Checking in so I can catch up! Clay I saw the last part of your post and I think you are missing just 1 more battle cry: ZOMBIE ATTACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that's DS2's favorite one right now and I think he's just a bit older than Tor). I also would like a bouncy house for my kids. Perhaps we can have one together and then sip tea while the kids bounce around and wear themselves out.
I just checked up on the holidays this year and I'm in for a trifecta of pain since Yule, Hanukkah & Christmas are all landing at the same time/week. Oi Vay!! I forsee a soup & latkes kind of dinner on the 21st. with a Yule Log Cake to boot!
I love hearing about everyone else's ideas for the holidays and I want to steal that spiral candle idea, I just need to a make a holder for them - so next year, next year I will incorporate it!
Tomorrow is the day I will start putting up decorations and it will all come down at the end of 12th night (January 5th). Did anyone see in the Land of Nod magazine the cute felt banners and stuff? I will be trying my hand at making those *Squeeee* but setting my expectations low on how they will turn out.
Are we interested in starting up/participating in our Yule Card Exchange?? Or shall I bring it up again in December's thread
Love you to all as the holidays are about to start!!!
