Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree

For today’s Throwback Thursday, I present to you a piece of art I made in kindergarten.  I have absolutely NO IDEA what those two tall, purple presents are on each side.  (Golf clubs, perhaps?)  Have a Merry Christmas, friends!

You want to talk?  Tell me, what are you doing today?  Are you with family or friends?  Is there anything special on the menu?

  1. I do rather like the winged seahorse upon the tree young Rachel! We have just returned from a walk along the beach. Not a cloud in the sky although ear achingly freezing! Have a great day and I shall return to blogging very soon now!

    • LOL! That’s funny… That bit of yarn does indeed look like a winged seahorse, doesn’t it? Sounds like you needed earmuffs! Did the baby come yet? Did Shirl love her shoes? What did she get you? I can’t wait for your return! And Carruthers’! 😀

      • Still no baby – waiting for more news today. They were going to induce on Christmas Day but didn’t for reasons I don’t know at the moment. And yes – apart from the fact that I wouldn’t wear them in public – earmuffs are a requirement as it is so very, very cold and windy. I think the whole of the UK is covered in snow today save for the little corner we live in.

      • No earmuffs for you? There must be a story there! At least you can wrap yourself in bubble wrap! Has the packing commenced yet? I hope I see baby photos soon! 😀 Stay warm, my friend! 🙂

    • Thank you! I was and am sick, so I’m late returning the sentiment. 😦 I hope yours was amazing and the kiddos are still enjoying their time off school. 🙂 Oh, and that you haven’t been bombarded with patients seeking painkillers!

  2. Maybe they’re ghost hovering over the tree? We’ve opened gifts and are hanging out at home for a while before heading to my sister’s for dinner there. It’s a small feast with ham, mashed potatoes and a few sides. We had a big dinner with the in-laws last night and still have a huge family gathering for my husbands side of the family on Saturday.

    Merry Christmas, Rachel. Hope your day is over filled with joy!

    • Actually it’s a miracle that I still have it…My Grandma wasn’t much on sentiment and I’m shocked she didn’t throw it away. 🙂 Thank you and I hope yours was wonderful! (I woke up sick. Still am. 😦 )

    • LOL! Excellent answer! I confess, when I looked at this and thought of golf clubs, I thought of you. 🙂 I hope this week I’ll get to hear more about your Christmas with the wife and the kids’ visits. And I wish you the most amazing 2015! ❤

  3. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I thought the purple objects were people. Both daughters and our daughter-in-law were here. We saw my family on Christmas Eve, and we’re seeing my husband’s family today. We had our usual Christmas cheese fondue dinner–along with some warm spiced wine–and then played a game.

    • Thank you! I actually woke up sick on Christmas morning and am no better yet. My doctor was closed today so I have to wait until Monday. Your day sounds amazing. Are the daughters still there for a while? I hope you got lots of photos of all three of them. 🙂 Your dinner sounds yummy. What game did you play? I wish you an amazing and blessed New Year! ❤

  4. Thanks, Rachel. I hope you’re feeling better before Monday. I forget the name of the game we played. It was something that my older daughter and her wife brought. Then we played a different one last night. I am not really into games, as you can probably tell. 🙂 Younger daughter just left, and the other two are leaving in a little while. I’ll be doing a “catch-up” holiday blog post soon.
