I loved this, Michelle! For our Christmas Eve musical night at my aunt's and uncle's, my husband read a comedy version of the Twelve Days of Christmas by Irish comedian Frank Kelly. Here's a link to it if you'd like a laugh:

Did you really get snow this year? We got a few flurries today. They said on TV it was the first Christmas day in 19 years that it had snowed any at all here.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Ahh... lovely. :0)

We did have the first white Christmas i can remember. The first snow i can *ever* remember in this country (UK) that stayed for a week crisp and beautiful without going slushy. What a treat.

Merry December!
