Time to put the writing aside for a bit and have a little fun with the upcoming holidays. You can check out the rest of the gang participating in the  Be Jolly By Golly Blogefest!

Though room is limited this year, I've managed to find a spot to squeeze in a little Christmas Tree love.



Though summer is months away, it wouldn't be my tree without...




I was hoping to rent a real-life reindeer to help add a little authenticity to the decorations, but with the economy the way it is this was all I could afford.






Cannolis aren't typically considered a treat reserved solely for Christmastime in Italian culture . . . unless you live in my family. We're lazy, and cannolis take a LOT of work to make!  So, needless to say, they don't last long!!




And last, but not least. . .  



No one will ever be able to convince me that "A Christmas Story" isn't the best. Christmas. Movie. Ever. 


Even if Ralphie is all growed up now.

So there you have it folks! I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful time for the holidays!! (No matter what holiday you celebrate)


To all my fellow Blogfesters, can't wait to get around this week and check out your entries!!

Looks like you found room for quite a good-sized tree! HaHA, love the reindeer antlers on the doggie. Whoa--that Cannolis looks incredibly scrumptious and decadent, yeah, BABY! Thanks for stopping by my Jolly blog too, and glad I could make you laugh out loud, even though it was at work. LOL

Merry Christmas! from the Merry Christmas Carol, as you so punnily stated. Hehehe!

Lola Sharp said...

Awww....your puppy-love is adorable! (and tolerant) Love his/her hat. :)

Wow. Who knew Ralphie would turn out kinda cute. (needs to wx/tame those brows bit. But pretty blue eyes.)

Everyone was so smart and took close-ups of favorite ornaments. I wish I'd thought of that. *bad Lola*

Merry Christmas, Tracy! Let's kick some major ass in 2011!
Love,
Lola

Your dog is the cutest dog I've ever seen! It's absolutely adorable!!! I love the hat. Neither my cat nor dog would let me anywhere near them with that sort of thing.

Your tree is also very pretty and those cannolis... they look amazing!!!!!!!!

Your dog is sooo cute! My cat would have no part in dressing up for Christmas.

Cannolis are so yummy! I've never made them, but will buy them from time to time.

We will be watching A Christmas Story and eating chinese food for Christmas this year.

I don't know where to begin complimenting this post. I loved it all: the tree, the dog, the amazing cannolis, the best Christmas movie (Ralphie turned out cute) . . . and again, the cannolis look really, really good. Everything is awesome! Merry Christmas.
