Holly Jolly Blog Bingo – Day Eight

Holly Jolly Blog Bingo - Day Eight

Good morning & Happy Monday!

Thank you for all your kindness yesterday in wishing me a Happy Birthday.  And to those that shared, a Happy Birthday to you!  It was a wonderful day with the family and I even got to sit down for a few hours and watch some Christmas movies.  Many of us wear the badge “Football Widow.”  Around this house, everyone wears the badge “Holiday Hallmark Movie Widow/Orphan.”  I love my Christmas movies :)

On a side note, for those of you that are waiting for the words via RSS or email, for some reason they are a day behind.  You can always check here on the blog for the day’s words!

Okay, ready?  Here we go!
