My Twelve Days of Christmas

For the first 12 days of December this year, I recreated the Twelve Days of Christmas for my true love... sorta.

I gave The Man of the House a small gift each day to represent the gift from that day of the song.  I had a ton of fun coming up with stuff to be a symbols of each day!  And got some help from the female offspring along the way.  Some were obvious.  Some I was really reaching for.  Some were just plain silly!

Here's how my 12 days of Christmas turned out:

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me: a partridge in a pear tree.  Or... a bird ornament on a pear drink.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 2 "turtle"doves

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 3 french hens.  ( But apparently not a camera, since I seem to have somehow missed taking a picture this day!)  It was a package of Christmas peeps.  The peppermint kind dipped in dark chocolate.  I asked them if they were, in fact, French and they responded "Mais, Oui!" But the accent was iffy, so I still have my doubts.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 4 calling birds
On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 5 gold rings
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 6 geese a laying. And with all those eggs, you're gonna need a whisk!
On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 7 swans a swimming

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 8 maids a milking (swiss maids...)
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 9 ladies (disco) dancing
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 10 lords a leaping
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 11 pipers piping
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 12 drummers drumming
