It's DECEMBER! This is always a busy time for me. My birthday is just around the corner.Another year older...yikes! My family plan to go to the local French bistro to celebrate this Friday! Then on Saturday we are hosting a party for approximately 20 teenagers! I'm
not really looking forward to the work and noise, but it's too late to back out now.... It turns out that David's friends can ALL come! I am planning to serve desserts and appetizers while they watch the latest Star Trek new release DVD. It should be FINE :)
I came across with this article Sorry, Virginia, but Santa Claus won't be writing to you . Here's a excerpt:
"Thousands of starry-eyed children all over the world are writing letters to the jolly man at the North Pole this holiday season, but they're not likely to get a response from Santa Claus or his helpers. The U.S. Postal Service is dropping a popular effort begun in 1954 in the small Alaska town of North Pole, where volunteers open and respond to thousands of letters addressed to Santa each year. Replies come with North Pole postmarks. Postal Service officials said they are tightening rules in such programs nationwide after a postal worker in Maryland recognized a volunteer in the agency's Operation Santa program as a registered sex offender. The postal worker interceded before the individual could answer a child's letter, but the Postal Service viewed the episode as a big enough scare to make changes to the program....:"
I sure hope the tradition will live on. It's sad to give it up because of this incident. The world needs Santa Claus!
I'm sharing another butterfly card here. It was my last submission for the blog day challenge at Hero Arts. All the pieces were scattered on my desk, so it was easy to put them together. I'm loving all that glitter...
Thanks Very Much for coming to my blog. Two months ago, I started this blog and I never knew that I can have so much fun with it.
