First off, I want to thank everybody for yesterday. Your condolences are appreciated more than you can know. It's also scary looking at all of those comments and seeing how many of them mention a friend or family member who has been taken by cancer.
But that was yesterday. Today is about Christmas and decorations and guest posts. Guest posts? Oh yes, but let's leave that until later. I have a lot of favourite ornaments so deciding on just one was difficult. And choosing this one had nothing to do with the fact that our house is dark as a cave in the winter and this was the only picture that didn't look like donkey ass. This ornament, a present from my dear friend Bill, is always a favourite though. By Executive Order I can't really go into why, but if I could... oh we'd all laugh and laugh!
From Colepack: This is my favorite. Do not remember where/when I got him but he’s got some magic in that old silk hat he wears!
From Gimme' The Juice: Someone gave me this ornament the first Christmas after my mom died. It's a girl and an angel and every year I put in the on the tree it's my way of including my mom in my holiday.
Kim from Jogging In Circles. If you click on her picture you can see the photographer and a very nice large screen tv reflected in the bulb.
From Mama Dawg: I LOVE this little guy. He actually has 2 siblings that look exactly like him. However, I will always know my little Bobo. He's such a cutie.
From Me & You & Ellie: We just put up a Christmas tree for the first time in 8 years -- our stuff has been in a plastic bin in my mother-in-law's basement all this time we've been On The Road. My friend Nancy gave us some beautiful blown glass ornaments years and years ago, and it was just lovely to see them again, after all this time.
From Middle Aged Woman: This is the last surviving glass swan from my parents. Nobody else is allowed to touch it. Husband even made the special storage box to ensure it’s survival.
Thanks to all the contributors. Next week... Santa photos! Kids are grown up? Scan an old picture. No kids? Scan an old picture of yourself. Or a niece or nephew or something.
