On the Twelfth day of Christmas...

This is the last day of 12 very memorable days for us. We have thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful addition to this special time of the year; the celebration of the birth of our Savior. With each day a note came telling what each day means. We have learned that this Christmas song has a message that we were not aware of. We have been puzzled as to who has give us this wonderful gift. As we opened the 12 'drums' they each reviled gifts; socks, a tie for my husband, earrings, popcorn, Stephens mulled cider mix, chocolates, toffee, and the second to the last one we opened was a card tied with a ribbon. As we untied the card 'Mom and Dad' was written on the envelope. I have to admit we started to cry like babies! It just so happens that our own son and his beautiful wife have been driving 30 minutes, one way, to bring the '12 Days of Christmas' to us! We are ever grateful to them and their unselfish gift of time and talent. You kids are the best! These are handmade and hand decorated 'drums'.
This will be a year to be remembered. May you all enjoy a memorable and lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
