More and more like Christmas!

Hello again! Another weekend past and a new week before us... and the countdown to Christmas well and truly underway in our house. It's the main topic of conversation amongst the kids and they have written lists and put in requests .... now all we need is the good behavior! LOL!

I did manage to complete one more thing from my list. It had to be a quickie and this snowman nodder was just the ticket~

I picked up a little treat for myself when out shopping - a lantern for my shelf

We went to the Christmas tree lighting up parade on Friday night but the town was packed and it was difficult to get a good view but we moved on up the route and saw the parade better. I think the theme was Christmas from around the world. There were some amazing costumes and decorated floats but my pics don't do them justice.

Santa waving to the crowds..
Hope you enjoyed your visit! Remember to be on your best behavior! Santa will be checking his list soon!

Have a lovely week and hope to hear from you!


  1. Great post...that was some parade...makes our little hometown parade put to shame....but,I look forward to it every year :) Have a very blessed Thanksgiving.

  2. Hello Christine! I love your nodder, he's a sweet heart, but that lantern is just fabulous! Nothing like a parade! Just love them, they bring out the kid in me!

  3. Hi Miss Christine,

    Oh, I am being a beary good bear. Flora - on the other hand - is being naughty. She spoiled our Thanksgiving picture so I think she has been moved to the "naughty" list at the North Pole.

    We like the lantern. What a nice way to begin the holiday - with a "me" present.


  4. You are just getting too creative for the rest of us Christine!! LOL Love your snowman nodder and your lantern is adorable!! I want one!! :)))
    The parade looks like fun~ours is tomorrow night.

  5. While everyone is wishing each other a Happy Thanksgiving, I will be wishing you a Merry Christmas. The parade sounds wonderful. From what I see of you pictures, it was spectacular. My kids finished their lists too. You are right, we just need good behavior:) -Steph-

  6. I love your nodder and that lantern is so cute! The parade sure looked like fun!! I think I need to go to something like that to help get me in the mood! Time has just been flying by and with the weather we've been having it doesn't seem like it's time to be getting ready for Christmas.

    Have a great day!

  7. That nodder is adorable Christine! Too sweet! That looks like an amazing parade! The town we live closest to (and claim) always has the lighting parade the weekend following Thanksgiving - I only went a few times - I'm not a huge fan of freezing and the times I went it was mostly cars advertising some political party or union, etc. Not real conducive to the holiday spirit if you know what I mean! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead....Here, we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  8. Cute snowman nodder! What a cute gingerbread man in the parade!!

  9. What a fantastic parade...I haven't been to one in decades, I think. Love your lantern...


  10. The parade looks like fun, and the place it is being held in looks so pretty, love the interesting building. Happy Thanksgiving

  11. It all looks magical!
    I believe I just caught a bit of Christmas spirit :)
    I hope you and your family have the most wonderful holidays.

  12. You best be a good girl too, my dear Christine.. smile...

  13. I LOVE your cute snowman nodder Christine, you are very talented and that little lantern is gorgeous! So many nice things in the stores just now...sooo hard to resist :0) I'm going to Dobbies on Saturday and know I will be very tempted x

  14. I like your snowman. I saw your pinkeeps. Don't you just love working on them. They are one of my favorite things.
    It must be nice to get to have such a long time to plan for Christmas. I think having to get Thanksgiving out of the way before I start sometimes is a bit hard.
    They just are so close together. Though, I could work on pumpkins 6 months a year.
    I enjoy looking at all of your handwork.
    Have a nice week.

  15. My goodness your parade makes our look puny! lol Ours really shouldn't be called a parade. They have a few fire trucks and Santas But the kids still love it.


Thanks so much for expressing an interest - kind thoughts always appreciated!
