  1. That is a great tag for Christmas. The joke was hilarious too. Great job Brenda.

  2. I did this one a few days ago here:

    I love the Charlie Brown Christmas special, too. Hope your sis gets better soon! It's hard being in the hospital this time of year (well, any time, but especially during holidays).

  3. Fun meme!!! Do you actually make tamales? That's way over my skill level!!!

  4. Praying that your sister is going to make a complete recovery, and soon!
    O, and stop by and check out my answers to the Christmas meme. Have a great day.
