the Christmas tree

the Christmas tree stands ornaments on center and top... grandson now thirteen
I know not correct Haiku.. When my children were coming up, I would let them help decorate the tree. One year all the decorations were on the two bottom tiers.. The same way with my grandsons.. This year I asked Caleb who is thirteen now to come help. When I thought we were finished, I stepped back and looked...Most of the ornaments were in the middle and close to the top..He has really grown..

Been there and done that, was aware the Christmas tree was such a good growth chart.
