So Mimi & Pop (my parents) always send us some great stuff to add to our Christmas decor each year. However, we usually only open it on Christmas morning so we only get to enjoy these things for a few days before it’s time to pack up the decorations again. This year though mom sent over a TON of presents marked “Open Early” so we got to have a little post Thanksgiving presentpalooza. It was awesome! Sydney got a Waterford Angle ornament to add to her collection, a Jim Shore Santa ornament for our Santa tree, tons of books, bubble bath, Christmas PJs, candy kits, and all sorts of other fun stuff to enjoy during Christmas. Anita unwrapped several pieces of silver mercury glass that were really pretty – candle sticks, a pedestal bowl, candles to go with, a flickering LED candle, and a bunch of ornaments for her ‘rustica’ tree. I got an AWESOME pair of Santa boots, some Christmas champaign flutes (for our Christmas Eve get together – we’ve been saving our last 6 bottles and I don’t think we’re going to have more ready in time), a really awesome Waterford ball (in their New Year’s Ball collection) for the tree, a Santa candle, and a whole bunch more. Christmas in November rocks!
