It was a long, but productive day yesterday. I spent the morning and part of the afternoon looking for stock for the store - success! My cousin bought me a late lunch for my birthday - that was nice. I ended up hanging out at her house, trying to get things updated via her wi-fi, until late evening. Treated myself to a coconut/chocolate malt - oh, my, that was so good!!! When I got home, Palmer gave me a big hug and stayed close by for the rest of the night. I guess she missed me.

I am still working on stock today - sometimes it takes a long time to get things ready for sale what with cleaning and researching. Big day at the store Saturday when I change displays around - it should be fun!

Be MERRY!!!

Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For I've grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder,
Grown a little sadder,
Grown a little older,
All:
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.
Mame:
Haul out the holly;
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day.
All:
Fill up the stocking,
Young Patrick:
But Auntie Man, it's one week from Thanksgiving Day now.
All:
But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
Agnes:
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
Ito:
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
All:
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For we need a little music,
Need a little laughter,
Need a little singing
Ringing through the rafter,
And we need a little snappy
"Happy ever after,"
Need a little Christmas now.
Need a little Christmas now.
One of my all time faves!!

So happy & beautiful lyrics too!!

Thanks for posting it!!

Fingers crossed!
