I got back from visiting B.J. and Jenn and their new little son, Jack just in time to decorate the LDS Visitor’s Center in Independence. I have been helping do this for more than 15 years. We always do it, a week before Thanksgiving. We, Susan Allred and I, decorate the large tree on the main level and then decorate the “Pioneer” Christmas tree downstairs in the historical section. It is something I enjoy doing and it makes me feel a part of the church history in this area. My ancestors were kicked out of Jackson Co., Missouri, and then a few years later out of Missouri altogether in the 1830’s and now I am decorating the Christmas tree at the Visitor’s Center on the temple lot in Jackson County, Missouri.
