Home Again, and Giggling

Pin It First, thank you all for the concern and prayers regarding my last post.  I really am doing okay, it's just that some days are hard.  I know you all know what I mean.

We got home safely, and I really just have a minute to post, but I am totally giggling and have to share.

Our Christmas ornaments have been through a lot.  Some have been through several moves, and most were not top quality to begin with.  I started a series of Disney ornaments about 19 years ago with the intention of saving them up and then giving them to my nephew when he was old enough to have his own tree.

Not gonna happen.  Sorry, nephew.

These ornaments really were so cute to start out.  Various Disney characters, brightly colored and cheery.  Through the years though, well, they have shown some wear and tear.

My oldest commented that opening the Christmas decoration box is a combination of Christmas and Halloween all in one.  Peter Pan is missing an arm.  Scrooge McDuck is missing a leg.  The number of intact dalmations is way less than 101.  The worst off is poor Snow White.  I am not sure what the dwarfs did to her, but she is missing a head.  (The only dwarf that is still here is grumpy.  'Nuff said.)

Now I can't stop giggling at the Christmas/Halloween tree.

At least it looks really pretty when it's dark and the lights are on!

(And yes, pictures are to come.  My memory card is full of pics from our trip and I've been afraid to get them off because I'm hoping that the perfect Christmas card pic is on there, and I don't want to be disappointed!)

oh this post made me laugh out loud seriously. The part about missing legs and arms and heads. Oh yeah, I can relate. We've lost at least a dozen of our glass bulbs this year from the two littlest monsters... I mean monkeys. It's great to be able to find things like that in life to laugh and smile about.

I'd have to say, given Grumpy's reputation, he's the guilty party.

Still chuckling over this post as I had to get rid of some "classic" ornaments because of things missing body parts.

LOL The majority of my ornaments (until this year) were all of my moms old teacher ornaments! I've finally bought some matching ones and will start building up the collecting for my kids.

I'm sorry you won't be able to give those to your nephew, but then again....maybe you don't want to give him Grumpy.....
