Merry Christmas…in July

We decided to celebrate Christmas in July this year.

We went to Byers Choice and the National Christmas Center.

Byers Choice had lots of places to take photos beyond the exhibits.  This was a dress up area with costumes and a Christmas background to take pictures in your dress up 🙂

It was so hot that Byers Choice had the local fire department come out with the hose to cool the kiddies down.

It was such a fun time.  I got to see so many of my favorite beings (elves) and relive a little bit of my childhood 🙂



A Slight Alteration

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…

Ah…much better!

In Keeping with Season!

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.
