Happy New Year!

amarylisHappy New Year!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday season.  We have had a really nice holiday season this year.  Brandon has been on vacation and we have just been hanging out at home and doing some visiting too.

Everyone had a really nice Christmas.  Just look at what my sister and brother-in-law sent for me!

I just love it!  It looks perfect by our castle.

Now it is on to the new year.  I listed Brandon’s newest masterpiece, the Seahorse figural nutcracker, on Ebay today.

I was happy to have family and friends see it completed.  Everyone loves it, so do I.  It is truly beautiful.

Some Early Christmas Gifts

We have been celebrating Christmas for a while here.  While we were on vacation this year Brandon bought me a couple Christmas gifts that we’ve been enjoying ever since.

First is Cinderella’s Castle decorated for Christmas.  It even has some snow!

We saw this castle in only one gift shop in the Magic Kingdom and knew if we didn’t buy it we’d never see it again.

We also bought a Haunted Mansion……

I know it’s not very Christmas like but we love it!!!!

I have a few Dept. 56 Snow Village buildings but haven’t bought any new ones in a few years.  I am totally thrilled with our Disney purchases!

Did you notice the Seahorse!  It is a nutcracker that Brandon designed and carved.  Isn’t it beautiful!
