How Angelic

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me, Zim.  Did you notice the tree up on the cabinet by the kitchen doorway in yesterday's post?

That's another one of our trees - it has tiny angels ornaments on it (mostly from Germany) and a few olive wood carved ornaments from Bethlehem!

How about we take a closer look! The larger ornaments are down near the bottom of the tree -- right ...

...here, like this olive wood Nativity ornament:

Just as an aside, does anyone think it's odd that we have several small trees set up around the house, up on tables and stuff, instead of a big one on the floor? Crazy!

Here's one of the angels:

And here's an angel in a one horse open sleigh!

Here's a tiny angel in a heart; Mom always hangs this right near the top of the tree:

And at the very tip-top of the tree is another carved olive wood ornament:

A Nativity star ornament! Isn't it beautiful?!?  A family friend sent that to Mom and Dad when she went on a trip to the Holy Land; it's very special to her in many ways!
4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5 in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. 6 While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. 7And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.  (Luke 2:4-7)
I hope you enjoyed seeing our tree of angels!   Have a wonderful Christmas Eve, everyone!

Play bows,
Zim

  5. We love your little angel tree, Zim! Your family has a lot of special ornaments. You know, our mom was almost going to put our little tree up on something high but she changed her mind - said if it was on the floor it wouldn't have so far to fall. hmmm... whatever!
    Have a wonderful Christmas Eve day and Merry Christmas!

  11. Very pretty! For some reason, Mom has a little tree that she puts up on a table, too.... Hmmm... I wonder what that's all about! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
