Ruth,
Did you eat all the candy off the tree?

This is Ruthie's Christmas tree? Or is it a pre-tree in a hall decked as it must be with boughs of holly? Maybe I just have wildly romantic expectations for the winter traditions of a big snow state like Colorado in that I expect everyone's Christmas tree to be at least sixty feet tall, the branches bending under the weight of a recent powder dump. And that's how I imagined the tree you and Ruth decorated--that stringing the lights would require a crane; that real children would be hung by their jackets as ornaments; that owls would live in the branches and raise their young.

But it is a dear, petite tree almost as pretty as Ruth herself.

Merry Christmas, Sanders everywhere!

No, no Rebecca the tree IS 60 feet tall. It's just that Ruth is still growing.
