Finally this was his year. I cleaned him up, removed the crayon debris and with the help of the multi surface paint made by Martha he is all spiffed up!
I couldn't do anything about the critter hole... He just has to keep his bum to the "fire" and pretend it melted off!
Pumpkinbutt has 2 elves (EOTS DIY) that visit him every year before Christmas named Glupert and Bumpkins. I thought I would share a few of their shenanigans this year:
They flew his paper space ships from the ceiling fan.
They roasted marshmallows in front of the cardboard fireplace.
They brought us doughnuts (along with mini doughnuts for themselves) for Christmas morning.

Pumpkinbutt picked the Christmas theme this year. And he picked Alterna-Emo-Goth Bands....Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure.....
So... we went with it. The Mr. happened to find this perfect Christmas Winter pic of The Cure building a snowman.
I made the wreath by wrapping 3 strands of garland around a wire frame and attaching white pom poms and images.
I was inspired a bit by a wreath I saw at Target:
And, yes, you may have noticed...We do live in the Old Grandview Place. Just don't throw rocks through our windows please!

alone or in pairs, and makes a slinkity sound? A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing! Everyone knows it's Slinky! It's Slinky, it's Slinky, it's fun, it's a wonderful toy! It's Slinky, it's Slinky, it's fun, it's a wonderful toy! It's fun for a girl or a boy!
I had no idea there was a variety of slinky toys other than the spring deal it's self and Slinky the dog.

It comes with 12 different designs of cookie pressing fun to be had. Bar, star, daisy, snowflake, club, heart, diamond, spade, tree, butterfly, scottie dog, and a camel. Yes, a camel. You got me, camels must have been popular in the 1960's.
We decorated them all crazy like and then scarfed them while writing out Christmas cards.
Here is the basic Spritz recipe if you happen to have a Cookie press sans recipe booklet :

Use Scotch Tape for those "Odd-Shaped" packages....Last year everyone's least favorite Grandma got the bottom section to this gift. This year she gets the lid. Everyone hopes it's her last Christmas and are not ashamed to say it with a coffin! If she lasts till next year maybe she will get a back hoe to get started on digging the hole.
