Sadly, we had to break with tradition this year because the tallest family member forgot to place the angel atop the tree when he was home. The tree was installed, the angel ready for placement----and we totally forgot! Luckily, we had the next tallest family member on the bench, suited up and ready to play!!

Holiday traditions.

It's been a weekend of holiday traditions---appropriate for the first weekend of December. First---I brought out my favorite ornament. My Mom's Snow Lady. I wish I knew more about this little gal! She looks waxy and is fragile. I know my Mom bought her during WW2 and she used to spray her with flocking from a can every year. I haven't touched up her snow in years and think she still is pretty. And then Friday nite we went to the Toledo Zoo's Lights Before Christmas. It was packed!!! And packed attendance meant a traffic nightmare but a nice, family crowd. And a chance to see the prettiest tree in Toledo--covered in blue lights!
