Running with Dr. Seuss...

My 2 favorite parts of Christmas are 1:  putting the tree up and 2: taking the tree down.  That sounds weird, but by the end of the Christmas season, I just want my house back - no decorations, no pine needles.  When it's done, it's done. 

Our tree this year was more "Seussical" than anything.  Not only was our star a "tad" askew, but we had creatures inhabiting our tree. 

So, here's my take on a little "Green Eggs and Ham" for Christmas!

Cats in the Tree

Cats in the tree, Cats in the tree
What do I see?  There are cats in the tree!
Should there be cats in the tree?
Oh my, oh me, where should they be? 

Cat in the wash, cat in the wash,
Oh my gosh, there's a cat in the wash?
In the wash, he should not be,
Well, at least he's not in the tree!

Cat in the sink, cat in the sink,
I need a drink, there's a cat in my sink.
Not in the wash, not in the tree,
Where oh where should this cat be?

Cat in my bed, cat in my bed,
I'm out of my head, there's a cat in my bed!
Not in the sink, not in the tree,
Let me think, where should he be?
Cat on the loo, cat on the loo,
I don't know who, put the cat on the loo!
In the wash, in the tree
Can someone see where this cat should be?
At last I see, where this cat should be,
Not in the wash, not in the tree,
But, sleeping with
My sweet Baby!

Hope you had a wonderful, blessed Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by today!

P.S.  All of the cat pictures were taken by Baby Boy and Baby Girl and were not discovered by me till I downloaded my photos!

Running (still) with Gratitude (part 5)

I got a little behind on my gratitude posts so...here's my last one (we'll just pretend it's still November).

I'm eternally thankful for my dear friends the Wine Gurus!  They are, of course, responsible for the more than 40 bottles of red wine sitting in our "wine cellar".  However, they are also responsible for the very grand times we have together at our wine dinners and out of town excursions!  Who else, but the Wine Gurus, would say "Yes" to a dish of fried bone marrow

 Although I must admit that wine was consumed before, during, and after the taste of fried bone marrow, which was actually not bad.  I'm sure that the famous chef from whom I copied the recipe makes it so much better than I, but hey, we ate it and survived!

So, here's to you, my wonderful friends, I love you, I'm thankful for you both (but Hubby is especially thankful for Mr. Wine Guru), and I look forward to many more dinners together!

Thanks for stopping by today!
