Pirate Ornaments, and Funny British Crowns!

As promised Miss Jenny...I pulled a few pictures from last year's Christmas Celebration at my house! Ever since I can remember, it has been a tradition in our house, to wear these paper crowns at Christmas! They come from Christmas Crackers, and no you don't eat them! It's a fun game where you pull the paper cracker, and toys, crowns, and candy fall out of them. Who ever gets the bigger half of the cracker....gets the goodies inside! A long standing British Tradition! Enjoy!

My sister contemplates why on earth she agreed to come to the party!

Some of my family gets "groovy" with the hats! (Others are less than thrilled to wear them)



Now for something COMPLETELY Different!

A few weeks ago, I bought this ornament from Kohl's Dept. Store! I love it! Once my tree goes up next weekend....he will be "hanging" out there for everyone to enjoy! I just hope that he doesn't run out of battery power! Hey Minxie.....I think he would be a great addition to your tree this year!!!

Turn up your sound to get the whole Sparrow Experience!!! LOL

Hey Vix,

That ornament is awesome! I got a different one last year, but it didn't have sound!!! I'll have to get a few for the Jack Sparrow lovers on my list! (And there are several...)

Hope all is going well with you and hope you have a great Thanksgiving...sorry I've just been a lurker lately, not time for bloggin'!

Take care and maybe we could meet for drinks over the holidays????
*You know, go see a trailer together in the theaters or something! haha
