Our First Christmas

Here are some photos of our Christmas tree, complete with a heart tree-topper made by my 3-year-old niece, Emma.

My friend Katy went to Norway a few months ago and sent John and me this heart ornament she made in an old iron works mill in Oslo.

My parents sent us this photo ornament. As you can probably tell, it doesn’t have a photo of us in it yet…just some random strangers. I’ll work on getting a photo of us for next year’s tree. Oh, and the ornament is also a music box. It plays Pachelbel’s Canon.

We bought this “Wilkommen” ornament at the Schwetzingen Christmas market.

And thank you all for all these gifts. We are really excited for Christmas morning!

    Cute tree. In Germany do they have tree lots or do you get to chop the sucker down yourself?

    Thanks for the compliments on our tree!

    Steph — We could have chopped one down ourselves, but we just got one at a tree lot. The Boy Scouts were selling them on post. :o)

    Cat — Aw, you didn’t have to send anything! But we’ll be really excited to get it!

    […] and did some shopping at the PX. We also put up our very first Christmas tree as a family. We had one in 2007, but we weren’t a family yet, so we don’t really count that. The tree has lights on it […]
