The cool, crisp air nipped at our noses, but Bear didn’t care. He was in search for the perfect Christmas tree. For over 20 years, David and I have been cutting our own Christmas tree, usually with a dog enjoying the search with us. This is Bear’s fourth year and his enthusiasm is so entertaining; up and down and in and out of the rows, and round and round the trees. Oh yes, and a stop here and there for, well, you know what.
Dave finally picks one out and asks for Bear’s approval.
Looks like a yes to me!
So sparkly and bright. Now the decorating can begin. Nice Christmas music, a glass of wine, or a cup of hot chocolate. All’s well. And Dad sets up the manger. Yes, this is the manger in the book that has been “passed down from generation to generation.”
Enjoy your holiday decorating and your own traditions!
