Nuestro Arbolito

Feliz Navidad!

It’s that time of year again!
The morning after Thanksgiving, I got out our fancy-pants 3 foot tree and put it up. It was a lot more exciting to decorate this year as now we actually have ornaments.
Over the last 12 months we have been collecting an ornament from each country we visit so now our tree is covered in different mementos from our travels.
Here are some pictures so that I can bore you with all the details:)

A Nicaraguan Mask and a Costan Rican Toucan.

This couple is from an impressive island that Alex and I visited.
They are filled with something and make a rattling noise when you shake them.

The fabric fish is made using the mola technique and we got it on the Kuna Yala Islands in Panama.
The metal fish is from Roatan, the bay island of Honduras. It has joints connecting the pieces of metal so it can move!

These two ladies are Guatemalan worry dolls.
We picked up a bunch of them when we visited this fall so now we have a whole set of them scattered around the tree.
I hope they help Santa keep his worries away!
