any favorites you watch every year?
Naples had it's big Christmas parade the other night.
it's really so cute...
they have every band and firetruck in town with a few floats
thrown in for good measure:)
i think next year i'm going to wrap lights around Maui and ride him through town.
he's about as big as a float:)
my sugarplum fairy rode on the Naples Ballet float
so that was really COOL for us!
(this is last year's sugarplum fairy costume...
she's wearing PINK this year:)
on to SHOPPING!
any tips for me?
because i am just not feeling it this year.
I will probably do much of it online.
guess i better get going!
now i'm not saying this next part because you can order them from
but did you know you can order AMAZON.COM gift cards
right here, at the top of my blog?
seriously, i'm ordering a few cards myself today:)
and i saw this idea which i am SOOOOO doing for next year...
take a plain binder and print out some christmas photos, 2012...
and you have a Christmas idea binder for gifts, decorations you want to try,
so...have you been baking?
we haven't...maybe after Nutcracker.
actually, i might just make about 10 batches of my favorite wreath cookies...
i know...cookies made with cornflakes, butter and marshmallows?
hey. i'm a simple kind of girl:)
but i have to say, if you've never made them...
and if you like rice krispie treats...
you'll LOVE these treats!
last up, let's talk LIGHTS!
i put a few up at my mom's house...
BUT...it took the WHOLE week to get them to work right!
just call me Clark Griswold:)
(but isn't mr. snowman cute?)
i wasn't going to put any up around here...
then last night i had an idea.
as soon as i'm done...and it may take a week...i'll be sure to show you!
