Did I leave a comment yet or not, I can't remember?

My work buddy tells me I have the 'here after" disease . . .

you know when you go in a room and say...

what did I come in here after?

Merry Christmas, I can't wait to see what the new year brings.

Oh Debra ::sigh:: =^..^=

Just lookie at what I have discovered
here today! It's really Christmas!

So glad I need not pick a favorite photo
because I don't think I could ... Although the sweet
little girl in the vintage Christmas photo stopped
me in my tracks ... But then ...

Then the bunnies ... Oh, well ... You know me
and bumppy rabbits. Yeppers. I would never be able to decide a favorite today. All too wonderful.

Can I just come over and sit under the tree to watch?
I think you must have faeries there.
Perhaps when they are through helping you, they
might like to visit me and help decorate too?

Oh they could maybe choose my name on Friday?
Then ::flutterhop:: on over to deliver it! Yes!
Send a bunny fae to visit! ::giggle::

SOooo wonderful to see your beautiful blog today.
Now on to see what happens when I click the links
and hop over to the Gathering!

::HaPpY::Merry::Merry::
=^..^= love, zU
