    Dear Karen ~ Cuddles ~ Cheez Whiz ~ Josephine ~ & Mabel,

    Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Happy New Year.

    I didn’t forget about the ‘swing.’ I just have to call the company direct because I was unable to use a Canadian address in the on-line order form.

    Hugs ~ Judy

    • Karen says:

      Hi Judy! Please don’t go to any bother! I’m sure it would be fun to try but I don’t want it to become a “thing” for you. I’d love it … but don’t want to cause a thing. 🙂 ~ karen!

  46. marilyn says:

  48. Dale says:

    So if Cuddles, Cheez Whiz, Josephine, & Mabel, are the four calling birds, that means you Karen must be the partridge in a pear tree.

    Merry Christmas to all,
    and to all a goodnight!
    Happy New Year as well.
    Dale in Davenport

    Ho, Ho, Ho – we finally got snow. A truckload mind you, but hey! we got snow!
    Now I’m ready to start my Christmas baking… I always shush around the kitchen to Gloria Estefan but this year I chose Raul Malo (from the Mavericks) ‘Marshmallow World and Other Holiday Favorites’. I highly recommend it, even if it’s not Christmas anymore.
    Thanks for sharing pics of your gorgeous girls. They are the sweetest looking girls 🙂
    I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Fun-Filled New Year.
    Now, go forth, start early and enjoy!
