We spent the afternoon putting up the Christmas tree. Walter LOVES it and spent lots of time examining the the whole thing. I mean, there's a tree inside the house! And it has all sorts of cool things hanging from it. Santas and angels and birds and even a giraffe! I admit I'm about as excited as Walter is. I like getting all the ornaments out. They each have a story. Most of my favorites are the ones that Walter overlooks.
This one is from our trip to London in 2005 – inspired by Jean Tijou's decorative ironwork in St. Paul's Cathedral.
