Last year I received a very interesting gift and it spurred the start of a new Christmas tradition around here:
Yup, that's a bat in a "hat" on the top of our tree.
It's a very cool bat puppet that my sweet sister got me last Christmas. (By artist Susan Cain of Hornby Island.) The hat is actually a sock I knit for one of my girls when they were little. It makes a good stand-in for a Santa hat.
So what's on the top of your tree this year?
PS This is the beauty that the bat replaced.
What do you think? Did we make the right decision?
(Apologies for the poor quality of the photos. I have a new camera and am too impatient to read the instructions.)
