My sister

My sister sent this email. I had to share it with you!

We did it! Todd and I hung our outdoor Christmas lights today! I just had to share our holiday spirit, so I wrote this message to the tune of,"The Twelve Days of Chrismas," just to share our joy! Here goes...During the first phase of decorating the outside of our house we made Twelve trips up the ladder, needed Eleven feet of extension cord, made ten trips to the attic, straightened nine tangled light strands, needed eight brand new fuses, replaced seven burnt out light bulbs, shouted six,"I don't knows!", endured five hours of swearing!!!! spent Four twenty dollar bills, gulped three Frapuccinos, made two trips to WalMart, and discussed one pending divorce! Ta! Da! We made it! Happy %$#@ Holidays! So what's your Christmas story?

I think she should blog...

Oh that was priceless! You sound like DB and I. We always have those "decorating tiffs". One year we got mad at each other and he stormed out of the house to put up the house lights, fell off his ladder and I found him unconscious in the yard with his head bleeding. Scared me to death. Now we make a point of being civil.
Loved your rendition of 12 days!

That is great! I love new renditions to those wonderful Christmas songs. Maybe you can teach her how to start her own blog!
