This is what happens when you let your children decorate for Christmas. I came down to breakfast one day last week and this was my centerpiece. The Chick-Fil-A Pez Cow, the dill we had salvaged from the garden before it snowed and froze, the silver pine cone that didn’t end up on the tree this year, the candy my mother shouldn’t have bought, and an… ALIEN?
Nothing says Christmas like an extraterrestrial on your breakfast table, watching you eat your Captain Crunch. Let me tell you!
So this is my first day of Christmas photo post… I just couldn’t resist the “in a tree” reference there. For those of you living in a fog that haven’t heard the 12 Days of Christmas, it begins with a “partridge in a pear tree”. Why someone would want that for Christmas, I don’t know, either.
I’ll keep my alien and the kids that put him on the table, thankyouverymuch. No partridges for me. And pear trees are over-rated. I’d rather have a peach, a Montezuma Cypress, a Vitex, or a big sprawling Live Oak.
