Peeps invade Christmas

Marshmallow Peeps have now invaded Christmas in the misshapen forms of a snowman and a Christmas tree.  I think Peeps are like Candy Corn.  They need to be in the right season for me to eat them.  While I might tolerate a Chick Peep or two at Easter, they do nothing for me during the holiday season.

Oh, and if you click the Peeps link, turn down the volume of your computer to avoid the peppy Peep music on their website.

Buy your Christmas tree at Findlay Market

Just bought my Christmas tree at Findlay Market.  Nothing like being around a lot of Christmas trees to get you into the holiday spirit.   Prices are good, the volunteers are very friendly and helpful and it’s for a good cause.

From the Findlay Market website:
