I said YES PLEASE. It was less about me falling in love and more about not being able to pass up a smashing deal. Ninety percent off is almost 100% which would be FREE. So practically free, is what he was. Consider me an official owl fan.

Plus, I wouldn't have to look at him everyday. He couldn't stay all stained glassy and spooky eyed though, so he got a coat of spray paint.
Much better. And even better still with a Santa hat, because what isn't?

He seems to be fitting in quite well, and doesn't mind the cotton ball snow or tacky Q-Tip snowflakes (asterisks?) one bit.
In other news, my mama is flying in tonight and I can hardly wait. She's been warned that I've got big plans for getting our craft on, and I'm even taking some time off of work so I can do important things like take naps while she's busy taking the kids to movies I refuse to sit through (I'm looking at you, Happy Feet 2). What I won't be doing? Cleaning.
Oh yeah - and blogging until the new year. So from our family to yours: Have a Very Happy Holiday.
(Yes, that's a rhino in the "manger." Just because it wasn't mentioned in the Old Testament doesn't mean it didn't happen.)
P.S Here's a little something to jingle your bells....Merry Christmas.
