i finally got some christmas stuff up. here are 'the boys' in their new favorite spot. we moved the papasan chair out of the living room to put in the christmas tree, so now it is down in my work room...it seems very comfy for them!






my sister made me this wreath for my birthday last year...a shopping girl, pink ornaments and feathers, and the dress form... and it was wrapped in cinderella paper! it's pretty...i have in my work room so i can look at it.





this is my stocking that i had from when i was a small child. i always liked it, i don't remember if my mom made it from a kit, but i would guess that she did.









this is my little mariachi santa, he has a guitar, sarape, sombrero, and maracas, and a little bunch of chiles tucked in his belt with a little silver buckle! and he has a musical thing that you wind up, and it plays "cielito lindo".








i also have quite a collection of fireman things, including christmas ornaments...this one has a photo of my dad, (so handsome!) who was a fireman. someday i will post something with all my fireman stuff. i seem to be accumulating quite a bit of it.


and last but not least, (again something from my sister) cinderelly on top of the christmas tree!

i went out with my mom to get her tree and we saw a santa that goes with mariachi santa...but he had a violin instead of maracas! but he was 60 bucks too! i spent a fraction of that on mariachi santa!

My dog loves the bottom of the tree too! I don't think we'll be having one this year though... barely enough room to move around as is. I like the Cinderella on top!
