Angel on top of a tree is so nice. I have a waterford ornament and my kids keep asking...why don't we have an angel?

Oh Miss La Petit, we are so with you on the blowups on the lawn...! As TSU (The Spousal Unit) always says upon seeing a certain inflatable..."You know, nothing says Christmas to me like Sponge Bob Square Pants."

Hope the rest of your week is splendid!
