one of my favorites.
And what was even more special was that my Mom was able to come and spend it with us along with my sister Denice who helped to drive her down.
And most of all Dennis (with a little nudging from me) provided the day before Christmas by building a ramp so my mom could gain entrance with out having to risk going up the stairs.
