I'm Not Done Yet

I know y'all thought I was done with the Christmas sweaters, but I'm not!! I have a couple of more. I am getting tired of them, though. I don't know how you 30 for 30 folks did it. I am missing other clothes and sweaters after a week and I'm just doing Christmas sweaters! I don't think I could ever limit myself to just 30 pieces. So my hat is off to you folks that did it!

So here is today's offering. A red Christmas sweater vest. I put it with my red, elfish Gap tee and khaki cords. It's not too awful. After the first picture, I added a a scarf. It was COLD outside!! Changed anyone's mind yet on tacky Christmas sweaters?!! No? Really? Alrighty. Moving on.

Saturday night we had our First Annual Scarborough/Tyner Christmas Extravaganza! A great time was had by all! We had a delicious dinner and presents and just fun and laughter. And we might be a little redneck. I mean, if you consider one husband teaching the kids how to play blackjack and poker while the other does a show and tell gun and knife safety course redneck.

Lise and her family gave me a beautiful sweater and tank set from Coldwater Creek. Wait til you see it. And some gloves that have the heat sensors in the thumb and pointer finger so you can wear your gloves and still use your iPhone! They are AWESOME! And Kaja gave me some Christmas socks with PENGUINS!! YAY!!  I already can't wait for next year! Can you believe that with a house full of people, we didn't get ANYONE to take a picture of us TOGETHER?! What's wrong with us?!

Have a great week, y'all!!

Jake dressed in his best sweater for the party!

This is how he started out. He was not amused. But he was cute!!


  1. I won't pretend to be a fan of the "Christmas" sweater; my mom is however, lots of applique snowmen and such. But I love the look of joy on your face, Joy, and if your sweater collection put that on your face, I am all for it. Your smile has sparkle!

  2. I looooove Christmas sweaters. I secretly wish I could wear them without my husband laughing at me. I blame the need to wear them on the teacher in me. When I was little I had this really awesome Christmas tree sweatshirt that my mother made me out of the fabric paint and ribbon. I would still wear it if I could!

    PS- LOVE the sweater on the dog. I wish I could convince my kitties to dress up. :)

    The poor puppies ;)
    I too have tons of Christmas sweaters (thanks to My Dad-in-law, and must wear one on the day we are there.
    i'll take a photo ;)
    thanks for the shot!
    If Lise finds one, i'll wait for her :)
    and DressingMommy hasn't sent one yet?

  4. Jake needs a Christmas sweater...perhaps you should take your least favorite and make one for him.

    Gloves with heated fingers...what will they think of next?

  5. I agree with Terri--Christmas sweaters for the dog--not for you, gf! You make me laugh, tho. Give them back to Santa~love Paula
