Yeah, that one.
Well, for starters, it is still there. Apparently, I am too busy blogging about it to take it down. And then, the other night, while I was taking pictures of Rachel modeling my Nurmilintu shawl, I noticed that there was a chain hanging above the dining room doors. Hey, that's understandable, I thought. It's way high up and out of the way.
|Who would even look up there, amirite?|
So tonight I was taking that picture of it there to share with all of you, when Susie said, "What are you doing?"
"I'm taking a picture of that paper chain. I thought they were all gone, but I missed one."
"But there's more," Susie said.
"What? No, there isn't."
"Mommy, turn around."
|Note the 2 pieces of stolen wood propped decoratively on our mantel|
Danged if she wasn't right - there was a HUGE chain stretching across the entrance of the den. I must walk under that thing 50 times a day on my way to the computer.
"Shoot," I said, aiming my camera (see what I did there?) at the offending decoration, "I thought they were all gone!"
By this time, I kid you not, Susie was rolling on the floor and screeching with laughter. "Look at the windows, Mommy! The windows!"
|Feels like a horror movie - the Christmas that wouldn't DIE|
Double dang. These living room windows are in my direct line of sight every single time I walk in the front door. My only defense is that all of these are hung out of my reach, so it's hard for me to take them down. Although that wouldn't explain why I don't even SEE them, right? Yikes.
What else am I missing, I wonder...
