Christmas Tree 2012

This year on the Christmas tree, we have a number of new ornaments.  If we keep this up, we're going to need a second, smaller tree to house them all!

Our first religious ornament. We picked this up at the Kathe Wolfahrt store in Rothenburg.

Our Rothenburg ornament along with the date.

I thought this rocking "horse" teddy was cute, so I grabbed him.

My new Maleficent ornament :)

My new Evil Queen ornament :)

Our Disneyland 2012 ornament.

Our stockings

Gimli's stocking.  It has 2 jingle bells on it and I cannot touch it without him running up and trying to see what's inside.

Lastly, our tree.  There's no angel at the top because our old one has fallen apart.  We haven't been able to find a suitable replacement.  Hopefully next year.

We've also put up garland and lights on the banister and around the windows downstairs.  It seems each year, we do a bit more.

I was also crafty enough to create a custom wreath!  Not to shabby huh?

I saw it on Pinterest and used the instructions found here: Ribbon Wreath Craft. A word of advice, if you're going to make this, be sure to purchase your ribbon from your local craft store by mid-November.  I had to go back to Michael's at the beginning of December to find a ribbon for the hanger portion and all the samples I had used were gone.

Next year, I want to do some doggie footprint ornaments.
