So, I don't know why...probably just because my mom says so, but it's supposedly a Lutheran tradition to put an Angel on top of your tree. Anyway, it's this Lutheran's tradition...and now her Catholic husbands tradition, hehe!
My butterfly ornaments from none other than, The Dollar Tree...one of my favorite places!
Here she is in all her glory. She's already tipped once and we vowed not to put her up again, but here she is, still a little tippy I might add!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care and little Angelo's was new this year!
One of my favorite ornaments, my parisian snowman.
These are our Charley Brown trees, or "Junk" trees as my husband calls them. They hold all of our old favorite ornaments.
My goofy little caroler collection. Aren't they cute!?
Angelo's first finger puppet nativity scene. Aunt Barb gave it to him last night. It's adorable!! She made the whole family act out a part with the puppets.
This is our family nativity scence. We received it as a wedding gift...which is a great gift idea...at least I thought so. But somewhere I lost the shepheard and a donkey. Hopefully they'll find their way by Christmas Eve!
Anyway, that's it. It was too cold to take a photo of our lights outside, so you'll just have to imagine how glorious they are!
