Mass Amounts of Greed

We opened out presents on the 25th of December this year.  Not our usual, as we celebrate the Winter Solstice, but this year S. was out of town for a wedding and since my parents celebrate Christmas, I figured it couldn’t hurt to do all on one day.

My parents arrived at my home at 1am, after midnight mass and promptly passed out.  Thankfully, since presents had been sitting under the tree all week, I was not awakened before dawn this year.  T. had taken it upon himself to play in the snow outside in the morning till we all awoke.  Around 7:30ish we all dragged ourselves into the Living room.  From that point on, it is all a blur.  I only have these pictures to remind of the event as I was still in Coma status throughout most of the morning, until Breakfast around 11am.  We had yummy waffles!  You’ll see why below.

Everyone enjoyed their copiious amounts of stuff and fun was to be had for the remainder of the day by having our Movie Marathon.  All movies having to do with this particular holiday have been consumed for the last week and that day was the pinnacle of our marathon with several goodies, such as “The Christmas Story” and “HogFather”.

We made captive of my parents for a couple more days before releasing them back out into the wild.  They enjoyed themselves, I think.

Enjoy the faces of pure glutuny and greed below!  Hope you holidays were bright and blessed with much love!


Path of Felted Acorns?

Yup, you guessed it!  For the second week of Advent, I felted acorns to represent the focus on plants.  Next week I am getting slightly stumped by the focus of animals and am not sure what I will use.  I do have an idea to use paw prints or beads in shapes of animals.  but here are the pics of the Advent sprial, so far.
