This is the first year J & I have ever had a tree. I must say it suites us quite well. However, we didn't have a proper tree topper. I was using a makeshift star ornament that was fine but, I wasn't in love if ya know what I mean... Well, Laila just happened to come home from MOPS on Tuesday with the PERFECT topper for us this year. (Que proud mama: "It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!" with tears welling up in my eyes...)
Now the tree is perfect.
I've enjoyed having other "Kiss-a-me" (L's "Christmas") reminders around the house too:
(Special ornament bought in Bruge, Belguim... sigh...)
I'm pretty sure all our neighbors think we're Jewish but, one can never have too many winter Scandinavian window candles...
