Fun Monday

* Note* I edited this a third time this morning (Monday) and added the picture at the bottom.

Kaytabug has our Fun Monday assignment:










In the spirit of the season I would like to see your favorite Christmas
tree ornament. Not to be confused with the WHOLE tree. I want you to zoom in and
show me one or a few(you know I can't choose just one!) of your favorite
ornaments. If you don't decorate a tree, show me your menorah or dreidel,
Kinara, or Yule Log. I want to see your favorite decoration for this holiday
season.









This is a little bit hard for me. I haven't even really walked up to the tree and studied the ornaments very well. The kids put the tree up while I was busy. Yeah, real busy. I was blogging or something.



The kids like the tree. I am not so into stuff. It kind of feels cluttery to me and my life is cluttery enough. But they like it and I am glad they enjoy it.





SO , UGH! My favorite decorations? Man oh man... Are Christmas cookies decorations?



I am going to think about this tonight and post a picture in the morning. Maybe I will have each of the kids pick there favorite ornament and then I can post 6 pictures. That might be fun...


Edited later on Sunday night:


I found out why I don't like my Christmas tree very much. I need these ornaments. These are on Swampy blog. I found her tonight. She speaks a funny language and is maybe a witch? I don't care. She has pictures of great ornaments!



I think I will just post the beautiful cookies that we made tonight and then I won't feel like a total thief , taking Swampy's ideas.

EDIT:

Okay, while making lunches this morning (Monday) I saw this macrame Christmas tree my mom made in the early 80's. I really like it a lot. So I found something in my own house to post. I am really proud of myself. I hope Kitten has a really easy assignment next week. Something like... type the alphabet. or show us a picture of your big toe. Are you reading this Kitten?

oh, the cat looking in the door is one of the cats that I posted about in October that I had actually had a soft enough heart to let live in the house. You can see how that worked out. I know I will get PETA animal loving granola eaters breathing down my throat for throwing those cats outside but man, they stink. Really bad.

Cute tree, and I am all for the easy stuff, too!

The cat looks so cute (I'm ignoring the bit about the stink!)
Your mom made a nice tree and it looks good on the door.

Kaycie said...

I like that tree. I think it's very cool.

Sandy said...

Macrame! How could I have forgotten macrame?

Thanks for sharing.

I like the tree, and your post is funny. Ta for the laugh. :D

Sauntering Soul said...

You are hysterical!

My mom and one of my aunts used to be macrame queens. I'm shocked we don't still have one of these trees around. I think there is a macrame owl in a basement somewhere to this day.

I can't remember visiting your blog before, but I am SO laughing! Your writing style is right up my alley.

I recognize your masthead - I think.

Love this post! (And the mice below are great!)

I like the tree on the door. I won't tell PETA on you, promise.

Chrys said...

too funny! macrame, oh I remember. It makes me itchy!

Mrs. Darling said...

How funny! I d like the tree on the door though. I dont like cats very well at all so I have no problem with the creature staying outside.

HA!HA! I don't know if my mom wrote that or not...chances are, not. I keep forgetting to ask her about it, though. I think she will be mortified when I tell her. I am betting on Russell. By the way, I loved the pictures of Molly playing outside. I love days like that. Here, they are accompanied by a few feet of snow. I need a little Tennessee!

Kaytabug said...

Nice tree! Cookies would have counted!

Robinella said...

Yes, especially if they are the cinnamon ones Kitten and I like to make and share.
