Just a quick post to share a wonderful idea that our Mother did this year for Christmas (you know Kristine and I had to get our creative side from somewhere!). Since it didn’t work out for all of us siblings to get together this Christmas, our Mother made special trips to visit all of us before the holidays got busy.
She brought some beautiful glass trees that light up with a timer and had each family choose one to keep at their house. Then each evening, at all our individual homes the trees light up all at the same time. That way we can all see our tree and feel connected, knowing that everyone’s tree is glowing at the same time.
My littles have loved watching as our tree turns on each night!
It was such a simple idea, but one that made us all feel closer through out the Christmas season … even though we were many miles apart! Merry Christmas Eve!!
