Bring the happy!
The fake, plastic, non-allergenic tree is finally up. It wasn’t fun, never is, but bourbon really makes all things easier sometimes. I have this really expensive sipping bourbon, given to me as a gift, that I’ve been milking for over three years now.
The tree also has several dinosaurs on it as my daughter was really into them for several years. Still is to an extent, but she’s moved onto drawing them instead of collecting them in physical form. I’ll have to post one of her drawings for a future TTT.
The Elf (last year for it finally)
This thing is more annoying than helpful this year. Twice we’ve forgotten to move this creepy faced menace in our house and of course, our daughter the astute observer, noticed every time. This was my placement after my wife had sent to bed early, she rolled her eyes and told me to not do it again.
Gingerbread House Night
My daughters school has an annual tradition of bring families together and building gingerbread houses. We cheated this year and brought ourselves a pre-made house that was undecorated. One family literally made a mansion, from scratch, with internal lights placed throughout…. they need more constructive things to do with their time but the thing was impressive none the less.
Out of Control Tradition
My wife has received one of these Hallmark animated stuffy things for the last 10 years, it’s getting a little crazy now. This actually isn’t all of them, we ran out of room on the buffet server. It’d be nice of Hallmark made these things a little smaller or provided a shelf or something to put them on. I’ve lost my ability to find it adorable that we have so many, especially when my daughter hits every button and they’re all going at once. I think we’re going to have a battery theft followed by a severe shortage in the very near future.
