I needed to run out to Mom & Dad's today,
to take care of some "Christmas business"
Little did I know I would be helping decorate the Christmas tree...
Memories came flooding back as I watched Dad unwrap
the same "old" glass ornaments that we used to hang on the tree as children.
Mom, supervises as Dad unwraps tissues from each bulb,
being careful not to break them.
Mom says some of these are over 50 years old
And then there's the star, oh that star.
The very star we put atop our tree all the years while growing up at home.
Amazingly it still works, at first a solids light, then after a few minutes it begins to blink.
If you look close you can see that glitter still clings to the outer edges of the star.
Such pretty little bulb ornaments, It's hard to see the dimension in the photo, if you look close you can see that gold area in the center is indented. The paint has worn off through years of being handled.

Sorry for the blurry photo
Dad still brings home a "real tree", he picked out another beauty this year
Our finished product... That's for the memories Mom & Dad :)
