Our Pink Saturday theme this week is Deck the Halls.
THE STONE RABBIT has been helping me deck our halls for a long time. He's very fond of our, now vintage, Shiny Brite ornaments that have graced every one of our trees over the many years my husband and I have been married!
This was taken last Christmas when Frankie was helping me deck the halls, too. He loved it when I pulled out the boxes of tree lights and ornaments.
I didn't know that would be our last Christmas with Frankie.
It's been hard not having him over these last few months. I still think I see him coming into the room I'm in some times.
I miss him not being in his box on my sewing table. . .watching me sew.
I miss him not curling up by me when I take a little nap.
And. . . I am really missing him not being with us this Christmas.
He loved the little wooden train that is always beneath one of our trees.
He could sleep almost anywhere. . .even in a tiny gift box.
The fact is. . . he was truly a gift.
And so is little Twiggy. . . who also misses Frankie so much. . .
but she continues the tradition of giving me help with decking our halls because Frankie taught her well.
