Christmas Tree

Well, we finally finished decorating our Christmas tree. We’ve had the tree for almost 2 weeks now, and it only had lights and a few candy canes on it (which are disappearing a fairly quick rate). But now it’s covered with ornaments that our moms collected for us over the years. We each have a “baby’s first Christmas” ornament on the tree….only difference is Jake’s says 1985 and mine says 1983. That makes me sound old. 

But it was pretty cool to see all of my old Christmas ornaments. A disturbing find, however, was an ornament that Jake made. It was a “plane” made out of cardboard with some puff paint on it. If I had to guess, I would have said he was probably 5 or 6 when he made it. However, the date on the ornament reads 1997. That’s right. He was 12.

So, it’s December 17, and this time last year we were living in Portland, where it never snows. And of course, since we moved, they’re having a blizzard.

And it was about 70 degrees today here in Athens. Not supposed to cool down until next week. I wore shorts to work today. It’s a very strange feeling.
