Will spoke aloud what we all were silently thinking to ourselves this morning after a dramatic collapse of the Christmas tree. EllaRose was beneath, pulling on a favored ornament, when the un-watered, empty-based Old Blue found itself top-heavy and came crashing down.
There were minimal casualties. I was sad about this one. But, since I found all the pieces, I superglued it back together.
Ella Rose did not get crushed, thank God. But, she did not escape unscathed. Poor baby.
Although, really, she didn’t and doesn’t seem too bothered by it. That’s our tough cookie.
And as today is the Feast of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day, the 12th Day of Christmas), Christmas really is over. Hooray! and Wah! It’s always bittersweet to move on from the Holiday Hoopla, but move on we must. Look out 2009!
