Well, the gifts have been made (or purchased), exchanged and unwrapped. I've dug out and dusted off my pre-holiday projects (which feels pretty good to get started on again).
The Christmas decor still lingers, but in a week it will be packed snugly away for another year.
But one thing that is still with me, and I'm afraid might be for months to come...
Oh my, did I ever over indulge.
We had our family Christmas party at my Brother and sister-in-law's new home this year.
Doesn't her food look like art?!
|At home we have an odd-gift-giving tradition with the kids. They make us laugh each year as we hang them on the tree and it's funny to watch others do a double take when they get their first glance at one. Here are a few...|
|Condensed Tomato Soup Can|
|Long Legged Moose|
|No so weird, but I love this guy. He was given to us from a newly-found friend, Darcy, and her family.|
|Clockwise from the top: Teddy in tub, a beaver (?), a toaster and I really don't know about the last one...he looks like a mix between a hamster and a bird.|
|This little monkey man looks like he's ready for a Christmas party. Check out his blingin' ring.|
|Fat bird. Little feet.|
|Well, I'm off to prepare for the next round of holiday festivities (that being New Years , of course). Hope you're having a nice Christmas season with the family and are able to rest a bit now that the shopping part is over. Ahhhh.... XX's ~Jen|
