It is time to participate in our annual Christmas Eve festivities including everybody's favorite: The decoration and passing of "The Boot".
Doug and I were the holders of the boot over the last year and added "balls" . Disco ball ornaments to be exact. Each guest also will receive their own full sized disco ball compliments of our favorite store: Five Below! Each family has had one turn to hold the boot and return it with the decoration of choice. We contemplated "blowing up" the entire thing this year. We couldn't bring ourselves to do it without adding our balls.
However, we did not make our annual trip to the wilds of West Virginia to purchase our illegal cache of explosives. Unfortunately we fired all of our fireworks on the 4th of July. One of the advantages of living in a rural area is that we can get away with setting off impressive displays of mortars and finale combination sets before any neighbors could report us the the authorities. (Besides we always invite our closest neighbors to see the show!)
So, here is a final look at our ballsy boot before we passed it off to the next victim. Please note that our abode looks fairly tidy. (This was taken just before the evening's festivities).
We can only imagine what next year will bring.
Disclaimer: This post was written after the festivities, but the photos were taken in anticipation of the great event. So if there are some inconsistencies in tense (I am talking to you English Language Nazis) please forgive me. It is Christmas morning and I am too tired to bother with serious editing problems.
Merry Christmas Everyone! Have a ballsy New Year!
