Ornaments and a tree!

This is our ornament for 2007. We made this cute little Rudolph out of circles of wood and twigs (for the antlers) from tree pruning that Andy had done the summer before. The nose and snout were made out of modeling clay. I burned a sheet full of them because Andy had left them in the oven too cool, and I pre-heated the oven the next day not knowing they were still in there! I had set the sheet out on a snowbank to cool, and every once in a while I still find a charred snout outside!


We didn't make these, but I wanted to post them. We buy the boys a new ornament every year. This is this year's ornament- O, Holy Night! One of my favorite carols by the way!

Here is the whole tree!


HMMM...wonder what this year's ornament will be? Check back next Monday for the reveal!

I love your comment about finding a snout from last year. That is too funny. That's a great memory!

Pretty tree - I kinda wish ours was real - yours is real, right? It looks like it. Does it smell so good?

I can't wait for the reveal. Waiting, waiting, waiting.....

I, too, laughed at the "finding chared snouts" every now and again. Funny stuff and great memories!

I like your tree. I wish we could have a real one -- but I have a pine allergy.

I love the smell of a real tree. Yours looks great! Too funny about the homemade ornaments. Sounds like something I would do.
