"When I was but a youngster
Christmas meant one thing
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day
I learned a whole lot different,
When my Mother sat me down,
And taught me to spell Christmas this way:

"C" is for the Christ child, born upon this day,
"H" for herald angels in the night,
"R" means our Redeemer,
"I" means Israel,
"S" is for the star that shone so bright,
"T" is for three wise men, they who traveled far,
"M" is for the manger where he lay,
"A" is for all He stands for,
"S" means shepherds came.

And that's why there's a Christmas day,
And that's why there's a Christmas day."

NaNoWriMo 2011

Weeow!! Survived NaNoWriMo for the 3rd year in a row... Managed to get around 40,000 words written in the last two evenings to make it to the 50,000 words in time... Ended with 50,675 words total, and 1 minute to spare!! SO glad I took that typing class a few years ago in high school! :-) Did any of you do NaNo this year, as well?
