Wednesday {words}

Pin It

... the Christmas Edition

Lest you think that my new blog header is completely off color well, there's a story behind the phrase.  And really, a little humor is always fun.  Right? :)

We laugh a lot in our home and the holidays are no exception.

For example, our headless shepherd.  I love this nativity set but there's one unfortunate shepherd who always seems to topple over.  Because he's been glued a million times all it takes is his annual fall and the poor guy is headless again.


And then there's the time when Chaney was 3 and decided to take advantage of the laundry being folded on the couch.  She got too quiet and then came to find me and show off how she decorated our Christmas tree with my um... unmentionables. 

No, there are NOT pictures of that.  Because I wasn't blogging back then.


Oh, and Elf on the Shelf!  Do ya'll do this?  We were a little late to the party and only started this tradition last year but it was an absolute blast.  He made his first appearance last night... a day early because apparently the other kids at school have already had their elves appear and Chaney was positive that he wasn't going to come back.


Lastly, Steve is That Guy... you know the one on every street who goes all out with lights, inflatables, etc. outside. 

It seems Chaney has become That Kid because this is what I came home to on Monday night.  The two of them went to Lowes unsupervised and are now both blaming each other for the outhouse on our lawn. 

It's pretty obvious that we are already in full swing yet I have also resolved to slow down, enjoy the true meaning of the season and of course laugh a little too...

omg! We have a Christmas prank that has been ongoing for about 8 years , it started with putting a Homer Simpson Santa in the neighbor's pristine victorian white lights yard. Each year something different is done, and they still don't know it's us doing it. You have just given us the best idea for this year's display. Thank you so much!

Frankly it's just not Christmas until the balls are on the wall, right? And the tree. Love your outhouse and I really love the American tradition of decorating outside with lights. Of course lots of Aussies do too, but it's summer there and with daylight savings it isn't dark 'til 9pm, which is a bit late to be loading the kids into the car to drive around the neighbourhood. Plus, they just look better in the cold weather, especially with snow a la the Griswalds. Happy decorating!
