I took a few pics in different lighting just for fun. And I also took some pics of some of our Christmas decorating before it got swapped out.
Quite a bit of this display came from my penpal in Germany. We've been writing since we were about 13. The glass bottle is full of water from Lourdes. Pretty cool, huh? Hedwig has decided to become a permanent fixture, as she enjoys the spotlight. She'll keep her heart necklace (a glass Christmas tree ornament on a ribbon, LOL) until after Valentine's day. :)
And what would Christmas be without the Doctor and some monsters? A hungry dino (with bowtie!) and a ram-headed warrior help to keep the season
Fahim the Socially Awkward Penguin is. . . well, he's a long story, most of which originates with one of the kids' friends. He claims to be Jewish in spite of his name. He enjoys dressing up, and usually finds himself in socially awkward positions. In this case, he has crashed a Christmas party bearing a trained assassin.
