Congratulations to everyone here who worked so hard to finish achievements.
My datsdat game on PC (at level 23) did well in the FE. Got all the pumpkins for All Hallows Jack YAY, Then I got the Knight from dice, then I won the MOOSE for double sixes YAY. All in a 2 week time frame. Also getting close to 1 million coins. Also added about 40 diamonds during the FE collect morphing pumpkins.

That’s a wonderful way to remember your loved ones! I have many of my mom’s favorite decorations as well. We put up the tree within a week of thanksgiving, but keep it up until the feast of the three kings (Jan 6).
Woot! Woot! Congrats Dats.....doing the happy dance with you on your achievements. I am having a very hard time getting double sixes. I get maybe 1 every 2-3 months so that Moose is a long way away for me. But I am persistent and will continue until eventually he will be mine!!
See ya in the castle!!
Thank you! Isn't it great to look at the decorations and think of all the good memories? My mom was a "collector" precious moments, barbies, Campbell soup decorations to name a few and quite a few other things. Her tree was a cornucopia of decorations. When she passed we had over 20 boxes of just decorations to go thru, not counting all her other collectibles. Her whole house was full of things she collected. She collected dolls and paperdolls, too. When I would go shopping and was looking for a particular doll the sales person would ask how old the "little" girl it was for was. I would laugh and say 60 all the way up to her 80s. They just looked at me like I was crazy. Then I would explain it was for my momma who collected them.
What nice memories! Going through her collection must have been like a treasure hunt!
It was both sad (because she was gone) and delightful. My Momma had written the name and date of the person who gave her things on each item. We (my 3 siblings and I) would remember stories of when she got something or things she had told us about her collectibles. She was very particular about decorating her tree. She insisted she do it all as each ornament had it's on space on her tree. If you dare to put one on there, she would wait until she thought you weren't looking then put it where she wanted it. (This was after all four of us were grown and living on our own) When we were young, we helped decorate the tree.If I said I wasn't putting up a tree (I live at the end of a dead end street) because no one would see it (you can't drive by my house) she would tell me I decorated the tree for me, not others. And I do love looking at my tree and thinking of momma and my sister. It's funny, if someone helps me decorate the tree I find myself sometimes re-doing the placement of the ornaments and I think, oh, that's what Momma used to do.
Just reading your post.
We don’t have any children. So putting up and decorating The fir tree is a time we have together. Working on something together. We have collected and have been given our decorations/memories from holidays, family and friends.
My beloved puts the ornaments on the tree after I’ve unwrapped them. When I pick one from the box, I unwrap from the tissue paper. Say something, sometimes about who, maybe where and when we got. He then picks it up and looks at it. I can see and hear from the comments about it. We are sharing the same memories. Something so precious, that we have been allowed to share for another time, such a little time.
So thank you for bringing these memories back to us. By you sharing yours.
P.S. he allows me to move some of the ornaments....it just wouldn’t be right, if he didn’t and I didn’t.
Thank you, Tracy
