She Was Supposed to be on the Naughty List!


I told her she couldn’t have a tiara. I told her we were having a homemade Christmas. I even told her she was on Santa’s naughty list.
Then I got a package in the mail with this note: “After seeing Clover’s shock at not receiving her tiara for Christmas, my daughter said she could make Clover her tiara. Anna is a crafty little girl and had this tiara made in less than 15 minutes! She used beads from her bead box and wire. A homemade Christmas tiara for Clover. We hope she enjoys it and doesn’t think it’s a cookie!”
Thank you, Anna! (And thank you, Anna’s mother Diane!)
Clover: “It’s only what I deserve. I TOLD YOU, WOMAN.”
She’s going to be even more impossible to live with now!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

    SO super-duper cute! What lovely gals, Anna and Diane, must be to think of Clover during this holiday season. Her tiara is very becoming; may be all be so lucky as to have Santa shine upon us with love from our friends during this season.

    Ha! I told you so Clover. I told you to believe in Santa. I told you the statute of limitations had run out on the unfortunate milking incident!

    Thank you Anna and Diane for helping Santa out. During this busy season, sometimes he needs our help.

    Suzanne, I’m glad you got your electricity back. Here in Georgia, we lost our electricity 3 or 4 times during the night – due to high winds. I’m grateful that they were all only temporary outages and that none of our trees came down due to high winds and saturated ground.

    Merry Christmas to all.
