From my family to yours Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays! Joyeux Noel, Frohe Weihnachten, Natale Allegro, Feliz Navidad and Nollaig Shona Daoibh.
I wish you all the blessings of this season. May you enjoy much love, laughter, peace and good health as you gather with your family and friends.
To all of you who take the time to read my blog posts - thank you for the gift of your presence! I do so appreciate your readership. I have met such wonderful people while blogging. For those of you who are new here and for those of you who have recently become followers - welcome! Please do leave a comment whenever you can. I would love to meet you. I know when 'lurking', it can sometimes seem like the folks who comment all know each other quite well. Please don't let that put you off from joining in. Please note that we were all strangers at one point. You are more than welcome to share your thoughts here. I look forward to hearing from you.
As a wee gift to you all, I shall include a link to Frank Kelly's Christmas Countdown. Of all the versions of what it would be like to be given the gifts of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Mr. Kelly's is my favourite. There is only audio and it takes approximately five minutes of your time. Enjoy!
And for those of you who were reading my blog a year ago and who have great memories, you will have observed my lack of originality this year. I posted Frank Kelly's Christmas Countdown last year (and I warn you, it will probably surface in 2010). AND yes the photo is last year's too! Gasp...But in my defence I must state that we have not aged a bit in the last year, honestly, (ha ha) and getting a dog to pose while the camera timer goes beep beep isn't easy. For those who think this business of posting last year's Christmas photo is a bit of a cheat, I offer a never before seen blooper from that photo session. I am laughing like a crazy lady while the dog sits on me, practically blocking me from view and the dog has his tongue out. Enjoy and again, Merry Christmas everyone!!!
