Christmas is absolutely , my most favorite time of year and I'm happy to say we started celebrating immediately on Thanksgiving day by putting up and decorating the tree. Last year, we had just moved in to our house and it was hard to decorate surrounded by boxes.
We have some new additions this year!
Here is an ornament that I treated myself to this week. His name is Fred and he flew over from Snowbears workshop. Adorable. I hope she continues to make these , I'd love to build a collection.
And another sparkly treasure is my new drummer boy who arrived yesterday as a gift from an equally treasured friend. Isn't he cute?
While my mum has been visiting, she has been teaching my Emily to sew.
Mum cut the pieces and Em did all the sewing. I just love it, look at the bunny. Too cute! Well done, sweet girl.
Emily's snowman sits with the ornament she made when she was 5 (she's 10 now). Yep, it still goes on the tree every year.
The same year this paper ornament was made, she would draw pictures, wrap them, put them under the tree labeled, "To: Emily From: Emily". Christmas morning she'd rip it open yelling, "Oh I wonder what it could be!"
There has been a lot of baking and crafting for the tree, compliments of Emily again..
and paper snowflakes, very pretty...
Oh I do love my Christmas tree.
