~ Bubba and Patty Ann's Christmas Letter~

Just thought I would share a Re-post from last year with you..Thanks for coming by as I know how very busy all of you are this time of year..

Hey a'll , Bubba and me have had a Great 2010.....Bubba finally is getting a few thangs done around the house...Got me a brand smashing new door bell...And just in time for our family gathering
I got the tree up and all lit..Bubba got laid off from the Gin Mill again this year...said he was drinking up the profits...
I have been trying to make me some Purdy things for our house...make some Advent calendar's to give to family and friends...Bubba found me some wreaths forms...
and some coat hangers trees...
Bubba got me a new dishwasher as our last one died...It came just in time as I was getting so tired of hand washing my best china....
Bubba got a new buck this year biggest one so far...Ain't it a beauty...
We spent one whole hour getting the yard done for Christmas...Bubba said we need to cut back next year
Things are lookin purdy in the "Trailerhood " this year....
Bubba Jr. done got himself married and graduated from the fifth grade all this in one month...We is so proud of him and his first cousin Susie Lou for tie-in the knot...
Bubba the 3th was his best man....We was so glad he was born on time....To attend his Mama and Daddy's wedding day....I made them a special cake....
Grandpa has been doing great this year and was up to attending the wedding...He has lost some weight since losing his teeth...still says our dog ate them...
Bubba and I did get our Christmas cards done....I think Bubba get better looking each year....Well friends and family as you can tell we had another great year...
Merry Christmas Y'all....

Until next time from my mountain to yours.
Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

OMG, Ms. Gloria, you have gone and out done yourself again. These are the funnest things I have ever seen.I love the red car as a sleigh, the dog in the dishwasher and the big tooth baby, to name a few. It looks like you are getting back to your normal, fun loving self. Merry Christmas, my friend. Richard and Sissy Dog. If I had a dish washer, I'd give Sissy a much needed bath!

Carole Burant said...

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too .. xoxo
