I'm so confused!
I don't know what holiday it is.
At least I know it's Friday.
Yea for Mrs. 4444 and yea for FRIDAY FRAGMENTS!

Anyway -
I'm holiday conflicted.
After glitterizing the corn for my Thanksgiving table decor,
I started hauling out the Christmas Village.

* The other day,
I was in line buying something and I almost wrote "July" on my check.
But out of the corner of my eye,
I saw someone in a Halloween costume.
I did a double take.
It wasn't a costume.
It was an old wrinkled Rastafarian.
He was 75 with dreads.
It was Jimi Hendrix come back from the dead.
See why I'm confused?
People lookin like it's Halloween all year!

*Should I iron the Thanksgiving tablecloths and set the table,
or should I deck the halls?
Should I plan my Thanksgiving menu,
or should I change all the sheets for the impending arrival of guests?
Should I make a shopping list
or just sit around reading and eating the platter of Christmas cookies on my counter?
So many decisions!

* Have you seen the new Harry Potter?
Come on!
It's been out for 8 hours!
What are you waiting for?

* We DID NOT go see it at midnight.
We will see it as a family over the Thanksgving holdiay.
Like THAT won't add to my confusion -
a scary movie about witches at Thanksgiving.

* My niece is an "over the top" Harry Potter fan.
I received a text message from her that "someone" was at my house in a cloak
and they were taping signs on my door.
I opened my door and found this:
 It's my nephew!  Look at that face!  HOW could you call him Undesirable?
That's it!  I'm taking him away from his mean, mean family!

* Guess what I did yesterday!
Not blog!
My back is KILLING me.
I spent the ENTIRE day setting up this:

Well, back to the chore list!
Have a great weekend!

That's quite a Christmas village!
I can understand your confusion about the holidays, that's funny!
I love the glitter corn.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family all home together!

Love your village! I have a big one too but I am running out of room. I feel bad for Thankgiving but I'm already sneaking out a few Christmas decorations. :)

jMr Chunkers looks very dangerous but Oh! so cute.I miss him.
I have to add not only what holiday is it??? But what month and day of the week is it?

Ma'am, step away from the Christmas Village. You've already had too much excitement.

I'm decorating this weekend. I don't care what the calendar says.

Jene said...

Wow, I'm impressed with your setup! I'm also impressed that you have the willpower to wait to see HP7. It's killing me that I didn't get to see it at midnight. We have tickets for a 7:30 showing and I'm counting down the minutes!

Happy Friday :)

We're seeing Harry Potter tomorrow. Normally we would wait until the crowds had subsided, but our boys wanted to spend the entire day at a chess tournament. We said, "What if we take you to Harry Potter instead?" It was the lesser of two evils.

LOL! I love your post. Totally had me laughing.

It just seems like everything is coming at us at warp speed this year. I just want it to SLOW DOWN.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the comment you left.

I am embarassed to say that the Halloween decorations are still up outside. Care you make a little trek to Boston and help me sort out my Holidays?

BTW, Love your village. I am envious of your ability to keep breakables in one piece. :)

Holy cow, that is quite the little Village going on, my back would be hurting too!

I think the time just goes so fast in general it is hard for me to keep up with anything. I can hardly believe it's almost 2011. Crazy!

Oh my stars and garters Gina look at those Christmas houses... That is amazing... And beautiful!

Have a great weekend... I want to see HP7... or is it 71/2, who knows?

That village is beyond awesome!!!! That's the one thing that we have here in Canada - our Thanksgiving is in October, so it is far enough away from Christmas to lessen the confusion - with Halloween in the middle there is a clear distinction.

Too funny about the Post halloween Hendrix sighting :)!

The village looks beautiful!!! One child doesn't want to see Christmas up until after Thanksgiving. I'm sneaking some things up anyway.
