Yes, we all wore our crowns from the Christmas crackers, just so I could humiliate everyone with this photo. Just kidding, sort of. ;D Beer bottles on the table. Classy, huh? Oh well we are not completely full of etiquette. We did place napkins in our laps, if that counts. lol
I was partnered with Elizabeth for the Vintage inspired Christmas Swap. What fun it was putting together her package.Of course as always I did not photograph what I sent. Darnit. One day I will do that, just like the before and after photos I always forget to take of our home projects. Oh well nobody is perfect and I never claimed to be. Not even close. Look at this gorgeous package Elizabeth sent me!
She took the time to actually burn me a Christmas music CD. Isn't the label so darn cute?! She's so talented.
Look at the pretty Vintage tags she sent me. Do you recognize the maker? Yep, Sherry Smyth of Esprit D'Art.
This lovely bookmark was made by none other than Miss FiFi Flowers. Check out here artwork here.
Look at these two treasures she sent. Vintage ornaments. Aren't they darling?!
Elizabeth sent this thin ribbon candy that is made right where she lives. Love it.
Okay, so no Christmas goes without a hitch around here, so this one was no different. Yes, that is Chris and Jack splicing our Christmas lights back together. I asked the Mr. to put the star on the tree and of course he had to cut a few branches to make it fit. So while doing that our son said,"dad the red bulb is flickering , you might want to stop". My daughter and I chimed in that they are blinking lights. Well, turns out that one wasn't. Oops! ;D No worries a little electrical tape and some splicing and voila we were back in business.
Jack set up the train his father left him around the Christmas tree. This track can become huge but I have to limit him because he would wrap the darn thing around the whole living room if I let him. He also has a whole lumber yard of buldings and all sorts of cars for his train.
Well, that sort of sums up our Christmas. We did a lot of shopping and way too much eating and played games and enjoyed one anothers company. It was a nice Christmas.
