(Holiday) Sunny Side Up

Below is a video that I have to share with my bloggy pals. In it, some dogs and a cat sit down for a holiday feast. You heard right: a cat, as in singular. Because guess who's got to be at the head of the table?

Even the cat is amused.

If this isn't the funniest thing you see today, it'll surely be the most unique.

Don’t I take good care of you all?



Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Last weekend before Christmas! *squee*

When Christmas Treats Go Wrong

What would the holidays be without baking fails? It wouldn’t be as much fun, that’s for sure. And like many people, I’ve had my fair share. Everything looks so darn easy in the recipe. In reality, it’s a whole different ball game.

Here are some hilariously tragic Christmas treat outcomes...



If you make these in the spring, it'll explain the meltdown.




The cookies below look like they were prepared by a professional baker. How the heck is an ordinary person going to do that?

This has actually happened to me!



You can't go wrong with snowmen and strawberries. Or can you?

Well, as long as they taste good.

What about a Christmas tree cake?

This donut hole Christmas tree didn't quite make it to the finishing line.


Another attempt at beautiful cookies gone wrong...

The snowman with the marshmallow eyes is hilarious!
So is the one with the marshmallow boobs!



As for gingerbread houses, they can be salvaged because...


And that makes all the difference!

Have a great day, everyone.
(Oh my gosh...only one week until Christmas!)

(Holiday) Question Of The Day


Where does one begin with such a question? I like so many that it’s almost impossible to pick one.

But.

There is one that rises to the top because it takes me back to my early childhood and brings to mind so many wonderful memories. I first discovered this song in a Christmas television special that was produced in 1968 and continues to be aired so many years later. The song, which is also the title of this television classic, is “The Little Drummer Boy



“The Little Drummer Boy” has been performed by many very talented individuals over the years but my all-time favourite version is by Bob Seger. Here’s a video of him singing with scenes from the beloved television special.



I fell completely in love with this tune the first time I heard it, and it continues to be a top choice.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Hometown Memories: Christmas Caroling

One of the most nerve-racking interesting things I’ve ever done as a child is go door-to-door Christmas caroling. And of course, my brother, Steve, went right along with me because we were completely inseparable as children and did everything together.

Performing for others wasn’t the easiest thing in the world for me to do because not only was I an introverted child that avoided the spotlight, I was also a painfully shy one, too. But my brother wasn’t bashful by any means, and he was quite the ham, so that made it easier. All I had to do was follow his lead.

Many, many Christmases ago. Steve is all the way to the left and I'm all the way to the right.
My brother may not be with us anymore but I have a lifetime of wonderful memories of him.

We only visited families that we knew, which certainly put me more at ease, and I must admit that it got easier as we went from one home to another.

One of the buildings we dropped in to sing Christmas carols to some family friends.

In fact, I was disappointed when we ran out of homes to visit; I wanted to keep going. Not that being tipped after each visit and amassing a small fortune by the end of that day had anything to do with it. Not at all.

Honest.
(fingers crossed behind back)

Have you ever gone caroling?
