Monday Memories: The Fortieth!

December 6th, 2009 · 8 Comments

My blogging friend Maya at Springtree Road has the coolest banner image up for December.  It’s a photo of her retro-look white Christmas tree.  I mentioned in her comment section that when I was little, we had a silver aluminum(?) Christmas tree for a few years.  It had no lights on it.  My dad had a rotating lighted color wheel that shone on it.  I wonder if the combo of a metal tree and those old Christmas lights would have been setting yourself up for a totally electrified tree!  Yikes!

Maya said she would love to see a picture of the tree, so I went looking through old photos and found one!

Here is it and here I am, when I was nine months old!  I don’t see the color wheel in the photo, but I do see that my mom got an iron that year for Christmas!  She must have been thrilled.  :)

Me and the metal Christmas Tree!

    This made me laugh. Three years ago, I ASKED for an iron. And I got one. At the time, I was thrilled. Now I wish I would have asked for something more exciting and just bought a new iron for myself.
