I got these Elves that we named Xander and Anya and they just didn’t look right.
They look sad and not at all like they are in the Spirit of the Season. So I fixed them…
Last year our tree decided it had enough of Christmas and so the day after Christmas it fell down and refused to get back up. I bought this tree 7 years ago so to think my $25 investment lasted as long as it did was nothing short of a miracle.
This led to our dilemma for this year. Do we get a new tree? I said yes but I didn’t think we should spend a lot because we hoped to move next year and perhaps would be able to get a big tree next year. So it was back to the $25 Trees only they went up in price. The trees are now $36. Can you believe it!?!
I present our version of the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
Sad right? Well sometimes all a tree really does need is a little love.
Okay a little love and lots of extra lights and garland ;) I present our $36 Tree in all of its glory! Merry ‘Charlie Brown’ Christmas!!!
Because Thanksgiving was later this year the Christmas shopping season is shorter for me. I’ve tried to do a little shopping throughout the year but lets face it I’m not built with the ability of multitasking, lol.
I am able for some reason to find places to take my picture for the Christmas season…
You can never have too many pictures of yourself with reindeer, lol. I love Elves and it’s this time of year that no one questions how many Elves I have as an adult person…who
plays with collects dolls…action figures
This is Thad…he’s helping me at work this week. Usually he just lays around the house eating Oreo Cookies when I’m not home. At least that is what I envision he’s doing
Elves are awesome because they have pointed ears. What can I say…I have a thing for pointy ears. I’m hoping Santa brings me more Elves to join the parade. Hint I’ve been a very good girl this year…well mostly.
My MIL out did herself this Thanksgiving Dinner! Everything was beautiful and delicious.
How could it be Thanksgiving without Football…
It was a cold day in town so we watched the Parade on TV…
Our Turkey Day was perfect!
We capped off the awesome weekend with going to see “Catching Fire”. It was really good and if you read the books you’ll love it for sure!
It was a busy long weekend but it was a good weekend filled with Family and fun!
