Do you have favorite holiday tradition? Whenever I start decorating I touch memories of my parents and the fun we had at Christmas. Some of my favorite decorations come from my and hubby's parents. My dad made wooden Deer for us. I put them up the other day and this is what happened...
My hubby posted a funny news statement "Today witnessed a
tragic scene, here in Asheville a nefarious wind decimated a herd of peaceful wooden reindeer. Life may never be the same again!"
My dad would have laughed over this.
He and his friend would play jokes with these reindeer. One year his friend tried to steal them. I saw someone in the yard and yelled out, "someone is stealing the dear". My frail dad about knocked me over trying to get to the door to stop them...hee hee it was his friend. Such great memories. I miss them so much.
Thankfully, I have my daughters and grandsons.
Holiday Shopping is always a hit with me. My daughter and grandson took me to my favorite Antique Shop "Screen Door" and to Lunch.
You know you go shopping way to much when your favorite shop keepers say "the grandboy sure is getting tall"!! We love it. So, some favorite shots around the shop...
My Christmas ornament swap were great. The snowman swap fits right in with my display in the living room
