Well, a white, silver and blue Christmas that is...
I have been having so much fun decorating for Christmas. I have been stalking any blogs I can find that have beautiful white and silver decorating...and blue though that's harder to find.
About 3 or 4 years ago is when I changed my decorating for Christmas from pink and white to blue and white. That's when I started collecting Snow Buddies. I collect them all, the real ones and the fake ones. I have never paid retail for one..always have bought them second hand so many of mine are missing their noses. I think they are just as cute with missing noses.
I think they are so cute..my favorite one is this ice cream truck I got this summer at Goodwill. It play "My Favorite Things" which come to find out is Janae's favorite holiday time song making it even more special. I also love the one I keep on my vanity during the holiday season.
I am just itching to get our Christmas tree. Thing is I always get a live tree..seems like I should living in Oregon. The problem is they don't last longer than a month and I don't want to have to take the tree down before Christmas! So I decorated my little fake tree in hopes that it would cure some of my impatience in the wait to get the big tree. Not sure if it's working.
And this brings me to a question that has been on my mind for about a week...
What ever happened to Tinsel?
I am kind of freaked out about it..did it get banned or something? I have looked in every store and can't find it anywhere. Thank goodness for Goodwill..as usual they saved the day and had some for me. Now I know that tinsel is very dangerous for animals, maybe that's why nobody uses it anymore? I am a huge animal lover so I am just going to put it on this small tree, that is up on a chest and our animals have no interest in it anyway. I just have to worry about Janae's puppies who visit often and will eat basically anything. So I guess no tinsel on my big tree. Maybe I'm the only one who still likes tinsel?
The other thing I can't find is flock in the cans. You know, big fluffy flock...not the window spray kind. I was thinking I want to flock certain places in my tree and make it look snowed on. I used to ALWAYS flock my whole tree but it is so expensive to have it done.
But one thing I did find..or I should say my best friend Eileen found is...
You just don't even know how excited I am. She found them in Salem at Walmart and she wouldn't even let me pay her back for them she said they are a gift..she is the best!
While picking up a prescription for Gage at Fred Meyer, I spotted this display of Christmas ornaments..I have to admit I wanted to load the display up in my car.
Some pictures from the weekend...
|We like to roast hotdogs outside, even in the cold|

If you follow Janae you've seen these pictures but I had to post them so they'll be in my blog book. Those are Janae and Chantel's stockings she hung by our front door so she could get this picture of the girls. Then there is the picture of Bunny FuFu--he is the most adorable bunny in the world. He roams freely in Janae's house and is the most calm bunny I've ever seen. He is like a bunny model, he poses so well! What a cute boy. I think we should paint his sleigh white.
Have a great week!
