"It's the most wonderful time of the year"

We pulled out our Christmas decor on Sunday and I love how it fills our little home. 
Twinkle lights, green and red, and memories from past adventures and moments in our lives.
I was impressed that I still remembered where I had packed them all away almost 2 years ago and said goodbye.
There is still one box with La Befana from Italy and a few other European ornaments that I need to find by Saturday for an International Holiday presentation Tys and I are doing. Wish me luck, because I know I've gone through almost all the boxes once already!
Let the Christmas music play!

 Some of our international Christmas collection. 
Our Due Torri ornament from Bologna, Italy
A little manger scene that Tys and I searched for together on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy.
A traditional European Santa with his long red coat that I bought with my sister in Rothenburg, Germany from the Kaethe Wohlfahrt Christmas store.
Not pictured
A Nativity from  my Study Abroad in 2009 from Assisi, Italy
A European angel ornament- I love their unique faces
Le Befana"kind old witch" from Bologna, Italy


Truth be told, when I pulled out our stockings, the third one still said "mason" on it. We had to laugh that it seems like so long ago we made it for "him" when I was 7 months pregnant. We were happy to make a few changes on it for Taryn.
