You Know What Makes Me Happy? Christmas Cow

You Know What Makes Me Happy? Christmas Cow

Christmas Cow

I know it's early, but who can resist a Christmas Cow? He's so into his candy cane and his reindeer bells make me grin from ear to ear! I passed his likeness all around my office today and everyone's adoration of him made me super happy.

When I was 13, I made a Christmas Cow ornament out of scraps of fabric my Grandma gave to me. I glued it together really haphazardly and stuck an ornament hook through it and gave it to my dad. He absolutely hated it. So, since I was a contrary child, I hung it on the tree right besides his head. For years I made sure it was in the same spot, so he couldn't really watch tv without seeing it through the corner of his eye. He tried to get rid of it every year, but I would always find it and bring it out to it's prime spot near his head.

Does anyone else have Christmas traditions like that one?

Caileigh said she is going to buy a chocolate orange this year to "see what happens". Seems like I am carrying more than one tradition forward this year!

Also, Jay and I are exchanging advent calendars... I found this awesome one from David's Tea, isn't it amazing??
