Where Whine Meets Wine

My 12 Days of Christmas

on December 21, 2011

The other night as I was counting down the hours until our house filled with guests, my hubbyman was out running around doing some Christmas shopping with his brother. (I should note that he did take Littlest with him and was doing so because we were trying to surprise the kids with the arrival of their cousin. Seeing their uncle seemed like  it might give away that surprise, so hubby went out and about while I stayed home and finished preparations.) While I was running around  like a chicken  with my head cut off, I found myself singing my own version of “The 12 Days of Christmas.”  And I’ve continuously had it in my head since, so I thought I would share. I hope you enjoy them, or at least can find the humor in it.
