Last Sunday my dad divided all of my mom's old Christmas decorations among us 6 kids. It was hard for me to remember over the phone what was being given. The one thing that I did remember was her Tree Skirt. I remember many nights laying by the Christmas Tree admiring ALL my presents and looking at this homemade Tree Skirt. I would try to count all the candy canes, christmas trees, gingerbread men, snowmen, etc. etc. that was in the pattern. Weird--I know!! But when I heard that it was in the pile, I had to have it. My sister sent it out right away (along with the rest of my loot) and Jane hasn't put it down since. She wears it as a dance skirt. I keep telling her to be real careful because it is special to me. I hope someday it is just as special to her.
