So there's not quite the same level of excitement among us now about going to pick out a Christmas tree. It's not like it was when Renee' and I were first married and tree picking meant cruising a country road until we saw the right cedar tree, then jumping out to cut it down before we got caught! Or when we first brought Hallie home and she would run from tree to tree excitedly ( in a lot now, no more tree rustling!) This year was wet, and the tree turned out to lean no matter what we did. There was some frustration but amazingly enough its up, lit, and decorated ( I'm still against the starbucks cup!) And you know all the wonder, joy, and anticipation of the coming birth of the baby Jesus is back! Who knows maybe that's the Christmas Star there in the muddy water!
