Kenny Rogers = The Christmas Season

In keeping in line with the Ned Lunt family tradition, we decorated our Christmas tree this past monday...

and all to the soundtrack of my childhood...

Yes. I am aware that this CD is AMAZINGLY cheesy and not necessarily that good...but I've heard it every December of my life and I dig that soulful sound of Kenny...(insert your laughter here...I really don't dig Kenny...in fact if I hear any of his other stuff I kind of die...he really is so corny and ridiculous...but I do love this CD)


My mom is about the most organized human in the world so we each have our own boxes with ornaments in them...within this box our ornaments are divided between ornaments for the tree (good looking, not tacky ornaments) and ornaments not for the tree (the ugly, usually only kept for sentimental reasons ornaments).

So apparently some of my ornaments broke in storage...this reminded me of the island of mis-fit toys on the old school Rudolph movie...

You will also notice that the ornament on the left says best grandma....when I picked it out when I was a young one I didn't realize it said that...I just thought it was a cute mouse...oh well...someday I'll be the best grandma and then it will totally be applicable...


The children getting their ornaments ready to go...


April loves this picture of herself...

and I'm not quite sure why Seth has a vampire tan in this picture....



Christmas tree decorating has never looked so good...



So April got to put the star on the tree because it is her last Christmas living at home...

She struggled...


And she was concentrating really hard...if you can tell...



And last but not least....


The sweet nectar of the gods....hot chocolate. I used my most favorite kitchen appliance for this occasion and even used my fancy hot chocolate not sold around here...


Behold the cocomotion...I love it so much.

I have a few other posts I need to update on...but I'm way tired. So don't be mad, Dale :)

Whaaaaaaaaat? Why are you calling me out?

The only things missing are the Tim Tams. Dang it! Now I want hot chocolate, but I already brushed.

Wow, your sister must love that puckered butt pic. You are ruthless. I always get excited when I see that you've posted because you are comic relief for me. I miss you!

I feel like I'm the only one loyal to Kenny. I would never rag on him inside parenthesis after claiming to like him. For shame.

Deanna said...

Laura...I would place money on it that you have never listened to any of Kenny's other stuff...or better yet, I'll send you some of his other stuff and you can tell me if it's any better than laughing at...just sayin hehehe
