Jeez, Hipmomma- your post made me laugh so loud the kids came running in to see what was the matter! I think your mom and my mom ought to get together.

We have a paper mache star that ds1 and dh made together last year, attached to a paper mache'd toilet paper tube and painted bright yellow with a cartoon happy face on one side and a cartoon scary face on the other. (not sure I want to know the story behind that...)

Tonight at my women's group we made wool roving angels- mine is orange, I'm calling her a fairy and the star is going ot have to share top billing now.

Luna-

I'm glad my life amuses you <heehee> I've actually had years where my mom has not gotten me anything for Christmas- because she spent too much on the dogs. LOL..

I think she cracked when I moved out

Your kids star sounds adorable...my theory is that one side is naughty and the other is nice (Do they believe in Santa?)

HipMomma- I like that theory- I have the nice side facing forward.

I am not sure if my kids believe in santa- we downplay that aspect of the yule as much as possible. I think my older son is aware of him, but I've never made out like it's santa that brings all the gifts- I think he realizes he's a pretend character. (he's all about categorizing "pretend" and "real" these days- is that a 5 yo thing?: ) I guess I'll have to ask!

Luna-

We just look at Santa as 1) The Holly King and 2) the personification of our feelings of affection for each other. Okay- that ones a mouthful for little ones, but basically we tell our kids that Santa isn't a real person so much as he is a picture of all the love that people have for one another this time of year.


If you really want to have fun- invite over some Fundie's over to talk and switch your star around to the naughty side first. <heehee>

What a beautiful bunch of trees! KeysMama, maybe you'll appreciate this. Our tree is topped with a starfish. All of our ornaments are made from seashells we've found throughout the Caribbean.
