.....obviously NOT on Sunday, but I didn't want to miss the last one of the year; so rather belatedly, here I am with my 'precious' for December. For the uninitiated of you who may just have dropped by my blog, Storytelling Sunday is the brainchild of SIAN over at FROM HIGH IN THE SKY. This year she has encouraged our little band of storytellers to think about the things which are precious to us, and to tell the stories behind them.
Being December, that can only mean one thing in this house....CHRISTMAS!!...so my last 'precious' for this year is 'topper' we have for our main Christmas tree. Many people have angels, or even stars but since 1985 we have had this little fellow:
He was given to us (well to Stuart really) by Craig's great aunt Margaret, who bought him at her Church Christmas Bazaar.....and he is made from an empty tin can and some cotton wool! Although Stuart was only three months old at the time, he was mesmerised by the Christmas Tree and the snowman which we put on top of it (really because we didn't know what else to do with it!)....and it just became one of our family traditions to top the tree with the snowman.We would now never think of replacing him ...he has watched over us for all those Christmases and I like to think that when he goes on the tree, a little part of Stuart is here as part of our celebrations too.
If you would like to read more stories (which I'm guessing this month may have a Festive feel to them!) why not pop over HERE.
I would just like to thank SIAN for organising us yet again.....I'm sure I'm not the only one who now has stories I hadn't even thought about AS stories, told.
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
