Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: Ho, ho, ho

It is that time again: Stuff Portrait Friday Christmas style at Random and Odd.

The assignment for December 23:
Your favorite wrapped present
Something new you added to your decorations this year
Your Christmas cards

My favorite wrapped present reflects my affinity for all things penguin. This one is for me from my mother-in-law.

My other favorite wrapped package *wink* and I don't mean the tree.

I tend to add a few new thing each year to my deocrations. This one is a new stocking for Hot Rod. He was jealous that daddy had a Vikings stocking and he didn't. So, I found this homemade one on ebay.

And our Christmas cards. I put them on the pantry doors this year to dress up the kitchen some.

And a bonus SPF, our giant 12-foot tree. I didn't decorate the stairs this year because I just didn't want to. *shrug* The kids have knocked decorations off the tree playing football and tennis in the front room. Also, some of the darker colored ornaments seem to wash out in the pic. It really isn't that bare on there. Check out the little mouse at the bottom right.

Now for a closer look at the mouse.

I can't remember what year we got the mouse, but it is something my mom and dad used on their tree probably starting around the time I was in high school. So, it is an old mouse. The tree skirt, which is hard to see here, was handmade (no sewing machine) by me for Christmas 1991.

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I have my Harry Connick Jr. Christmas CD in the minivan right now. Too. Maybe if I'm a good girl, Santa will put Harry in my stocking. I'll start my letter now.
