The 12 Days of Christmas…2012 Style

   It’s a holiday classic…the 12 days of Christmas. We all know what our true love gave to us according to that song. But really, what modern mom really wants any of those things on that dated list? Okay, maybe we’d still take the five gold rings. I surely don’t need eleven lords a leaping or a partridge in a pear tree, especially if its Danny Bonaduce… talk about useless gifts. French hens, and geese…just more things to clean up after. Twelve drummers drumming? Nope, that just equals more noise.

   Seeing that the old list is completely useless and impractical, I came up with my own little version that my husband and children could give to me this year. Some of these things are probably on your list too. Hope you like it! Feel free to sing it or add in the background track.
