Trimming the tree, part one

Part two is here.

Erin sits on the floor beside an old familiar box. She is untangling decorations and handing them to impatient hands.

I stand next to the tree helping the kids hang their delicate treasures.

Alice is hanging every ornament from one branch. I move them when she's not looking.

Henry is beside himself. He is trying to find a way to suspend Lego figures from the tree.

Jane hangs a craft she made two years ago. She stands back to take it all in.

"Christmas reminds me of my whole life."
