These are a few of my favorite things......

So the tree is up and I meant to post this last Friday to go along with Kelly's Korner's show us your home for Christmas post. But, true to form, I am behind and just catching up. Here are my favorite ornaments that I have. They are Gone With the Wind and they are Hallmark Keepsakes. That is my favorite movie next to the Griswolds. I have the Barbie dolls too. I know, I know....go ahead.... I am a dork! My only beef is that they have not made a Mammy ornament. She would be a great one! I started collecting in 1997 so I am missing a few but ebay has some that I am looking for! WOOHOO

Okay, so I think I mentioned that I fell in love with a Santa picture at Kirklands and waited almost two months to buy it because I just knew it would be on sale on Black Friday. Well here it is! We also have our elf on a shelf. He has no name yet and probably won't get one until next year. Bryce hasn't caught on to it and Steven knows who reports to Santa!
The last of my favorite Christmas things would be our stockings. Steven and I had our made by my Grandma. Mine says love, Grandma on it! Since my grandmother had already left us before Blake and Bryce I ordered some from LL Bean for them and they fit right in! Blake finally got his this year. We have always put it off and finally ordered one this year. We always meant to but something always got in the way. Probably kids!

If you really know me, you know I love Strawberry Shortcake. I still have my blanket from my twin bed that was decorated in her designs. Here is one of my first Christmas Ornaments circa 1980!
Steven also said that I had to post his football player! They sure played this weekend against Florida like this guy looks! Maybe that is why Tebow was crying! HAHAHa, Ok that is all the fun I will make of Florida.

I am catching up slowly but surely, so hold on to your hats folks!
