A few years ago, some dear friends joined us for Christmas dinner….a very small get-together, since a very frail and elderly aunt joined us and we needed to keep things as simple as possible….. as we were all cooking…well….actually my husband Peter, J. and friend Cindy were finishing up with cooking and Jim and I were being….silly…. using veggies and salad ingredients to make what ended up becoming the unusual Christmas table centerpiece…. with the cooks stopping and joining the exuberant laughter, silliness and fun, too….and in the microwave?…literally, J’s cup of hot chocolate runneth over….how timely!
may all of our cups “runneth over” with…..
a celebration of
as we remember to enjoy and appreciate
these holiday moments…
whether they be Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanza, Winter Solstice,
the approach of the New Year….
May all of our cups runneth over….

What a fun post and a great idea! I may “borrow” this one day! Merry Christmas!
It was fun…with even more salad ingredient/veggies, we could have taken those potato heads even further….I highly recommend this fun endeavor… : ) …Merry Christmas to you too… : )
This made me smile, how fun and creative! 🙂 Have a Merry Christmas and wishing you continuing blessings.~
It was really fun….it kind of evolved out of…no where?….who knows where? Wishing continued blessings and a Merry Christmas to you too….. : )
I love the centerpieces! A new tradition has started;)
Merry Christmas love and may your cup runneth over and over and over and..
Once I gave up on the ridiculous role of being “a transplanted mountain/country person who tried to fit in and do everything just so in a suburban life…..” …..seriously, I tried that for years….how did a Berkeley kind of person do that???…well, I pretty much did it, but didn’t like it…not one bit….once I let go of that…and good riddance it was…. and accepted living more aligned with how I like to do things….well…look what happened…!!!…potato head centerpieces!
And, Leah, may your cup also runneth over… hugs back to you too!…Kathy
my cup is no longer half full
it runneth over (grin)
(~_~) merry christmas
Now there’s a solution to the half full vs half empty quandary…..”runneth over” it is!
That reminds me of an expression I heard a few days ago…. of realizing that life has “abundant enoughness” …. love that expression!….so perhaps the cup runneth over with “abundant enoughness”….yeh…that’s good…. : )
And a very merry christmas to you too…enjoy those little ones…
Love your Mr. Potato Heads! 😀
They were fun!
I would like to Wish you Happy Christmas and wonderful years ahead 🙂
Thank you so much… and I pass that same wish along to you and others… : )
