here is a belated post from thanksgiving weekend, 2009…
for several years now we have cut our own trees down, and for the past 3 years we have done so at my grandparents place.one of my favorite parts of the experience is the interaction between my boys and my grandfather – their great-grandfather. they adore Paw, and always insist that he go with us on the Tree Hunt.I am so very, very grateful for these memories. I am so grateful that my children have had the opportunity to know their great-grandparents so well, and that they are old enough to hide these memories in their hearts forever.
This picture perfectly sums up Miles and Meme’s (my momma) relationship.
Playful and spirited till the in.
After some searching, we found this beautiful “charlie brown” fairy tree.
I love the spread of the branches. So airy and whimsical…
