This metal tree has tags and small ornaments hung on it in my craft room. I put the small gifts from Elizabeth under this tree for future paper craft garnishes. The little wooden figure is standing on a spigot handle; mixing oddities together makes me smile.

Our Dept. 56 suburbs are positioned in every available corner that Mr. Wonderful can capture at Christmastime. The North Pole Village Pet Shop is surrounded by Hallmark Frosty Friends ornaments. We bought our first Frosty Friends ornament in 1980, now 31 years later, it's been around as long as the baby we got from Korea in 1981. We thought the little girl looked like our anticipated baby. Who knew they would keep making it so long!
I made this passport from an advertisement that FIAT sent in the mail. It had a red cover and several pages of ads, I added new paper pages, rub ons of foreign countries and used a time/date stamp to put Dec. 24 and 25 on each page. Santa's picture and NOEL# were on the first page. I punched a hole to hang the Passport on the tree for the grandkids to enjoy.
Baking together, my littlest Peanut was singing Away in a Manger very softly as I rolled and we cut out cookies. I started singing with her and she looked up and said, "Could you hear that?" Yup, that was my heart melting! Magic memories being made here!
