Christmas in July 2013 - Days Four and Five

It was a quiet, lazy Fourth of July yesterday with a little CIJ activity.  We all watched Christmas Vacation which never fails to make everyone chuckle.

I noticed that there is a Christmas Vacation ornament available at Hallmark this year so I went to a trusty source for past Hallmark releases to see if I could find Eddie's RV.  I thought it would make a great stocking stuffer for Vic, as he's always talking about wanting to rent an RV.

Imagine my surprise (well, ok, my shock!) when I found out that this 2009 ornament is either so rare or so incredibly popular that it currently retails for over $400!  I'm rethinking that stocking stuffer idea!

The only other CIJ task I completed yesterday was to cut out the felt pieces for my Christmas Pudding ornament.  It's a bit difficult to try to get any CIJ work done with Vic at home so I doubt I'll get much of anything done today.  Sophia and I have hair appointments and I have a few things to pick up here and there - a card for a baby shower tomorrow and a gift for a baby dedication on Sunday.

See you all next week!

  1. One of my favorite Christmas movies! It usually kicks off my Christmas season. Didn't think of looking up the ornaments... but at $400 I think I'll skip...
