"Ours is Prettier"

The true, sage words of a four-year old when comparing grandma's tree to the one at his house: "Our's is prettier."

Wow--sometimes when someone gives you an entirely honest assessment without any hint of malice--it is funny!

Ethan was visiting for the day, while the family was preparing to gather later at his house to celebrate more birthdays. He was doing his usual exploration of the grandparents house to determine what had changed and what was the same--when he cam upon the Christmas Tree.

Of course your tree is prettier--it had better be because your Mom and Dad put it together and you helped!

But it was funny, and true, and oh so honest an assessment.

We wouldn't have had it any other way!

And it made us smile at yet one of those long forgotten, but nice to know realities of life as seen through the eyes of a four-year old: "Life at our house is better than anywhere else! And don't you forget it. "

Merry Christmas.
