She would decorate the inside of her house in October so she could enjoy it for a much longer time period. One of her most prized decorations was her Christmas village. Every year she would add one or two pieces to her collection.
Hubs had always loved her Christmas village and so as the years went by and she got older, little by little his grandmother would give him pieces from her collection until he had them all. Early on in our marriage I would put them out all over our house because the collection was much to large to put in one spot. Over time I would eventually scale back and only end up putting out about half of the village. And eventually when we started having children I stopped putting out the village all together.
Last year R2 discovered the large storage crate that held Pam-Maw's entire collection and he wanted to put it out.
So this year again, R2 has decided this is now his responsibility every year to put out Hubs' grandmother's Christmas village.
This isn't even half of her collection. I think Pam-Maw would be proud.
