WONDERLAND: noun: a land or place full of wonderful things including, but not limited to, trees, twinkling lights, a warm fire, drinkies, reindeer friends, elves, boxing reindeer, soldiers, mermaid reindeer, doggos, and most of all... smiles, laughter and warm fuzzy feelings. Please enjoy the 12 days of Wonderland, as it contains all of the above criteria!
On the 1st day of Wonderland: held on the front porch in candlelight, it was magic to behold and at 30 degrees, the wine remained cold! Hineys too!
On the 2nd day of Wonderland: no wind, no snow, but a hilarious Coach Sarah-Santa hat-fashion show. She rocked them all!
On the 3rd day of Wonderland: I impulse bought a fire pit, never thinking it would be such a big hit!!!
On the 4th day of Wonderland: there was magic to behold, Clark W Griswold and I created an exterior illumination show.
On the 5th day of Wonderland: Tiiiiiishie showed up! (I hope you all sang it like 5 goooolden rings!)
On the 6th day of Wonderland: the reindeer arrived! On Dasher, on Runner, on Boxer and Blitzen. On Mermaid, on Swimmer, on Barker and Vixen!
On the 7th day of Wonderland: SANTA!!! I KNOW HIM! And his lovely wife (the real brains of the operation!)
On the 8th day of Wonderland: there were elves, and no, not from shelves! They were of the fun, rosy cheeked variety, nary a care about the cold because they had boozy hot chocolate to hold.
On the 9th day of Wonderland: a magical birthday was celebrated. Double nickels and doubled up on the blankets cause Baby, it’s cold outside!
On the 10th day of Wonderland: the weather wasn’t NASTY, but the company was!
On the 11th day of Wonderland: the military showed up to keep a rowdy family of elves in order.
On the 12th and last day of Wonderland: someone learned their dang lesson. If you don't dress festive, you won't get away with it. You will be punished with the baby pink Santa hat!!
To everyone who came to Wonderland, whether it was the infant front porch version, or the current back deck version, I thank you. It meant the world to me that you would come and freeze your tushies off to share some Christmas cheer.
