It’s a lovely photo Kristin though he’s looking very serious!
Pauleen, he usually looks very serious in his photos. I once made a little album on fb called “Grandfather Smiling” where I shared photos I came across of him smiling . Not too many.
I love the icicles on the tree. I can remember my mother lecturing my brother and me about how icicles should not be “thrown” on the tree, but rather that they should be place on the tree one by one.
I guess that was something mothers taught their kids because everybody says that. I know my mother also was an careful icicle placer. I think I took to it naturally. Can’t remember ever tossing the icicles!
Will have to ask my daughter whether she did that with hers (and what her mother instructed her!)
Come to think about it, I don’t think my daughters have icicles on their trees.
Great photo of your grandfather, and I really love the banner photo at the top of your blog!
P.S. I confess. I was an icicle tosser… 😉
Thank you Cynthia. Gasp! I just finished our tree and I was tempted to become a tosser this year for the first time. The plastic icicles are just so stick-together. grrrr.
