I love getting out Mom's Hummel creche.
Grandma's bell ornaments (they really ring!) hang on garlands in my dining room.
I love this candle globe that was a gift from my mother-in-law.
We also have some decorations from places we've visited:
Living History Farms
Frank Lloyd Wright museum. (yes, that's a bubble light next to it--like the ones on Grandma's tree)
Unfortunately, the star at the top of our tree broke last year in a tree-tipping incident. Eli told us he'd make a new topper for us. I think it'll become one of my future favorite decorations.
Can you tell he's reading Tolkein right now? We laughed and laughed at this--Christmas in Mordor!
