Merry Christmas!

We went to get a tree at a local tree farm with hot cocoa and apple cider, hay rides, and a little photo thingee. So here we are!

I have posted images of some of our fun ornaments in years past but I thought I would show some of the new fun things on our tree. Here is a bacon ornament from Archie McPhee, which we got last year.

This year's Archie McPhee addition is this stylish mustache.
I mustache you a question, but I'll shave it for later.

We also have Hawaii ornaments on the tree now,

and a new penguin.

This is a local ornament, showing the boat parade.

 This is a gingerbread house made by Thing Two, from the back...

and this is the front view.
Thing One and Cheesypickles made a Christmas gingerbread train. 

I made Christmas crack for our neighbors, here shown in the dark chocolate version topped with macadamia nut, oooooh so goood.

 BTW, I finished my first term of grad school with a 3.7, boom, baby! Feeling good.

Great GPA! I love your ornaments. We have some special ones from family vacations, too.

I believe I need to start a new addiction: Christmas crack.

The ornaments, from bacon to boat show, are just wonderful. Ornaments with a story--that's what I like.

Congrats on your GPA. I always knew you were smart. As for me, well, I'm just a fart smeller.
