This is a photo of Cheryl and I with Santa Claus! Or, at least, an unhappy looking man dressed up as Santa Claus. I think Cheryl looks adorable with that big bow in her hair, but I think I look like an oversized boy baby.
While I'm being both vain AND self-deprecating, I thought I'd share my favorite Santa and Me photo from the tree. When I was a kid, this is how I smiled. Really. Ask me to smile, and I bore my teeth like a jackal. Cute!
These are two little bundled up lovers. My parents picked this one up shortly after they got married, one million years ago, and it's really adorable. I love the shiny gold and metal vintage ornaments we have scattered about the tree.
This is a little, tiny book with that contains images and verses from Deck the Halls. It's one of my favorites because I love books, especially tiny ones, and that song.
The Campbell's Kids! This is one of my absolute favorite ornaments. My mom got it from Campbell's Soup by sending away for it back in 1986. I love the style of it, and how downright adorable it is.
I hadn't noticed this ornament until this year, but it's now one of my favorites. It's a beautiful little wooden violin that, according to my mother, was on her tree when she was a youngin'.
Horton! A few years back, I got way into Horton Hears a Who. We found this ornament on super clearance during the off-season, and every year I get really excited to hang Horton and little tiny baby Horton up on the tree. Because I'm a mature adult. Oh, and uh, don't mind the horrifying pasta angel amalgamation just to the left of little tiny baby Horton. The real pasta angel's head broke off, and when another ornament's head fell off, I uh took it upon myself to fix everything! The result was that. Beautiful, no? Speaking of which, let's end on two of the creepier ones!
Little One-eyed Raggedy Annie! She also has no arms. But boy, is she cute. My mom picked this one up years ago, not that you can tell. And now, everyone's favorite...
One-eyed Porky Pig! Now, I'm not sure why we have so many amputated, disintigrating, creepy ornaments on our tree, but I can say that I love it. Not only is Porky one-eyed, but he's also inexplicably not wearing any pants. Merry Christmas!
And there you have it! The busiest Christmas tree in all of Christmas land. Do you guys have any fun/weird ornaments that you love to hang up?
