I know I have been showing you pictures of my Christmas trees, but we here in the Martin house have another decoration I thought I would share. Just when you thought we were super normal and boring, I show you a photo of this:
Yes, a genuine "Major Award"! Can this be real you ask? Is that really in the front window of this woman's home? Yep, and yep.
In case you haven't guessed, we are fans of the movie A Christmas Story. It was filmed partially in Cleveland ( when I was in high school, my marching band was invited for the filming of the downtown parade scene. They are even listed in the credits.) and the house used in the filming is now a museum dedicated to the movie.
Have I been to see the house? Where do you think the Leg Lamp came from???
Actually, my husband got it for me for my birthday one year...It comes in a box marked "Fragile" and has a Major Award certificate too. Very cute... Don't most women get jewelery or perfume for their birthdays though?
Not sure I want to know what that says about us!
Merry Christmas...And remember, "Don't shoot yer eye out!"
My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.
