This is one of Mom's ornaments that she bought on a trip to the Oregon coast and found a year around Christmas store. We always talked about going back there
I get up every morning and turn on the tree and all the lights in the house. I just love it. It is so cheerful and happy. I can be having the worst day ever and be around beautiful Christmas things and it just lifts my spirits.
So, with as picky as I am with my tree and the decorations ... I was looking the other morning at the tree turning (it spins slowly 360 degrees) and I thought I noticed something that "didn't fit in", but the tree turned and I lost it. Then I saw it again and removed it and asked Bill what it was and why was it on the tree? He said it was a tag off of a watch he ordered and he gave it to Layla. She thought it would be pretty on my tree. So I walked over and put it back on the tree. She was SO proud and happy when she came over the next time to see it still there. I must be getting soft in my old age. Brittney would have never gotten away with that.
