Chuckie, I forgot to comment on your extravagant ornaments the first time round. They're fun and creative, just like you. Of course I liked the Brokie related ornaments best, and I love, love, love the Ennis truck.
Thanks for sharing, Bud! :)

Time to revive this thread :D.


I'm sitting here, listening to Christmas songs. Chris Rea is on right now, Driving home for Christmas - I looooove that song!

Listening to Christmas songs, having baked the first round of Christmas cookies last weekend, going shopping for a warm winter jacket later, having been on the Christmas market already this year, Advent festivity at my son's school yesterday - yep, I'm definitively in Christmas mood :D.


Here are my cookies from alst week. They're almost gone now, we'll bake more tomorrow :).
