These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
The other day I mentioned that I was going to decorate my office as much as I could, since the main office is off limits for the "real reason for the season." I don't have much room, but I used the top of my file cabinet to display as much as possible. The ornaments on the tree are little Nativity figures - I wish I had bought two sets when I found them last year.
Nasser, our young, handsome Muslim originally from Lebanon came in this morning and was a bit overwhelmed. He knows where I stand now, for sure.
The history of this Santa will forever remain a mystery. All I know is that I've had it as long as I can remember. It's not in very good shape any more, but I can't bear to throw it away. I called my mom to learn where it came from and when, but she doesn't remember. I'm guessing it was one of my very first ornaments ever.
Today the doorbell rang, the kiddoes ran to the door, and it was the US Postal Service guy delivering this:
The kids got so excited as we opened the package. I ordered it about a week ago from an ad in the Sunday news magazine. (I'm supposed to get an Elvis Christmas CD as a bonus, but it hasn't arrived yet. I hope they don't forget). The angel is a knock-off Willow Tree, and I can't remember where I got it either. But I thought it fit in okay. The other day when she saw the angel, Care Bear was convinced that we needed to paint eyes, nose, and mouth on her face. They are also concerned that there is no stable. But I am looking forward to adding these things as the years go by.
I won't be able to participate in Morning Glory's "Christmas Tree Treasures" this year, so I did my own a bit early.
