I was visiting all my blogroll this morning and Jackie@our moments our memories Made known to me this Siesta Fiesta ornament exchange. See side bar button. Sounds like fun. Now Whitney had suggested us MN Gals do this for our White Christmas gathering. I'm in for that too. I love ornaments I can go through my crates and tell you who and when I got it. Oh yes, you know that tradition of decorating your tree with your kids? I don't have that! I do it. The tree is my canvas, nobody touches the canvas. I need to get another tree for the children because I just feel scroogy not letting anyone decorate the tree. Last year I tried. I got all the lights on. Left the room and Hubby had let the kiddos put some ornaments on. GASP! I had to leave the room. When they finished the branches were hanging to the ground loaded with their ornaments. I killed me to sit there and look at it. Finally bedtime came and I was able to "adjust" the tree. Butter, wise little nut came up the next morning and said"Hey where's my fairy I put her here last night."
"Well, you see honey she didn't like being there. She is a fairy and fairies like to be up high so they can see what's going on. Pus she's glass and we wouldn't want her to get broken when we put gifts under the tree?
And you can tell which ones are special or expensive cause they are up top. The ones I don't care if the cat or dog get are at the bottom. And all those crazy cartoon ones the kids get from well wishers. Arghh. I'm going to shut my mouth right now and be gracious.
Are any of you this way? I'm starting to think I may need some therapy about this.
So who's in for an exchange!?!
