Merry SITSmas!

Woo-hoo, Merry SITSmas!! First of all, if you aren't here via SITS today, get right over there and check them out! It's the most fantabulous blogging networking community around, I'm telling you! Go now, I'll wait, but then please come back....

Okay, everyone all SITSified? Excellent. Where was I? Right, SITSmas. I'm already doing one giveaway (see post below, please - it is an excellent holiday gift kind of a giveaway!) but for SITSmas, I wanted to do a little something more. So, I made a little bloggy stocking stuffer, if you will - a little blog bling you can use to decorate your corner of the interwebz for the holidays.



If you want it, please help yourself to the code below my card!

Oh yes, the card. Now, I know that most folks are doing something along the photo card line, but I'm doing a little bit more.

It isn't that I didn't want to deck the halls, I mean, we decked our halls the day after Thanksgiving...





We even took Kiddo to see Santa (armed with her list, spelled entirely on her own, so she proceeded to read it to him to be sure there was no miscommunication)...



It's just that I felt a wee bit bad about the whole George Clooney video thing, with how I only kept that up for 24 hours. So, I decided to do another video as my SITSmas greeting card to all of you. I shot this one myself which means it is pretty shoddy camera work, and I did it in one take, so it's not perfection, but I hope you'll enjoy it nonetheless. (Oh yeah, and while I may be able to jam one of Kiddo's tiaras on my ginormous head pretty well, it turns out that borrowing her itsy-bitsy Santa hat doesn't work as well on my big ole noggin. It's more "resting precariously atop" than "being worn upon" as you might notice...) Here, therefore, is my holiday greeting to all my SITStas and BITS!

I saw your shrubbery comment on Nikki's blog this morning. "Shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is Roger the Shrubber. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies!"
Anyone who likes shrubbery is okay in my book!
I've enjoyed looking over some of your posts and I'll be back for more!

WheresMyAngels said...

You are such a nut!! lol

You have me cracking up though.

I love the little Sitsmas button, course, I just added it at the end of the celebration :( booo, but I had a 12 hour work day where I could only take a few minutes once an hour to log on and comment on SITS. Now I am trying to keep up with everyone else but I am tired and tired and tired.

Two more days and I get a mini vacation! I'm so excited, My parents live just three hours away but I haven't been to see them in a year. I get to go to my old home this weekend. The place I lived for 21 years til I got knocked up and married!! lol

Merry Sitsmas!
