Glitter Bird

It's time for the annual Christmas Tree tour with me, your host, Goodboy Norman Featherstone.

Woman added a new theme to the Christmas Tree this year, the "glittery bird" theme. Here is the main focus of the glitter bird grouping, "THE" Glitter Bird herself. She's a big gal with tail feathers that span no less than 4 inches. Check out all that glitter! I couldn't be more garish if I tried!

Woman rounded out the glitter bird theme with a three-pack of red glass glittery birds that clip onto the branches. She was pretty excited about these ornaments, especially since she got them for 40% off during Black Friday at Michael's.

This guy looks like he's about to catch himself a tasty bug for breakfast.

still glittery, but not as glittery as glitter bird

This one seems to be inquiring about a noise he heard down below. Perhaps it was the Tinkerbell ornament playing a trick on him.

And this one is just staring off into space wondering where his life went wrong. It's a tough life being locked in a dark box 335 days out of the year then perched atop a Christmas tree branch with hot lights burning your rear end all day and night. Poor glittery birds.

I really like these glittery birds

Here's the best ornament - it's ME with SANTA!

I'm ready to open these presents already.

Christmas is less than a week away! I'm not good at measuring time, so I keep expecting to wake up and get to open presents. It hasn't happened yet though.

Do you need a last minute gift idea? How about a donation to the local SPCA, humane society or IFAW? You could also bake some cookies, muffins or mini loaves of tasty bread like banana nut! Most everyone likes handmade gifts like baked goods, except kids. They just want TOYS TOYS TOYS!

If you're wondering what gifts are hot this year, I'll tell you what was the most popular at our Secret Santa exchange. First, there was this silver flask that everyone tried to steal. Once that was locked down, everyone wanted the 12 pack of wine glasses with the bottle of organic wine, and once that was sealed in with its owner, everyone wanted some handmade decorative bowl. People are weird, but maybe those are some good ideas for you. Good luck with your last minute shopping everyone!

    Norman, You are a goodboy for being patient and not opening those presents. My mommy won't even put any under the tree because I cannot resist ripping the paper into shreds.

    Cool birds, Norman! You looks really excited sitting in front of that tree.

    You asked about my pressies, I have not gots any pressies yet. My mom just bought me a scarf so I would look festive during the season. We gets cookies from Generation Dog a lot of the times cause I's a good boy!

    LOL! The glittery bird wondered where his life went wrong! HAHAHA!

    We agree...our favorite ornament is also the one of YOU with Santa!

    I'm going to see Santa Paws at PetSmart tomorrow and I'm so excited! I'm asking him for a talking ball and a new coat!

    What do YOU want for Christmas Norman?

    Awesome photos!!! As soon as I put my tree up I'll take photos of it, too!!

    I love the Glitter Birds! I also like to do an over all tree theme to tie things all together. This year it's a paper chain garland made with Christmas paper.

    Lame, cheep but cute.

    Heh, Norman: in those pictures of you and The People, every single time they're looking at the camera you're looking downwards. And the one time you DO look at the camera, they're looking at each other!

    Norman, around here the Pug barks his fool head off at the birds. I am glad you are more tolerant.

    I LOVE your glitter birds, Norman. You are so lucky! Due to the Evil Kitten at our house our birds had to stay packed up this year. That d@*% cat can smell a feather a mile away. She grabs them and runs through the house growling!

    Your tree is very pretty Norman! I love that glitter bird...but then I do have a "red" thing.

    I LOVED the cookies you made me. You did a great job, did Woman help you?

    Punchy - I made the brown swirly ones myself, and Woman picked them up and bagged them for me. Can you tell I made them? They're recycled!! I don't like to waste things.
