'tis the season...

...for loud holiday clothing.

Every year (for a lot of years now) my family gets together with the Dust Bunny family for a gift exchange. This year we decided to notch up the silly level by all dressing in either tacky Christmas clothes or ugly holiday sweaters. Here we are (actually on Dec 18th):


Unfortunately my arm was covering the obnoxious Santa face on my sweater. You can get an ever-so-slightly better look at it below. This is where we are playing holiday charades (using teams of two). Here's Dust Bunny and me, obviously quite amused with ourselves.



'Tis also turning into the season for snow here! Looks like we are going to have a white Christmas, which is quite rare for us. Today Hubby, Offsprings #1&2, and I took a walk on the snowy dike road. Here I am (and Mr. Ed is in the background.)



I started off using the snowshoes, but ended up carrying them (because I could go a little faster without them!)

There is nothing more fun than ugly holiday sweaters. I am still hunting after one with pink flamingos. Is that your Mr. Ed? Or a neighbor's? How cool.

I love your sense of silliness. I wish I could infect my family with it.

PG, Mr. Ed belongs to a distant neighbor.
