Part of my Christmas has changed since Mike passed away, but at the same time a bit of it has remained the same.

Before Mike passed, the first ornaments on the Tree were the two paper mache ornaments we bought together in 1989. There was the wizard for Mike and the enchantress for me. Now, the first ornaments are the two memorial ornaments, then the wizard & enchantress.

Mike started the collection of the Santa’s - we added to it every year. I have continued that tradition, adding a Santa every year. The Santa collection is getting so large that it may need to find a special display space.
