zird is the word [userpic]
The children are lying all tucked in their beds. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and there has been too much cookie-eating in this house and not enough carol-singing. I plan to sing carols all day tomorrow except when we are actually at my sister-in-law's house since I know my kids will kill me dead if I try it there. :P Most of the presents are already wrapped and under the tree, except for the super secret Santa ones and the stocking stuffers. Tomorrow is the last (thank the baby jesus and his red-nosed friend) julbord of the year. We are contributing hard-boiled eggs, 3 kinds of home-made herring (courtesy of Anders), candy and sodas (for later in the evening) and what else: Christmas cookies! Of course!

Clockwise from top: Rice Krispie Holly Bars, Iced sugar cookies, Santa Snot (Holiday balls), Peanut Butter & Chocolate cookies, Chocolate & Butterscotch Chips

Merry Christmoose! What the plate looks like sans cookies (it was a Christmas gift this year from my friend Debbie which has already seen a LOT of use, natch!)

And 3 photo close-ups of our tree, just because it makes me so happy!

And why yes! That IS a hockey player Christmas ornament on our tree, courtesy of my mom, who has a peculiarly gifted talent for finding the perfect tree ornaments for each member of the family every year. I haven't actually counted the number of moose hanging from our tree but there are a lot of them, including a SOCK MOOSE. The hockey player belong to my husband. Along with hockey players, we also have several motorcycles, camping and cooking equipment, skiers and a SPARKLY BLOWN GLASS CIGAR. *sigh*

I love trees like yours - full of memories with every new ornament.
Merry X'mas, Liz!

Merry Christmas, Sharon!! :)


Oh Dear! "A peculiarly gifted talent" that is apparently going to terribly disappoint this year! I had been under the assumption that.... just was time to give that up. :( Although I really did have fun finding the special one! But I think there were just tooooo many complaints about that CIGAR and several others that could only be hung on the back of the tree! Come to think about it, I don't remember that Anders ever complained! Love, Lizardmom

totally pulling your CHAIN, mom! :D

Love the ornaments. And the cookies. Happy Christmas to you all!

And to you, too, Bethany! May your day be merry and bright!! :)

Liz, I love the way you and your family celebrate the holidays; the way one should. It all looks so warm and cheerful and festive. Have a wonderful time together.

*sings some off-key Christmas carols for you.*

*sings harmony with you*

What a bright, cheerful Christmassy entry. I love my ornaments too. It is fun to see them each year. Happy memories.

It sure is! I love unpacking and hanging my ornaments. Brings back so many lovely memories of places and years!

oh loveliest LOVELIEST lizardek

you make EVERYTHING merry and bright!!! How I love coming to your site for your energy and creativity and exuberance-- if I could do a Star Trekkie thing and zap myself over to your living room I so would!! But I will have to content myself with gazing up at my Swedish blue platter that always brings your smiling face to mind and know that soon soon we will be together again. Until then-- best and sweetest Christmas blessings to you and Lizardmom and the whole Lizard clan!!!1

Bisous, bp
