In 1990 my husband befriended a squirrel who greeted him every evening after work. This little squirrel is commemorated here in this Christmas Tree stump carving. His name is Napoleon.

How nice that a Christmas tree has a life after Christmas. And in such a wonderful way. Your husband’s carvings are stunning. They have a very clear artistic expression. The squirrel does look very cute.
Just passed your kind words onto my husband. He sends his humble thanks.
… And the stories attached to them make it all the more sweeter. They will be heirlooms someday. Thank you for sharing these family memories of yours.
Melissa, thank you for your thoughtful comments and thanks for visiting.
SO cute. Who carved it?
My husband. Each year he carves the stump of our Christmas tree into a creature that was meaningful to us during the year.
Very cute. I love the nut he’s holding – nice touch!
How wonderful! Do you carve as well?
Thanks, No.. I have to save my fingers;)
