I put up a tree in the family room this year and decorated it with my doll collection and some of the odds and ends we have collected in our travels. I was pleased with the result. I just hope twenty-month-old Alex will understand the need to look with his eyes and not with his fingers. Most of the dolls were given to my sister and me when we were children by the missionaries we prayed for (making them virtually antiques!). I have collected the rest in my adult travels.
My house is as decorated as it is going to get, although there are still three boxes of things I haven’t brought out and a second tree I haven’t set up in the family room. Next year. Christmas is upon us, and all my plans to bake ahead have gone out the window in the press of other important activities—like promoting a new book and writing another that is long overdue.
