Ho Ho Hoing With A Capital H!

Just a quick post to let y'all know we are all in picture perfect health and hard at work getting everything ready for the big reveal, Friday at 4:00 p.m. for our Christmas Open House!The snow is flying and things are beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Winnie & Tulula's and Sweet Pea's! With silver bells aplenty and frosty whites everywhere, y'all are in for a treat guaranteed to make your teeth hurt or at least lose your upper ones! The reindeer are running on high octane Ethyl or as we like to call it....mimosas!!
All the elfettes are swinging from the ceilings to ensure nothing is left undone or unwrapped! You know Mindy, Theresa, Daphne and Ethel...Gloria, Charisse, and Lizzie and Frannie...but do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?

Cat Daddy, the tricked out reindeer!!
We're calling in all the troops to help with the preparations including my oldest melon head and his darling girl, Graycie!
I was framed, I tell ya!
The resident trashette was working the place making sure there weren't any slackers. Everyone had to tote that barge and lift that bale with Grayzilla on the job!
So I'll close for now, but I'll be back with more snippets of Remembrance Of Christmas and full disclosure on who our guest vendors will be. You won't want to miss that one! For now, I must hurry to the Texas Pole and get back to glittering anything that doesn't move!

Graycie is so dang cute! Just let her be in charge of your booth for the Christmas sale...she can sell it out! You are so lucky to have family that helps out!


Sue said...

Love the "framed" family photos! And that smile of Graycie's. . .was a beautiful start for my morning. Thanks Graycie! Take care.

All the hard work will pay off. Let me know if you liked the pecan pie. It is an old Colonel Sander's recipe (one he made at home).

Glad you stopped by! We had our Christmas Open House Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday at the shop! I just started a new shop blog and will post and send a link when I get 'em in there. We were SWAMPED for 3 days straight. Can't convince me that things are so bad...people are tired of holding back and we musta had what they wanted! Amazing is all I can say!
Looks like all of your Elves are well trained and steppin' in when needed! :-)
Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful..from my house to yours...happy Thanksgiving!

I'm getting to where I can't work without y'all nearby. Good times yesterday and more to come this weekend. The grand girl child and senior melon head were fun to meet and visit with. See you Friday with egg nog in hand! ~Mindy
