The years I have dragged the box out of the attic on my own and brought it downstairs in sections because it was too heavy to carry alone.
We look forward to opening the box and greeting our old friends. We talk about the memories of where they came from and for some of them, the purpose they have on the tree.
It became tradition somewhere along the way that Cog puts the star on our tree.
I thought it was very funny, she did not.
Some of the Christmas tree putting up togetherness spirit may have died at that point!
This year she was so excited about getting the tree out, she insisted we did it the first weekend in December.
But what I have noticed now, like so many of us getting older, my tree is clearly shrinking.
