Well folks, I keep my promises!
Here it is:
A funky Jingle-Bug tree topper!
A new tradition has been born... go around the house to find what we can put on top of the tree.
This year, I also tried a slinky tree topper.
Obviously, the slinky wasn't cutting it.
I tried the play Christmas tree that Grandmama gave Cora last year.
Not too bad, but not quite right.
Hedwig the owl (known around here as "Owly"... clever, clever) was close but he just didn't cut the mustard (I got that saying wrong, didn't I?) compared to Jingle-Bug.
So, it was decided... Jingle-Bug Topper, it was.
Last year we used two different ornaments to make a Santa Claus tree topper.
And, for the 4 years before that, we used a giraffe ornament that I think Scott got at the San Diego zoo.
Soon, I will show you some of my favorite ornaments and what my house has got going on for the holidays!
Does anyone vote for Hedwig or any of the other choices? Next year, I may be looking to turn an old giraffe stuffed animal into the tree topper. I loved the giraffe ornament but he was just too teeny tiny of a little fellow.
One more thing... a little BIRTHDAY holla holla HOLLA!
