Be Jolly By Golly Blogfest!



So Jen over at unedited and her friend Mellisa are doing a Be Jolly by Golly blog fest and I thought I'd join in the fun.

The year my Hubby and I bought a fake tree was the year Christmas died for me.  We ended up getting a pretty amazing deal on it... $500 tree for $80.  But despite my frugal nature, I coudn't muster too much of the Christmas Spirit.

Maybe it's because I'm in a competion with my neighbors for holiday decoration and I lost every year until I accidently murreder his decorations. Or maybe it's because my other neighbors stole the battery  out of my light up wreath.  

Christmas got fun again when my daughter was born and now that Santa Clause no longer terrifies her, it's getting pretty exciting.  My hubby started shopping back in June and now she has more gifts than a Toys R Us. 

But let's focus on the happy, shall we?


Our Lego Christmas Village.  My Hubby LOVES Legos and instead of buying some fancy Christmas Village (my parents have one that's the evny of all who see it) we  opted something a little different.
Apparently it has some ULTRA RARE lego pieces- yep I didn't know there was such thing as rare lego pieces, but there is.



Stocking hung with care.

And of course the tree...wanna hear something SO annoying my daughter's gifts have been wrapped since October.  You hate me now, don't you?




Here are our outdoor decorations--- the big thing is a polar bear.  Yep that's it... that's all the lights we have. 



Lastly we don't really have a Christmas traditional cookie at our house, but this year my daughter and I made cupcakes.



I'm off to listening to the Phineas and Ferb Christmas Special soundtrack... because it's awesome. 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

  3. From the person who has the "envy of all who see it village", take my advice. A village is what you make it. Rare Lego's? Nothing can compare to the pride that goes into creating something special that is uniquely yours. You are just beginning! :)
