Christmas Crazy

Welcome to our brand of Christmas Crazy. It isn't that crazy this year because what is not pictured are the boxes of decorations in the living room that I didn't have time to put up. Since we are heading to Ohio Monday, it looks like they will never be put up.

Welcome to the home of Derek and Kim.

My favorite decorations are my pink reindeer. My grandma painted them for me, and I think they are so cute, if a little crazy.

Grandma also painted my ceramic Christmas tree. I think I get my artistic streak from her and my Dad.

And now, the creepy dolls. I got these when I was little. Pretty much the only dolls I ever got. I will never forget the American Girl doll I asked for that one year. Every box I opened I knew she would be in it. She never appeared. Instead, my sister got one. I never let my mom forget that Christmas and how she scarred me for life :) (Love you mom). I do actually, really love these dolls, and they play music!

I Hope this holiday season brings you so much Joy.

Let's go outside and play! So, there should be more lights, but we blew a fuse and had to stop. I don't think we will win the Christmas lights contest for our neighborhood now :(

See you next year!!! Merry Christmas!!!

To participate, or check out some more Christmas crazy, head on over to the Burgh Baby.

I LOVE those pink reindeer! And I have that same ceramic tree sans the snow tips. I guess your grandmother paid more attention to detail than my mother did! LOL!

Hope you have a save trip and a joyous Christmas celebration with your family.

Damama T's Christmas Crazy, too!

I absolutely love those pink reindeer.

I have a ceramic tree just like that - in fact I have 3 (two large and one tiny). My mom and grandma were both into painting cermaics back in the 1970's. What nice memories of them both from these trinkets they have left behind.

The outside of your house looks so beautiful and classic. I love it.

Seeing that tree makes me wonder what happened to my Grandma's tree like that. Beautiful pictures. I have to admit that the dolls are a bit creepy looking. The outside is nicely done!! Merry Christmas!

Your photos are FANTASTIC! Are you managing to harness natural light during the two hours a day it's actually bright out?

(And, sorry I'm late coming over. I didn't read much of anything for two weeks while I endured the holiday spirit around and about.)
