CHRISTMAS SING ALONG TUESDAY




This sing along was inspired by Athena's version of Night Before Christmas.



Hope you like it.




The Twelve Days Of Christmas
We all know the song, lets sing along:

(Starting with the last verse)
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five ... golden... rings,

Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!


That was very good!!



Now that you have the song in your head,



let's try the new PetsJubilee version:



On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me




Twelve cats in dresses,




Eleven cakes so yummy,




Ten pups in their best ties,






Nine ladies in kitty skirts,




Eight Christmas cards to mail,







Seven Christmas potholders ,








Six pairs of earrings,












Five … felted … dogs,







Four kitty collars,






Three painted slates,








Two pups in dog hats,
















And Doody pops for all the pups!






That was very good!!!

(I tried to include as many great petsjubilee team members as I could.




If I missed you, I will catch you next time. ;-) )

I want to add that this is also largely inspired by Patty's a-mews-ments, as well as Athena's Christmas story, although I do not claim to be any where near as talented as those ladies.

Thank you Shari.
Warm hugs to everyone this holiday season.

I love the history of the song! What a fun way to present it, too. And just so you know....we Americans REALLY need to get with the program and celebrate for 12days! There is just too much fun to be had to get it all done in one or two days!
