Home For Christmas

We started decorating the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, but only finished decorating both trees last night. This is the first time since my parents split up that my mom has gone all out for Christmas, for that was the day our entire lives changed. Things may be different, for instance our antique tractor we used to have on the lawn strung with rotating lights on the tires, and santa waving to the passerbys had to be sold, but new traditions have been started, such as the vintage Christmas tree in the front window.
