These are a Few of My Favorite Things

Julie Andrews sang a beautiful song in the Sound of Music of little things that make her happy. It's so appropriate that this song is associated with Christmas with all the wonderfully winter favorites sprinkled throughout the song!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Speaking of "brown paper packages..."

All the ladies that were kind enough to post pictures of themselves or send them to me, you will be getting a special surprise in the mail soon from Karianne and me (Kelly). It's coming through the US Post Office. I'm not quite sure if it will make it in time for Christmas, but I should think it will make it before the beginning of the new year. So be on the look out!

Sending you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
