I hadn't been to my mum's for a few days, but we went over to celebrate her birthday tonight. She's been a busy little elf!
Not sure what she's saying in this picture, but it doesn't look good for me, does it? I thought you might like to see her decorating. This woman doesn't know the meaning of "enough"! Here's a close-up of her tree, there are 40 ornaments to the square inch.
I know there's a tree under there somewhere! I didn't get a pic of her coffee table, which is a staging area for anything too heavy to hang. EVERY surface is covered. There are 3 chairs you can't sit in.
Oh look, here's a place to sit, AFTER we moved things.
This is a wreath I made for her years ago, she was gluing some loose ornaments on before we hung it.
This is my favorite ornament - she makes these out of light bulbs!
And look what she got for her birthday!!!
Just kidding. That's our friend's little girl, Arianna. Mum had a great birthday, and we ordered pizza and had cake and ice cream too. Our friend with the little girl works at Tim Horton's, and brought 2 huge bags of donuts and bagels and muffins too. Let's hope I don't get a call that she's gone into a diabetic coma! I know my brother will do his best to eat it all before she does though.
Seriously, I LOVE my mom's decorating, she's so over the top and loves Christmas SO much, she makes it even more fun. I have no clue who all the stockings are for...there's just her and my brother!
I have to show you something else. Fiona from BubzRugz sent me this photo of a quilt she finished for Christmas, but couldn't blog about. It's GORGEOUS.
Didn't she do a great job? I LOVE the colors in this!! But gee, would you look at the green in that pic? Yes, it's summer in Australia, and I for one am so jealous!
Tomorrow at midnight is our give-away for the Christmas Club, our final draw! Can you believe we've been at it all year? Remember to link up at this post if you're finishing up at the last minute! I'll see you all tomorrow night!
