Last year, regular readers may remember I started a Christmas tree for our kitchen, bearing only food and drink-related ornaments. I do believe it has become my new favorite holiday decoration. I like that it’s a bit hard to find ornaments for the tree; if they were everywhere, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun.
A Sweetnicks reader mentioned that K-Mart had cupcake ornaments for sale. I must have breezed right past them on Black Friday without noticing (must have been the 4:30 am time!), but when the kids and I were there recently to return something, I gave it a second look, and they do! Thanks so much for the heads up! I picked up one, but here are a few more that they have available. You know, in case you want to start your very own food and drink Christmas tree in YOUR kitchen. I know you want to. Most of the ornaments below that they had were $3.99 or $4.99 each, and were 33% off. Martha Stewart used to have a line of ornaments at K-Mart, but it was conspicuously absent this year.
I saw this adorable cupcake tower in a Christmas store over the weekend. I so wanted to buy it, but was resisting the price tag. Now I’m debating about going back for it. Maybe during the after-Christmas sales. How perfect is a cupcake tower for us?
This is what the full tree looks like now. I think I need to hit the clearance sales after the holiday and upgrade to a bigger one, but for now? Lovin’ it. Would love to hear about YOUR own themed Christmas trees – delurk and tell me about it!
Had an unexplained craving for raw onions today. Had half on a sandwich at lunch, and the other half at dinner. If I didn’t know better, I’d think I was pregnant. Don’t send me e-mail asking. I’m not.
He’s really lucky that I forgot my camera at home in our dash to get to the dentist’s office on time, so a BlackBerry picture will have to do. Nick had his first cavity filled today, and was lucky enough to have both his sister *and* Payton on hand for moral support. He was brave and I don’t believe he even shed a tear. Not even when Madeline was climbing on the chair and jiggling the dentist’s hand. I do believe the dentist deserves special kudos for dealing with a scared patient and two chatty and active little girls. I do have an issue, though, with them having lollipops for patients. I mean, really?
