sunday stealing

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger called Mary Poppins at the blog It’s Not All Mary Poppins. A bit of trivia: She is the first person we ripped off who also won The Rising Blogger award while we were still at that blog's helm. She states that she lifted the meme from Creative Gene. It was probably stolen by the author of that blog, as well. But that is as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing! Cheers to all us thieves! Sunday Stealing: The Christmas Meme

A lamenating machine? That is a riot! Have a great Sunday...

My allergies go nuts during tree time but I just refuse to give it up and keep popping my meds. If I had a kid with them though I'd go artificial. It wouldn't be fair to them. Have a great day!
