The Spanish lady

Between the stocking, advent calendar, and mistletoe, my Mom has given up a lot for Operation: Deck Megan’s Halls. It’s hard to choose my favorite, but I will definitely cherish all the ornaments she gave me. Some are old, some are new, some are silly, some are sentimental – but they all mean something special to me. She even let me have this one:

This gorgeous lady is one of eight or so figures from around the world that hung on a special tree Mom made to celebrate my sister’s return in time for Christmas from her 10-month backpack trip around the world in 2000. All of them soon became staples on our tree, but this one is our absolute favorite. Thanks Mom!!
