What a great gesture!!!!! No wonder you're thrilled

I'd be stuck on the horns of a dilemma if Bruce did that for me. I'd be tickled pink that he thought of it but then I'd be disappointed I hadn't helped and would find things in the wrong place but couldn't change them because he'd put them there..........

I'm a Monica when it comes to decorating my tree - sorry THE tree!!!!!!

I have had to fix a few things on it after he left for school. He didn't fluff the branches out but it's ok, I was just glad he took to effort to surprise me!

We still have some decorations to add because I always get the grandchildren to help out every year. I have one box of breakable ornaments and another of unbreakable. I let the kids decorate with the unbreakable ones and they put them on however they want then I have to fix it after they leave. I sometimes find 10 ornaments on one branch at the bottom! Ha ha!

Solice I agree, I had tears in my eyes as I read it. You raised a good man. It's always nice when they believe in Christmas (the innocence), then grow up to fast and forget about it, then slowly come back around to the awe and amazement of the holiday! The Joy of giving happiness (especially to a mother or a younger sibling) is priceless! Now that is a Hallmark and scrapbook moment!
