Every Christmas as a child, we'd pull up to my grandparents' house, and there in the yard, the gum drop tree had bloomed. Gum drop trees bloom once a year on Christmas day.
This year was my nephew's first Christmas. He experienced his first Santa visit, first crazy and over the top gift opening extravaganza with my insane (yet loving) family and his first gum drop tree. Like me and my brother as kids, he doesn't yet know to question if gum drops can really grow on trees, he just wanted to eat some gum drops.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas!
