The third and final photo of my kids for the Monday Pic item is of my son, Elliot. He was aged 8 when we decorated the tree for Christmas. He wanted to place the star on the top as the first step but I told him that that was always the last step, the most important and meaningful decoration of them all. When we had finished the decorations but for the star, Kate, Thomas and I took a break and sat on the couch. Elliot (wearing one of my T shirts) quietly moved a chair to the tree and reached up to place the star. I had my camera with me and grabbed the shot.
I know it’s a bit sentimental and Norman Rockwellish . . .
but hey, if you can’t be sentimental at Christmas, especially when it comes to the innocence of children, when can you?
