A Super Star Tree

Chipmunks with cheeks full of roasted chestnuts, you are in for a treat – a guest post from Babs, the very woman who gave ALL OF THIS (i.e., me) life!

You’ll soon see how the [shamelessness] apple doesn’t fall far from the [guilty pleasure Christmas] tree.

(Click on any of the pictures to enlarge.)

So, for years my (our) guilty pleasure has been to find someone/thing worthy of the most high honor of being our Christmas Tree Topper (the ‘star on top’). It started with Britney in her red unitard, then swoon-worthy Justin Timberlake, and another year it was NSYNCer, Joey Fatone. In 2009, it was sparkly Edward Cullen, and last year, the singing Bieb himself. Oh, baby.
But this year, to honor your blog, our angel is a… chipmunk!
Decked out in huge wings, a starry halo, and yes, her own version of a slap bracelet (it’s Second Husband!).

Merry Christmas!

-Babs

Isn’t that magical? (And yes, she adds the wings and halos herself!) You rock, Babs! By the way, for those of you who requested GoGuiltyPleasures slap bracelets before Monday, you should have them by tomorrow! For those of you who haven’t requested slap bracelets, what are you waiting for?? I’ve got one with your name on it (or, you know, 200 with my blog name on it)! Just email your address to me at JKSchnedeker@yahoo.com.

Happy Slapping! …Er, you know what I mean.

My Guilty Pleasure Christmas Tree

Cheery chipmunks, I got my Christmas tree this weekend! Huzzah!

We went to one of the three Christmas tree farms near our house in western Jersey; this one was a self-serve farm, so we made good use of our chainsaw and lived to tell the tale got an amazing deal.

Peppermeister putting on his best Grinch face.

I busted out my favorite Christmas CD, John Denver and the Muppets, while I decorated (a long-honored tradition).

Of course, no tree of mine is complete without animals dressed as other animals.

"F my life."

And animals dressed as food:

"Eat me."

Or homemade ornaments featuring Uncle Jesse in his Christmas sweater:

"My mother needs a hobby."

And there was only one casualty.

Ah well. This one was kind of ugly anyway.

Even Uncle Jesse got in on the fun.

Have a very doodle-y Christmas!

How are your holiday plans coming along?
