For today’s post, I wanted to share a couple of random things we’ve spotted this Christmas season, and which I thought were kind of amusing. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen some (or all) of these pics, but keep reading to get the full longer-winded story!
It all started when we were browsing around Target last weekend, and saw a shelf of polar bear figurines — just some nice wintery home decor. But then Joe noticed that if you look at their faces, they kind of look suspiciously like squirrels:
I was entertained enough to snap this picture — they totally look like squirrels, right? And from there it became sort of a game looking for more silly Christmas things.
Shortly afterward, in the lights section, we spotted a string of lights that look like Yoda from Star Wars with little Santa Claus hats:
And not far away was this lighted tinsel pig — made up of a wire frame covered in shiny pink tinsel lit up from the inside, and also wearing a Santa Claus hat:
And amongst a slew of other novelty ornaments, there was this one of Animal, one of Lillian’s favorite muppets (right behind Beaker and Swedish Chef, which she calls “Meep” and “Bork” respectively) — also wearing a Santa Claus hat:
And as proof that I have the decorating impulses of a two-year-old, I’ll confess that the muppet ornament may have found its way onto our Christmas tree.
Speaking of which, our tree is actually lit up and fully decorated as of yesterday! Only two weeks after getting it from the Christmas tree farm, haha. There are a few things we did differently with this year’s tree compared to the last two years, and the photo above gives a little sneak peek — stay tuned for all the pics and details, hopefully in the next few days!
In the meantime, have you guys seen any silly Christmas things this season? A year or two back, we spotted a car that had homemade-looking antlers attached to the roof and a big red Rudolph nose in front, which is a nice little reminder that the possibilities go beyond silly products for sale at the store!
