Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone!! We are headed over to some dear friends' house this evening for a traditional Christmas dinner, with all the trimmings and a "White Elephant" gift swap {which I can't wait to participate in ~ I love stuff like that}. I still haven't decided just what I want to bring as my gift. I can't bring jewelry, because that would just be way to obvious coming from me. I'm going to bring something that will be a total surprise and that everyone will want! I'll take pictures, of course, and post them here later this week. I just hope I end up with something cool and useful! I remember the worst thing I ever got for Christmas were these huge red panties that my grandmother gave me! The worst part was, I opened them in front of the whole family, including all of my cousins, and everyone just cracked up laughing. I don't know why she thought I was a size 14 when I was "age 14". They were probably even too big for her! Now that I look back on it, it was rather funny. I could have used those panties as a jumper! Hee hee ~ what's your most awful {but funny now} gift you've ever gotten?? Share here by leaving a comment. And, of course, all that leave comments will automatically be in the drawing for these gorgeous earrings:appropriately named "Starry, Starry Night" ~ they are just gorgeous!!! I know you will love them! I'm giving them as gifts to a few of my dear, dear friends, as well. Ozzy will pick the winner Sunday. Good luck!!

Well, I gotta run for now ~ I have things to prepare, gifts to wrap and snow to shovel! Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas everyone!! And thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for being so awesome and always reading my ramblings...
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

"the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so? It came without ribbons! It came without tags! "It came without packages, boxes or bags!" And he puzzled three hours, `till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. "Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!" ~ The Grinch


  1. Since I've learned to accept all gifts graciously, I've put out of my head all the past ones I didn't like (and my reaction to them, too, which was poor I am sure). Happy Holidays to you. Have fun at your Christmas party.

  2. worst gift, hmmm...probably the time I got this really ugly, decrepit, stained table runner with wedding bells cross-stitched on them, that one of my grandparents (who shall remain unnamed) picked up at a garage sale (price tag of 25 cents still attached). I have to say, I actually laughed out loud at the awfulness of it, and I didn't even have a boyfriend at the time, much less an impending wedding. Then they tried to say that they weren't WEDDING bells...just generic bells....I will never forget that! Haha...

  3. It must be something with grandparents - my grandmother gave me a half slip when I was 13 that came all the way to the floor and my sister could have gotten into it with me!!! It was the thought that counted! Merry Christmas.

  4. Can't say I've ever had a really awful gift, but I've found after 15 years of marriage that if I want something for Christmas, I'd better just get it myself.
    I hope everyone has a safe and Happy day.
    Just a note, the word verification word I have today is "porpoorp"...I like it.

  5. I love ya'll!!! I hope each and every one of you had the best Christmas ever! And now Ozzy is going to pick the winner of those awesome earrings....stay tuned and "good luck"!!
