Secret Admirer, Maybe?

Nope, I don’t have one – but my mom might. Someone has been leaving stockings on her door. The first one had a pear shaped Christmas ornament. The second one had two chocolate turtles and two dove chocolates (yeah, you get the idea what’s going on here). It ought to be interesting to see what they come up with for the rest of the twelve days (and even more interesting to see who’s doing it). Whoever it is, I think it’s a good distraction for her. My dad died six years ago today, so this time of year is always bitter-sweet for all of us – but especially her.

I’ll try to keep a running list of what she gets each day.

Day 1 – Partridge in a Pear Tree (Pear Christmas ornament)
Day 2 – Two Turtle Doves (2 chocolate turtles and 2 Dove chocolates)
Day 3 – Three French Hens (3 "peeps")
Day 4 – Four Calling Bird
Day 5 – Five Golden Rings
Day 6 – Six Geese a Laying
Day 7 – Seven Swans a Swimming
Day 8 – Eight Maids a Milking
Day 9 – Nine Ladies Dancing
Day 10 – Ten Lords a Leaping
Day 11 – Eleven Pipers Piping
Day 12 – Twelve Drummers Drumming

So has your mom gotten anymore gifts? Just curious. Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!

I saw her this weekend and she told me what 3, 4, & 5 were. I remember 3, forgot what 4 was, and didn't understand 5. I'll have to call her and write them down this time. We were eating dinner when she told me about the other three.
