I think this bit of fun deserves a re-posting. After all, what are the holidays with out traditions? I hereby dub this one of TGSGS’s annual holiday posts; so it is written, so it shall be done.
Thanks for spending this play-filled year with me. For every tree you climbed, fort you built, trail you hiked. For everything that required crayons, glue and glitter. For every Mystery Critter case you cracked. For every belly laugh and gasp of awe-struck wonder you uttered. For every minute of playful spirit you modeled for those around you, I thank you. Gold stars and grass stains to you all!
Here’s a little fun I’ve cooked up for you this holiday season. xoxo Bethe
On the 12th day of Christmas TGSG gave to me:
12 perfect snowflakes
11 stones a skipping
10 stars a twinkling
9 children giggling
8 frogs a croaking
7 kites a flying
6 rainbows gleaming
5 forts to build
4 scampering squirrels
3 trees to climb
2 box turtles
And a grass stain on each knee!
No matter what you believe, or don’t, the holiday season is truly special. May yours be filled with much love and laughter, and warmest wishes for a happy, healthy 2013!

Now, you probably won’t get a chance to see one of these this weekend, but rest assured, there is plenty to be seen. Just step outside with open eyes and a quest for adventure. Grab the kids, and see what you can find.
