Fern Ridge Col­lec­tions

Just Cross Stitch - - Recipes & Memories - Pat Cherry

When the grand­kids were lit­tle we would let them have their own “Char­lie Brown” Christ­mas tree to dec­o­rate. My hus­band had a hunt­ing camp (ac­tu­ally more like an an­i­mal ob­ser­va­tion camp), and we would take the kids out in the four-wheel­ers to se­lect and cut down a tree of their choice. Then we would bring it back and let them dec­o­rate it. The dec­o­ra­tions usu­ally con­sisted of cutouts that they had col­ored from a color­ing book, pop­corn strings and cran­berry strings that we all helped to string. Af­ter the Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion, we would take the tree out­side and share it with the birds. I still have some of those cutouts packed away for their chil­dren.
