i can't believe this & did you know?

these sweet little ones are my dear friend's chitlins...i have known them since j. (left) was 2 & a.(right) was 4.... i met these chitlins when i met their mom during my ol' airline days many (too many!) moons ago... we would all go on trips everywhere...like in the above pic...we trekked out to boston one sunny weekend...i went for the day & they stayed the whole weekend. they were like part of my extended family...we spent a lot time together back in the day...my friend used to dub her chitlins' as "wild children" but they really were sweethearts, mischievous & also whiney at times, but overall, sweeties...i was like a big kid to them & oh how we played & had great fun! i can remember j. asking me to give him horsey-back rides & a. wanting me to watch her vast collection of disney videos>>>as if it were like yesterday... whoa, time sure does fly, y'know?...i got an email from a. yesterday & she announced that she's getting married!!!!!!!!!!! i was shocked beyond belief but thrilled for her. to me, those kids will always be the sweet chitlins i knew when they were wee like in the pics above & i cannot get over that both of them are grown now! i feel so OOOOOOOLD... over the last couple of weeks before christmas, i kept hearing on the radio, "the twelve days of christmas" meaning the 12 days leading up to christmas...well, i kept wanting to call the radio station & telling them how inaccurate that was! the twelve days of christmas actually refer to the 12 days after christmas, not before like the radio folks kept saying! read all about the history here...on the twelfth night is when i usually dismantle all the holiday decos & the tree...which i'm glad because i can still enjoy the beautiful glow & magic of our sparkly tree just a little while longer. having said that, happy 2nd day of christmas! Posted by Picasa

    That whole 12 days of Christmas misconception drives me crazy! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    P.S. Thanks for the goodies ;-)
