Our German Elf!
Okay, so she's not German and she's not exactly and elf, but this beautiful package came in the mail today. Special delivery from Germany. This is a replacement for a broken ornament of Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. D and I did a quick tour back on his R&R in 2006 and we bought a beautiful ornament when we were there. Fast forward to Christmas 2007 when a tank ornament (yes, we have one that's a tank) got dropped and CRUSHED the Neuschwanstein ball that we had. The ornament wasn't even broken, it was destroyed - shards of glass were left and that's it.
Well, this year, D got in touch with my dear friend Anna who just PCS'd to Germany. I challenge anybody to find someone who loves Christmas more than this woman (Christmas music year round - seriously - July). She was the perfect person to find us a replacement and she did! Such a beautiful ornament and I can't wait to get it on the tree! Thank you very much Ms. Anna!!!!
