As far back as I can remember Christmas music would be playing while Dad and I bring the Christmas tree and decorations down from the attic. We assemble the tree, lay out all the ornaments, and then put them all on the tree. Mama is decorating the rest of the house until it is time to put up our Mother/Daughter ornaments. We started collecting these Hallmark ornaments about 5 or 6 years ago. Some we laugh about because they are an exact replica of how are relationship is and the others are just well…plain tacky. But none the less I got a phone call around the first week of December saying our yearly ornament came in the mail. She wanted it to be a surprise so she told me not to look on their website to see what it was of. And yes all of you who are saying I bet she looked…guess what I didn’t. Truth be told I forgot about it which is a good thing because I am the girl who will try and figure out surprises early. Mama finally had to stop putting gift tags on our Christmas presents because I would unwrap them to see what I got and wrap them back up. But when we went to Georgia a few weekends ago Mama surprised me with our new ornament. How perfect for us!
