Well, I just got back from a week's trip without your brother and sister. I missed them soooo much, and couldn't wait to get back home to them. I'd been looking forward to this trip for a very long time, and now that it's over, I feel like it's time to get into tree making mode. I've got lots of posts scheduled about the trip and all of the goings-on of our family, but for today I felt like it was appropriate to announce the themes for your trees this year.
This year we are making TWO trees in memory of you. For the "Team Carter" tree we decided to enter into the large tree category for the very first time. This means that not only do we have to decorate a larger tree, but we also have a larger area under the tree to work with. It took us a little bit of time to come up with a theme, but I think that we've finally nailed it (even though Daddy came up with this name last year!). Before I give away the theme, I have to say that we got this HUGE box in the mail today that was donated to us by Under Armour. We have been loving the Under Armour stuff because it is something that reminds us of you. Remember, you used to wear your Under Armour headband to hold your hearing aid in place.
I couldn't believe how much stuff was in the box, and feel very humbled by their generosity. Just look at all of this stuff!!!
"Small But Mighty"because, well, you were small but mighty in our eyes. Our theme this year is going to be elves and the North Pole. I can't wait to show you how we're going to incorporate all of this Under Armour stuff into the tree. It's going to be amazing!!
Now, your brother and sister decided to step up to a larger five foot tree. Since we have had so many encounters with birds lately (once again I'm a bad blogger and need to update on this), they have decided to go ahead and do a tree in the theme of birds. The title of their tree will be:
"Don't Worry About A Thing"
They are thinking of doing it in something similar to this:
