christmas skellys, cupcakes, trees and baby pies!

linda with boney and bonita
Happy Wednesday!  I had a few girls over last night to make faux cupcakes.  we had a good time.  My friend Linda decided to go talk to Santa and his reindeer out on my front porch.  I think the reindeer, (aka.. bonita) thought Linda was pretty funny!  she really seems to be laughing at her!  Santa (aka boney neroni) just looks like hes listening!

anyway, we had a good time.  I didnt make any for myself, but theirs all turned out really cute!

I already have enough! lol!   I finished decorating my tree over the weekend.  It is such a pretty little tree.  I do admit that I miss having a real tree and a much bigger tree, but with the parrots cage in the living room, we cant fit anything else.  But I do love this tree, so its all good!

Its over the hump day!  I will be very busy this weekend trying to finish up the bulk of my shopping.  there are some things that I will wait til the following weekend.. (paycheck..) to get, like gift cards and some of the stocking stuffers.   I finished Violets christmas stocking.  its got pink snowmen on it.. so cute!

I'm hoping to start my baking this weekend too.  I  make the same 5 kinds every year, sugar cookie cutouts, gingerbread men, jam thumbprints, peanutbutter kisses and dog turds!  LOL!  I think they are called date balls, but we call them dog turds!
wanna see the cutest little reindeer?????

isnt she stinking adorable????  
I know.. thank you.
ok.. girlie pies.. Ive got to run..  out into the freezing cold.  we didnt get much snow here at all, but south of us they are getting dumped on.  my poor bethany could barely get home from work last night.  I felt so bad for her, she ended up pulling into someones drive way and sitting she got so scared because she couldnt see anything.   my poor gertie.. but she made it home eventually.  Thank God.  I was praying for her.
toodles for now!

I went to turn onto our road last night and my brakes locked up and I was skidding in the snow... I hate this stuff! And this morning, I was scraping ice off my car, which I haven't done in three years, courtesy of your son, and my hair literally froze into icicle sticks! Haha.
See you Sunday....

What fun your friends must have had with their cupcakes. Leave it to you to have your skeletons all decorated for Christmas. I must share this with Chris. He'd love your holiday skeletons. They should have canceled school today in my neck of the woods. It took me FOREVER to get to work. We have quite the storm brewing outside. A white Christmas is definitely happening this year. Josie is thrilled.

Happy Wednesday!

Merry Christmas Viv! Your cupcake party looked so fun! What a great idea. I also adore your little baby reindeer! What a sweetheart! You kitchen looks so pretty! Oh, I am so behind on decorating this year! Ugg!!

Oh Viv I love your tree so much! Each ornament looks special or handmade. The downside of collecting all the vintage ornaments like I do is that I have NO connection to them at all! I don't even know where they came from! LOL
Violet looks so sweet. I hope you'll show us her stocking.
Do I dare make your faux cupcakes with my niece and nephew this weekend? They are 3 and 5! Would it be a nightmare of a mess? LOL
Let me know what you think.
Erica :)

It sounds like a good time over at your house, Vivian! Everyone's faux cupcakes look great. Your tree looks wonderful. Love that little reindeer ~ she is adorable. : ) I have one or two things left I want to pick up {for hubby} but otherwise I'm done. Well, after I mail out a couple of packages, then I'll consider myself done!

Oh- I so love coming here to see what you are up to, Viv. LOVE your tree- it is just darling. It looks like your friends had fun. One of your "couch potatoes" looks a tad anorexic to me....xo Diana
