Oh Crikey, Another Photo-Op

Yeah, yeah, I know it's pushing on into January - I have the extra year on my age to show for it (Whoops! did I just admit I had a birthday?), but I just couldn't resist putting up a few pics of what we did over the holidays, because who doesn't love to look at yet more holiday photos?
The mushroom fairy my sister made, with her very own mushroom!
The kids are getting big enough to wonder why the windows are dark in this picture. Surely it isn't that Mom was up when Santa got here? I love the way the tree glows with the luminescence of 9 million lights (an exaggeration, but not by much!)
The guys were spying on the girls up the street, and the Bohemian made his hat fit the job. He cracks me up the way he can rig just about anything. Oh and the fact that he's a hamosaurus too - look at that mug!
The undercover agents but on their bad-assed personas.
The new Mushoonga swords are awesome to play with! Can you almost hear the lightsaber noises I'm making?
"And I see your Schwartz is as big as mine!"Yeah, I let them watch Spaceballs recently. I like to think of it as giving them a much-needed lesson in machismo, as well as stand-up material.
And while the guys get a little exercise, taking out all their aggressions on each other, Mom makes yet another batch of cookies! (I think I must have made more than 12 batches of different cookies over the holidays - god knows, my gut would corroborate that.)"I'm going to push myself away from the bourgeoisie table of life and say, 'No more jello (or cookies for that matter) for me, Mom!' "- Peggy Sue Got Married)

Can I just say that I loathe the color of my kitchen? When we finally get around to re-doing it, about the time the floor falls in, or the countertop chips even further off, I'm going to eradicate every drop of that heinous dusty rose/maroon the previous owners chose. The 1980s color scheme of federal blue and dusty rose makes the orange and avocado green of the 1970s, or the pink and turquoise of the 1950s look downright chic and savvy.

I am SO jealous of those mushroom lights!! Where'd you get them? (I meant to ask at Solstice but I was slightly distracted...okay flipping out but that's beside the point.) Love the Spaceballs shot, Nate tells me there is now a cartoon with Mel Brooks?

It's not "Oh Crikey", it's "Oh Yay!".

Great photos. Your tree's beautiful and I love the Bohemian's hat. Dusty rose is coming back... I think.

Oh I know a Small Boy who would have loved to be in with that lightsabre battle. He got Nerf guns for Christmas. And the camouflage hat! LOVE kids with initiative and creativity :-)
As for bright orange and avocado green...the only reason it's better than navy and rose is that there is a 70s retro fashion thing going on nowadays :-D. In another 10 years your kitchen will be back in fashion.
(At least you don't have bunches of grapes on your tiles like we do)

All I'm saying is it CAN'T be any worse than my kitchen, what with the peeling ceiling and all..... I need to date a contractor.
