Merry Christmas From Up In The Upper Right Hand Corner Of Maine.

The memories of each and every child made ornament on your Christmas tree.

Made with love many years ago. The plaster of paris little hand print. The Rudolph hand crafted that you can just see the tip of the child's tongue showing out of the corner of their mouth. Struggling, determined to make it. In the classroom many years ago. Prior to Christmas break at a small desk spread out with the arts and crafts ingredients. All the kids talking but your's trying to hear the speel up front by the black board.

To listen to the teacher's instructions. Sneaking a peek at the more gifted with her hands artistic little girl in the next row. To study the process. So that is how you do it. Wheels in their head clicking sounds happen as they get it.

The precious decoration assembled from a colored Christmas tree light bulb with pipe cleaner antlers, glued on eyes, red nose.

Or the ribbon hole punch they made to the top of a 2nd, 3rd grade school class picture.

maine lighthouse winter photoGlued to red or green construction paper backing. Cut with the super dull, go ahead and run with these scissor type, safety first cutting devices.

The photos shimmering in the tree lights where missing teeth, freckles are showing in the big ear to ear smile.

Sometimes the best Christmas is a combination of this year's events, participants. But the greatest hits of ones that have already happened weaved in, remembered.

Memories involving loved ones departed but in their prime at an earlier time. To make your Christmas bright. Year after year.

How do you celebrate Christmas in your corner of the world?

Hoping for the merriest of Christmas celebrations at your household or on the road at another's this holiday season.

Share what you are up to and remember from the best ones in your life. And excuse me. Could you please pass that platter of home made sweets? (Reaching) Thank you. Need to sample one of these coconut peanut butter balls, maybe a mocha cake. Thanks Mom. The four boys, all those grandchildren, daughter in laws... We all know you, Dad are watching, celebrating too. Merry Christmas.

We still have the Children hand made ornaments on the Christmas Tree . . . .  and every year they look for them and remembrance about making them.

Good luck and success.

Brenda ... Chime in and when you wore battle green, being away from home, what was it like and how did you make the most of it?

Connie ... You need a Maine moose, lighthouse, etc in your collection from Vacationland on the tree. Make the trip north!

Pamela ... Forgot the stained glass and the image, shadow of the young child's face shilouette to capture the moment. Three meals a day, a little time and whoosh. They are grown up.

Hey Andrew - This being my first tropical Christmas in some time, I had many thoughts and memories of family and friends in New York. I spent a bunch of time on the phone this holiday catching up with them and retelling old stories - it was a great!

Posted by Andre R. Aragon, Real Estate Photographer (Greater Tampa Real Estate Photographer) over 6 years ago

Laura ... Appreciate you stopping in.

Praful ... My brother lived in Boxford near North Andover and know your area!

Jason ... I think of those all alone, forgotten and each of us needs to extend a helping hand.

Jane ... Reminders. Tinsel, sparkle, cooking smells, holiday music and good cheer being spread.

Inna ... Same wish to you.

S & D ... Ease into it and shake it easy.

Collette ... Those are with pictures, baby book, etc what you would want to save if there was a house fire. The most precious.

Michael ... The season opens the heart because we remember being a kid, introduced to the ho ho ho and in the Christmas church pageants. Each kid the baby Jesus, taking a turn.

Andrew,

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas day.   On the day after Christmas, it is kind of sad that celebration is over and now part of old Christmas memories. 

Yet your words make me cherish those hand made Christmas ornaments even more.  Hmmm I need to go find some of the yummy left overs. 

May you continue to enjoy the Christmas season....

Hope you are surviving all that snow up there! Lived in Caribou for 2 years and must say, I do not miss the weather! LOL

Happy Holidays!

Richie ... You too. The spots around the AT buffet of sharing, caring, asking questions and helping. It would not be the same experience missing you, any of the gang. We are all in the trenches together.

Sondra ... I wish I was skiing in your neck of the woods. My youngest son headed out from C Springs to link up with his brother who works at A Basin ski area. It would be nice to swish swish with him, his big brother. Kidless Christmas is not so fun. One daughter in Columbia, another in Boston so spread out happens.

Jill ... Mom and Dad made them special.

Cindy ... You too.

David ... Still a kid, not so innocent and more worldly.

Teresa ... AKA Lisa   ...    Love the weather and skiing can not happen, snow sledding without it.

LOVE Maine.

My best memory of a trip to Maine was right after Sept 11 2001. A trip along the coast when no one was allowed to fly, ( except a few Saudis).

I have also been to Maine about this time of year and it was hard for this California boy to adjust to the cold.

Just the mention of Maine always brings back great memories though, of all the cool small towns, and the unique coast.

Andrew ~ been thinking of you many times in this last week when we hear the NEWS on your weather in Maine. I know how you love Maine. Hope you had a beautiful Christmas.

Posted by Jane Chaulklin-Schott, TeamConnect Luxury Homes - Orlando, Florida, 32836 (TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766) over 6 years ago

Alan...

thanks!

Evelyn ... holiday traditions pasted on.

Brian ... you have to dress right. No reason to be cold! Just plowed out a farm I own and it is a beautiful day! We play in the snow and winter are outdoors like the other three seasons. The ocean dampness can give you a different sense of winter than being on top of a ski slope, out on a snowsled with just dry, white fluffy snow! Did a lighthouse on way home from dropping youngest off at Logan Airport a few Christmas's ago. Video of Portland head light.

Laura ... Thought we were in a Burma Shave roadside advertising campaign for a moment there!

Jane ... They had some power out with ice damage in parts of the state. Not northern Maine.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 6 years ago

Andy, that's a wonderful post. I was thinking about all of my son's ornaments through the years when I took them out of their box and put them on the tree. Hope you had a lovely Christmas day.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 20+ Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 6 years ago

In 1994 when we moved into our home we were without funds for holiday shopping. We made ornaments for everyone and they still hang on all the decorative trees we gave them too. This means far more to me than any store bought ornament. Thanks for the post, and wishing you a happy, healthy prosperous new year Andrew.

This post has to hit home with everyone who reads it....we have all either made or been given one of these ornaments.  These are the ornaments that touch our heart forever!
