Xmas 2008

Here is my Christmas letter that I wanted to share with you all in December, but that didn't happen. It is just too good not to share. Haha, why don't I just pat myself on the back. Here is the picture that I did not use, but could of, had I thought of taking it in June. Enjoy!

‘Living on the Elbow of Cape Cod’
To the tune of ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’

December’s here, can you hear me?
Grab a cookie and some hot tea.
Hear about the year,
Crazy will be clear,
Living on the elbow of Cape Cod.

Gone away is our money,
Two in braces, not so funny,
8 horses in our yard,
Mucking stalls not hard,
Living on the elbow of Cape Cod.

In November, we went to see the Mouse,
2 kids, 4 parks, 5 days, tired feet!
We said, “Exchange girl?”
Yes, in August.
Clarisse came from Marseilles
It sure was neat!

At the barn, you’ll find K......eeee,
Jumps and rides like a banshee.
So great at hip hop,
Soccer, loves to shop,
Living on the elbow of Cape Cod.

Our B is jumping rope on the school team,
Swimming at the Y and playing soccer,
Singing with the chorus, liking ice-cream,
Loving school and friends, she’s a talker.

Barn or boat, that’s where DH is,
Horses and fish, that’s his biz.
He learned how to jump,
Without going thump.
Living on the elbow of Cape Cod.

I was elected, to the school board,
Vice Pres. of the W.O.F.F. board,
Snapping photos at weddings, wishing you blessings,
Living on the elbow of Cape Cod!!!

Maybe next year I'll make the cards for both of us and you can compose our letters? hee hee

We can start working on it all in the hotel at BlogHer.

Wow - that has to be one of the best holiday letters I've ever read. You have some real talent!

I was as shocked as anybody that things started moving so fast, but I doubt there are any builders that operate that way!

That far surpasses what I sent out, but I'll still read your blog anyway! Happy blogging anniversary, Sue. I'm glad I found you.
