our humble little tree

Sunday, December 23, 2007




















I put up our tree this weekend and finished up decorating for Christmas. It is difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas here in Russia. Orthodox Christmas is not until January 7th. The most popular gift giving time is New Year's Eve. Trees are put up for New Years and Ded Moroz makes his appearance that evening.

Our tree is special to us. Tom found it in the market on his way home one evening last year.... he made the silver and burgundy ornaments last year for our 25th wedding anniversary decorations.















The santa is from my dear friend Erin, he is Russian Santa Pooh! And today is a special day in Erin's household... her oldest daughter Rhianna is three years old! Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
