When the time came to take down our Christmas decorations, my beloved Grace didn't handle it well. She moped about saying it was so sad that all the "twinky" lights were gone. I must admit, I had to agree. I always hate taking down the Xmas stuff...
I headed into her room to remove the small tree we had placed next to her chair. She ran in front of me and held her hands out protectively.
"NO! You can't take down MY Christmas tree!!!" she protested.
I began to argue with her but then reconsidered. Why must we take down this pretty little tree? Why not just make it into our "holiday" tree? I knelt down and told her my idea. She was thrilled. She got to keep her tree and we got to make decorations for Valentines day!
The crafts began immediately. Such fun.
More Valentine trees to love...
