Good evening sweet dear friends.
Can you believe there are only 20 days left until Christmas?
Whew, where did the days go?
As promised, this will be my last giveaway for the year.
Up for adoption is my latest Santa creation wearing his nightgown.
Wrapped around his nightgown is an aged paper gingerbread.
Santa is ready for bedtime and he decided to go over his
naughty and nice list one more time before Christmas,
as things are getting pretty hectic at the North Pole.
Now Santa knows everyone at some point has been on his naughty list,
however they always did something good to get back on his nice list.
For this giveaway,
I would like each of you to let me know something
naughty and something nice that you did as a child.
Here are a few of mine.
Janice's Naughty List
My younger sister Teresa is very afraid of worms.
One day I decided to play a naughty trick on her.
I asked her if she wanted me to push her on the swing.
She agreed, so I started pushing her really hard, so that she could go high.
When she was on the high end, I quickly placed a worm underneath the swing.
When she came back on the downside of course she saw the worm,
and started screaming.
She would not get off the swing and of course I did not remove the worm.
My mom ended up coming outside and she took her off the swing.
I of course was on Santa's naughty list.
My parents first home was decorated in the 50's style,
with primary colors of pink and turquoise.
I of course at the time preferred the turquoise over the pink.
The bathroom was also tiled in pink.
One day whilst I was brushing my teeth, I kept staring at that pink tile.
The light bulb went on.
Why not paint the tile turquoise!
I proceeded to add more Crest turquoise toothpaste to my brush,
and started painting the tile with it.
I thought it was a masterpiece.
My mom thought differently.
Once again I was on Santa's naughty list.
Well, I must have done something good each year
as I always received presents under the tree and no coal in my stockings. LOL
Janice's Nice List
One cold Winter while I was walking to school,
I heard a faint meow in a ditch near the road I was walking on.
At first I did not see anything, but then again I heard a little MEOW.
There in the snow was the tiniest little white fur ball.
Since I was closer to school than at home, I tucked him inside my coat
and went directly to the Principal's office.
Fortunately for me Mr. Dooley was good friends with our family.
He let me keep Snowball (what I started to call that Lil kitten)
in the supply room which was next to his office.
He emptied a box full of of copy paper and found some rags to line it.
The ladies in the cafeteria warmed up milk and cooked up chicken for the little guy.
I checked on Snowball between classes for the rest of the day.
We ended up finding a good home for him as our dog did not like kitties.
It was for the best.
This time I am 14.
Gramma H was selling her farm and it was the morning of the auction.
All of her furniture was out on the lawn.
It was a sad time, but what gramma had wanted.
One of my cousins really wanted a side table, but had no money to bid on.
I told my cousin..let's just ask gramma if you can have it.
One of my uncle's wife ( never liked the woman)
Well my so-called aunt overheard us and told us that her sister wanted that table.
This particular aunt already had pilfered furniture from another house
my gramma owned, so she was not well liked by anyone.
My cousin and I ran into the house to ask gramma about the table,
and she said we could have it.
Of course the aunt followed right behind us and grabbed my arm
as I was running out the door and told me,
"You better not take that table"!
I simply told her that my cousin was family and SHE WAS NOT.
We ran and grabbed that table and hid it in the woods until
everyone was gone.
My cousin still has that table today.
See, I did do some nice things for others. :-)
Now let's see what naughty and nice things you all did as a child.
Remember you must tell me one naughty and one nice thing you did in a comment.
Your name will then be entered to win Santa.
Drawing to be held sometime on Friday December 13th.
Good luck everyone.
I look forward to reading all of your lists!
Naughty and Nice Blessings To All!
