The introductory card yesterday said:
"The 12 Days of Christmas"
The 12 days of Christmas is the song that we sing and in this sack 12 presents we bring.
December the 14th is when you may start.
Unwrap one present a day with love from our heart!
Having you as grandparents is a dream come true.
This is our way of wishing Merry Christmas to you
Love B, E & T
The note on the first card:
On the first day of Christmas my cute grandson brought to me...
A partridge in a pear tree-how boring!
Kind of reminds me of grandpa snoring.
An ornament instead will add beauty to your tree,
and commemorate the past year(well, since March) with thee.
The ornament is of Joseph and Mary gazing down at baby Jesus, with the words "Love was born" written on Jesus quilt. I decorate our tree with manger type ornaments each year, so I will be able to look at it each year and remember when we added T to our family
On the second day of Christmas my cute grandson brought to me....
Two turtle doves are very rare
and nowhere could I find a pair.
But Costco had a gift membership for two,
and I thought you could start January grocery shopping anew!
