You'll shoot your eye out...


Ok... for those of you who do not know... I am obsessed with the movie "A Christmas Story". Like when it comes on for 24 hours.. I literally catch at least 18 hours of that. I can recite every line. People hate watching this movie with me. Hate it. I am saying the lines right along with Ralphie! So... with this knowledge in mind... my sweet Momma bought all the fixings at Wally World for this tree. I had no idea she was going to do this. When I got home... she had completed this masterpiece... minus the gold tinsle (not quite sure how to spell that)... which she saved for me... because i love throwing things :) 

This is the tree skirt... love it.


The star on the top looks sooo much like the one in the movie... 

Ok.. I tried to get some good ones of the ornaments.. but my camera is being stupid. But as you can see.. there is Red Rider BB Gun ornament. There are also ones of the leg lamp (that light up), the fragile box the lamp was delivered in, and the radio where Ralphie listened to the radio program. Also.... there are a few mini lunch boxes... one of which has a picture of Flick with his tongue stuck to the pole outside of school! Love it!!!


This is Ralphie in his Pink Bunny costume his Aunt sent him.

This is the leg lamp lit up. There are 2 strands of them on the tree. The tassles are even real! :)

I am in love with this tree. I think when I move out and get my own house to decorate for Christmas, that this will be my main tree. Haha.. no really. I want it to be. :)

A Christmas Story may be the greatest single Christmas movie ever. The only competition is It's A Wonderful Life. Definitely blows all the newer Christmas movies out of the water.

Um, we have 5 A Christmas Story ornaments on our main tree. Our boys call it "Ralphie." I don't think they know the real name of the movie. Just this morning when I was getting Griffin dressed for church, he stuck both of his arms straight out and made himself into the letter t and whined, "I can't put my arms down." I laughed a little, then said, "Griffin, you're not Randy. Put your arms down now." Inside, I was proud of him. :) A whole tree...that is the coolest thing. LOVE IT!

I wonder if those Old folks new what they were doing or they were just doing what Mr. Choir Director said. I think my favorite part is when they start taking off the robes...
