Hi! We're Your Friendly Neighborhood Prowlers


the normally very reserved British lords started

a-leaping with joy when they received

their favorite sweet: English toffee!

Pip, pip, cheerio and all that rot!

. . . my true love gave to me
ten lords a-leaping,
nine ladies dancing,
eight maids a-milking
seven swans a-swimming
six geese a-layin'
five goooooooooolden rings!
four calling birds,
three french hens,
two turtle doves,
and a partridge in a pear tree!

Glory be! I think we've bumped into just about every single resident in our neighborhood as we've been skulking around making our deliveries. There is only so much one can say when getting caught lurking in the neighbors' bushes:

"Hehe . . . don't mind us. "We're, uh, just, uh, hanging out behind these lovely shrubs for, um, um, for a fun family get together! Yeah! That's it! We're, um, having our get together out here because, um, becaaaaaaause . . . because the bushes are just so, um, so fresh! And green! Yeah! They're so fresh and green, and, uh, we just wanted to have our get together while being surrounded by freshness! And greeness! So, uuuuh, we'll just be moseying along now . . . . "

Good grief.

Christian bribed this guy with an extra nose and
a second pair of eyes in exchange for his not
ratting us out.

Good thing you didn't drop those off at my house. They would've been gone in 2 minutes flat! :)

Love the snowman! Our bushes, trees, grass, everything is green up here in the North Pole! The storm that made that snowman possible, blew right past us! I'm still hoping for a white Christmas!

It is fun to see what you come up with for each day! We might have to try this sometime ...
