We decorated our Christmas tree last night ~ I think every year the simple beauty is a delight!
“Standing in front of the crowded benches was a tree. Laura decided it must be a tree. She could see its trunk and branches. But she had never before seen such a tree…Laura was too excited to speak. She squeezed Mary’s hand tighter and tighter, and she looked up at Ma, wanting so much to know what that was. Ma smiled down at her and answered, ‘That is a Christmas tree, girls. Do you think it is pretty?’ They could not answer. They nodded while they kept on looking at that wonderful tree.”

Wishing you Christmas simplicity just like in the “Little House” days!
