Purple icicle lights on our purple house. Do you really expect anything different from me? I know I know, I’m the crazy purple lady now. I embrace it. I’m sure you must think our Christmas tree is purple as well. It is not. I tried, but my man said no. And yes they do make 7 and 1/2 foot purple Christmas trees (pre-lit with purple lights). We compromised and got a 2 foot tabletop sparkly purple tree with purple lights. I can hardly be upset though. I mean, he DID agree to paint the entire exterior of the house purple. I can’t be too upset that he wants a green Christmas tree. But our xmas cookies (that we give out to the neighbors) will have purple colored frosting or purple sugar on top.
I just finished wrapping 463 gifts for our family. Why so many? Because two of my three kids have Christmas birthdays. That’s FIVE sets of gifts. It looks like a toy store threw up under our Christmas tree. A toy store full of wrapped presents, that is. I’d just like to say that I sincerely dislike wrapping irregularly shaped packages. I think next year I will do all my xmas shopping based on whether it comes in a nice square or rectangle box. If it’s an irregular shape... I won’t buy it. No matter if it’s on the top of the kids’ wish list. They can take that up with the manufacturer for putting their favorite toy in a half-hexagon shaped box. Not my fault. I’m not gonna buy it and I’m not going to wrap it.
On a completely unrelated note: If you happen to come across those new Oreo Cakesters in the grocery store... run as fast as you can in the opposite direction. Flee!!! Runaway!!! Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT pick them up and wonder if they are indeed as delicious as they look on the box. Do yourself a favor and stay far, far away from those evil temptations. I mean, I’m not saying I’ve been eating those things myself or that I’m on my third box or anything... I’m just speaking hypothetically, of course.
