Jump to comments

I hope that all of you are having a wonderful and relaxing holiday season; thank you all so much for reading, commenting, emailing, and lurking. We appreciate you all so very much, especially in years like this, which turned out to be harder than we could ever have expected. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and I’ll see you on Monday!


This year’s Crooked Acres covergirl was…


On the back of the card, it said:

(Shhhh, don’t tell the kids!)

All of us here at Crooked Acres wish you and yours a wonderful holiday, and a happy and healthy 2016!

I’ll admit that putting together this year’s card was pretty rushed – the end of October took me by surprise, and I knew I had to get something done before I had shoulder surgery. Stinkerbelle was completely, 100% not cooperating. I wish I could have gotten a picture with her face showing, but I took what I could get.

Also, all the cards I’ve received from y’all have been opened, admired, scanned, and posted over at Flickr. Seriously, thank you guys SO MUCH for the cards, I always love opening and reading them!


Here are the Christmas cards from years past (starting with the oldest).

Mister Boogers from 2004 or 2005.

Spot, in 2008.

Tommy in 2009. That look he was giving me still cracks me UP.

Spanky in 2011.

Miz Poo in 2012.

Maxi in 2013.

Sugarbutt in 2014.
