Oh Christmas tree…(:

Finally I have a chance to write about my tree…here I go.

We get our tree every year from Home Depot, before we make the purchase…we eat out at a mexican food restaurant called Mario’s..its absolutley delicious!!!

I name my christmas trees every year, last years was Watson and this years is Lord Byron! after the poet..the name seemed so fitting..i did have it picked out before we even got our tree but my goodness does it fit this tree is amazing…hands down the best tree we have ever gotten.

Now before lord Byron looked like this it was absolutely naked haha

and of course..Hunter..our cat who is ruler of the house hold had to do his rounds and make sure this tree was fit for our viewing of this holiday season

 He was only scared away when our little pup Tootsie came wandering out to see what he was up to. Most of the ornaments on the tree this year were hand painted by me and my mother…these are my favorite ornaments

The last picture is of my favorite ornament, its Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in drag for Some Like It Hot (:

I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas and got a tree is as happy with theirs as we are with ours!


Officially Christmas..

Well..its here! The best time of the year (yeah it’s a fact)..it is now Christmas time because I have finally gotten to “Eloise at Christmas Time”(I really feel like a little kid right now..full of christmas spirit(; ). This movie is amazing, at least to me it is..Eloise is hilarious her attitude and behaviour makes her adorable and the way she handles all her different adventurous situations will always making me laugh no matter how old I am. I watched Eloise with a cup of apple cinnamon tea and my two pups Daisy and Tootsie passed out by my side. Christmas movies are such fun, the point of the post isn’t to say that “Eloise at Christmas Time” is my favorite one it’s just that its kicks off the holiday. My favorite christmas movie is of course “A Christmas Story”.. Oh how I adore that movie.. whats not the love?? the leg lamp..the crazy Bumpuses dogs that run through the house..the PINK bunny footsie pajamas…the “Chinese turkey” at the chinese food resteraunt..Randy eating like a little piggy at the table and finally Mr. Parkers hilarious battle with the furnace. I really cant wait to watch “A Christmas Story” with my family..its one of the best parts of christmas. Christmas really also is incomplete unless you stock up on hot chocolate, candy canes, egg nog (and a lovely egg nog scented candle that i thought would be nasty but smells amazing) and my favorite christmas cookies.. pepparkakor which is really just ginger snaps but to me they are even more special. I soon will be making hundreds of these just for the holidays and ill be sure to post the recipe I always use and pictures. I hope everyone has a great weekend and an amazing start to this holiday season.
