HiHoney and I married two days after Christmas in 1965, so our First Tree was a Touchable Poor College Students Apartment Tree the next year in 1966. Funny thing was, after it was decorated neither one of us 'Touched' it or the Red Birds that were our first ornaments. Four of the Six Red Birds have survived the years of Touchable/UnTouchable Trees and this year are perched on the top branches.
I always thought of those trees as the 'Touchable Trees'. Afterall, when the tree toppled over on top of the toddler, the only tears shed were those of the toddler.
Through the years of our Toddler Son and first three Toddler Grandkids the Red Birds survived and the Touchable Ornaments adorned the bottom half of the tree with a few Un-Touchables on the top half.
During the NonToddler years a collection of UnTouchable Tree Ornaments joined the Red Birds.
The Touchable Tree Ornaments were gifted to the Our First Toddler Son and DIL
for their years of Toddler Touchable Trees.
Today, I'm happy to say
The Toddler Touchable Tree
Is Here to Stay!
