I know. I missed last Tuesday. I missed posting any days last week.
I had a bajillion things to do and something had to give.
More on that later.
Christmas isn't really my holiday (It's Halloween), but looking at my house you'd probably never know it.
I mean, we are not like Santas all over the inside and outside people.
But, I do have sleigh bells on my door and decorations scattered around.
So, I though I'd share some of my Christmas stuff with you.
This is how we do Christmas in my house.
The worst part is moving furniture to have a spot for the tree.
A hundred years ago, there was a lot less that went into a living room.
Chairs were smaller.
So, without further ado(or is it adieu?) here is Ten Things Tuesday- Great Christmas stuff.
1. Christmas Movies
Everyone has their favorites. Mine is A Christmas Story.
3. Homemade ornaments.
5. Christmas cookies
Every year my sister and I try to get together with our girls to make cookies. Sadly, one niece couldn't make it this year. She works retail. But, it's a fun tradition. It would be neat if my other sister lived closer so she could come.
6. A new ornament every year.
I love lights on my tree. I have two different sizes. I have the minis and the bigger ones. I don't do blinking lights- they annoy me.
8. Handmade ornaments/decorations
I have some ceramic Santas I bought from someone online. They are awesome. This year's handmade ornaments were bought off Etsy from Scrapin Sara's Gifts. She mentioned how to make them on her blog, but as I am not crafty I got a couple from her and they look great.
As, you can see- great job and two different sizes of lights.
I love penguins. I have penguin ornaments as well as decorations. Sadly, my dueling banjo penguins refuse to duel anymore. One plays, the other one just sits there like the dud that he is.
Honeyman had this made for the family a couple years ago.
10. Fat Santa
He always goes near the top of the tree. He's heavy. I have all kinds of Santas on the tree, but this one is a family favorite. We found it at the DAV thrift shop several years ago.
So, do you have any special ornaments
or other traditions?
