"I love you with all my butt, I would say heart, but my butt is bigger."

"Worrying won't stop the bad stuff from happening; it just keeps you from enjoying the good."

I always like Christmas
You can go outside
To throw snowballs
Make snowmen
Or snow angels
Crystals in the air
Or maybe bundle up
In scarves
In Hats
In mittens
In sweaters
And stay warm
By drinking
Hot chocolate
And eating fresh cookies
To stories
About how the Grinch
Stole Christmas
And waiting
For Santa to come
Sneaking glances at
The wrapped presents
Under the tree
Then dozing off
With a smile
On your face
Eagerly waiting
For Christmas Day
