Yes, have a lovely day everyone!

I passed on the tree this year, but did do four wreaths out front with some lights on a timer. It looks pretty good, actually.

We typically spend the day hanging out watching old movies and fielding calls from the kids and my parents.

Christmas eve we go to town (DH only does this once a year) and we get a holiday cd and some fancy candy, poke around at Tractor Supply and then the grande finale, my jeweler. Who kindly puts a glass of win in DH's hand to steel him for the annual purchase. (It's not much, the budget is always 500 dollars.)

Then we get home, put the kids (horses) to bed and watch Christmas movies.

I'll bet the excitement is killing you guys

Sounds pretty good to me - especially the $500 jewelry part

Christmas Eve has always been the celebration night and Christmas Day is the do what ever you want. Believe this - I am taking down the tree - yep. I am ready to get on with next steps and packing all this stuff away has to happen. Everything has to be package to sustain a major move so it will take time. These are my treasures after all. Lots of memories.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

It used to be three times a year to the jeweler, Valentine's, birthday and Christmas. Back in the big(ger) money days.

Don't need or want so much these days.

Wow taking the tree down already! Go you!

Don't most people who wear dentures do that ?

Perhaps - it made a big impression on me as a child.

But suppose the teeth had jumped out of the glass or better, out of his mouth.

What a Christmas surprise.

I remember seeing a cartoon where the teeth were jumping around and chattering

These denture posts bring back bad memories for me.... my father had very bad fitting dentures and after dinner, he took them out and put them on the side table next to his chair, when he watched TV. It was always so embarassing when my boyfriend came over and tried to talk to him without his teeth. I was mortified !!!!

Egads, Barb, how embarrassing. I think I remember my frandpa doing something like that, he wouldn't display them but he had to go put them in for meals. I guess they can be uncomfortable.
