So, I lied.

Yesterday wasn't my last pre-holidays post.


But I was so excited by the best $2 I ever spent on Christmas decorating, that I had to post.   Inspired by a red and white clothesline (I thought it look like candy cane) that I  found at the dollar store, I grabbed some clothespins (one more dollar) and leftover ornaments and went to town...





I made the best of that awful rail on the top of my kitchen cabinets that I still haven't gotten the nerve to rip down while John's at work.  Then I tacked some of the line around a doorframe and  clipped our Christmas cards and other random goodies on it.  Cute and cheap! 


Oh, and I forgot to tell you that Shaye is honoring Hanukkah this year with paper candles she colored at school...




She has informed me that she is also going to mark the days of Kwanzaa this year too.





And I forgot to post the picture of the littles' visit with Santa this year... 




He got a laugh from the "CASH" written on Mackenna's list.


And I never posted the littles' school pictures from this Fall...







Whew.  I feel better now.  All caught up.



NOW  I can head off to celebrate. 


See you all after Christmas!

What a cute idea for your ornaments! We broke down and bought a second (small) tree because we have so many ornaments.

Your girls are beautiful, I love how you listed your blog on your card!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a wonderful Christmas!

CUTE! I'm a sucker for anything that uses clothes pins...except for drying clothes. Just say no to crunchy towels.

Happy Holidays!!

The girls are so cute! Love the Santa pic. And how great that Shaye has gotten all of this exposure to different holiday customs and wants to honor them. :)

Love the clothesline idea! I'm always stumped for how to display our cards and that's a great solution.
