Today we decided to put up the tree. Our tradition is to always put it up on Thanksgiving night, but we didn't do it this year because we weren't sure if we were going to put it up at all. The house has seemed very sad without it so we broke down and pulled it out of the attic tonight. I remember how much Eli loved the lights last year and I think if nothing else, we needed to put it up to remember those good times. It is getting close to a time of bad memories, so we should remember how great this time of year was a year ago...we still had no idea what SMA was at this point.

I'm glad you decided to put up the tree.

I know the holidays this year are nothing like you'd planned, but since Eli WAS here for Christmas last year and you DO have happy memories of that, take advantage of it!

And you might be on the lookout for some fun 'Eli' ornaments now that you have a place to put them :)
