Twelve Days of Christmas

When my husband and I began dating, almost 30 years ago. . . (*wow*)

I remember my first Christmas with him.

He gave me a gift earlier than I have ever gotten a Christmas gift before.

I look puzzled and asked him why he was giving me my Christmas present so early.

He then explained to me that this was our " Twelve days of Christmas " and each day he would present me with a gift.

And he did.

I have been spending every Christmas with him ever since.

Aren't you tired of that old boy yet? Send him my way! MyHero usually remembers that "Oh yeah! I need a gift for my wife!" This revelation usually happens on December 24th around 4 pm in the afternoon. You can imagine all the wonderful last minute gifts I have received. How about a monkey windchime with little monkeys streaming out her butt? Yeah...just sayin' When you get real tired of him send him my way. I'm a good cook! xo Diana

Mo, I also want to tell you how much I love your choice of the cursive type font on your blog.
Blogging is a lot like having penpals around the world. I hardly ever take the time to put a pen to paper anymore these days, so it is nice to see our words translated into a somewhat dying artform!

Yours truly,
