12/25/2014 Evening - To Mitch's Place
After departing from Panda Inn Christmas Day Dinner we headed to Whitter to go to Luisa's home and meet up with the Lind/Klix families! Always fun to be with a
collection of wonderful family and friends on Christmas Day!

We are about to sing "The Twelve Day Of Christmas"
We draw numbers out of a hat and those with 1-12 get to howl away!
Did You Know? - "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carol that enumerates in the manner of a cumulative song a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. The song, first published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin.
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 68. The tunes of collected versions vary. The standard tune now associated with it is derived from a 1909 arrangement of a traditional folk melody by English composer Frederic Austin, who first introduced the now familiar prolongation of the verse "five gold rings".
Some went outside to warm up their voices
"OK... Who has my baby?"
"I back Daddy!"
Miles of smiles
Great Grandma and Lilly
"You are moving too fast Lilly"
"I see my Daddy!"
"Dinner time and all is well"
"Yes... I know how to do this very well!"

Shaken well... No vermouth
"I am tired... Been cooking all day!"
"Oh I hear you Lilly.... Grandpa Mitch is tuned to Lilly's frequency"
"Gee Grandpa... Your tummy is nice of soft like a big pillow"
"Watch me... I can reach for everything"
"Great Aunt Penny and Mommy are watching me!"
Back to Daddy
Lilly rules the roost!
