The 12 Days of Christmas . . . the Condensed Version

Real Estate Broker/Owner with | Portland Metro Exclusive Buyers Agent | 100% Buyer Representation ~ 100% of the Time Licensed State of Oregon

Last year I was so diligent in counting down the 12 Days of Christmas. 

This year, I started to save funny, spiritual, cute holiday videos, etc. to do another countdown.  They were saved in an email to myself in my DRAFT folder. 

And then . . . the Grinch must have stolen them . . . they were gone!  All the 12 gifts I wanted to give, and saved -- GONE.  I couldn't find them anywhere.  I was a tad ticked with losing those but that doesn't stop me.

Here's last year's GIFTS for the 12 Days of Christmas:


~ Gift #1 ~ An AMoosing Treat -- Hint:  CLICK on the Moose!
~ Gift #2 ~ "The Carol of the Bell"s and Pizza Delivery?? (Dominoes -- HO HO HO)
~ Gift #3 ~ Last minute gift ideas - comes in ONE flavor (BACON)
~Gift #4 ~ Do you believe in Santa Paws?  For the Dog Lovers
~ Gift #5 ~ The "Revised" Night Before Christmas - Shakespeare was RIGHT!
~ Gift #6 ~ I love the gift of Dance, I hope you will too
~ Gift #7 ~ Funny video of the Do's and Don'ts of gift giving
~ Gift #8 ~ This was for Hanuka, but the video is unlinked now
~ Gift #9 ~ 'Twas the Night Before Christmas . . . a classic recitation
~ Gift #10 ~ Love, love, love this flash mall mob -- HALLELUJAH
~ Gift #11 ~ Don't even bother on this one, the light bulb burned out
Gift #12   ~ This is another one that meant a lot to me, but SCROOGE turned it off
~ So for all you folks that have NOTHING better to do . . . please open your GIFTS, re-cycling from last year due to an unfortunate event of (me, most likely) hitting the DELETE key in the DRAFT folder. ~
~ Merry Christmas to all my friends and colleagues here on Active Rain.  You've made my year, as always, memorable and special.  We shared stories and tales of real estate, family, our nation and world.  We've cried together, laughed together and pissed each other off -- 'cause we're family and that's what we do!  I love you guys! ~

Carla, This is precious. I don't care if it is a repeat ... I missed this last year!  So sorry that you lost (deleted) what you planned to do ... that is so frustrating!  Merry Christmas!

I'm only on Gift 4 and love these. Sharing on Facebook.

Oh, Girl, I feel for ya, it totally bugs me when things go awry in the internet world--especially when self-inflicted (so-to-speak).

I, of course, will be hitting #4 for the dog lovers....duh....I DO believe, I DO believe in Santa Paws!

Blessings upon you for trudging ahead and giving us Christmas goodies regardless!
