SonyaAnn said...

D.Lynn-eventually I'm going to get my butt in trouble for my references. But until then..................

I think you put things like that at the top so that if your kids stumble on your blog, they won't notice what gifts they're getting...
Now I won't be able to eat ANY gingerbread cookies this year.
