Show & Tell Friday - Holiday Edition


My mom and I had a tradition of going to Cracker Barrel for breakfast once the weather turned cool. It would put in the Christmas spirit. The fire was usually going, the pancakes were delicious and the little shop was always decorated so nice for the holidays. I thought they had some of the cutest ornaments. Most of these I picked up after Christmas on clearance. The cookie Christas tree is one I bought for Amy and the sock monkey is one I bought for Emily. (She was so intrigued by sock monkeys one year.) Unfortunately our Cracker Barrel closed up about 2 years ago and I miss our tradition!
The following is my Cracker Barrel collection:

Those are the cutest ornaments. I love everyone of them. Suddenly I feel like going out to breakfast, for pancakes. The power of suggestion. I don't think Cracker Barrel restaurants were located in my area, but pancakes sound good about now.

I like all of those ornaments, especially the sock monkey one. I remember seeing those, wish I had bought one. My mother used to make sock monkeys, it would have been a good little memento.

Love the baby picture on your banner!

Omigosh, how I LOVE the sock monkey ornament!!! That is too precious! Love all your other ornaments as well...we don't have a Cracker Barrel here in Canada but when my mom would go spend the winters in Florida, she would always stop in one of them and get me a Christmas ornament:-) Go to this site to add music to your blog...http://www.projectplaylist.com/

OH MY GOODNESS! A Cracker Barrel closed. That's a crime. I love CB--so sorry you lost yours!

The ornaments are adorable!

BTW--Don't let Barb at Chelsea Morning see that sock monkey ornament. I'm sure Cameron would love it!
