Merry Christmas 2008

by on Dec.25, 2008, under Richard Bingle Family

Yo Ho Ho Ho Ho!

Just a quick note to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

After getting up early and opening presents at home, we drove out to the folks’ house for more presents and a light lunch with the folks and Marie and Wayne, then back home to meet up with Karen’s brother Dave and his family at our house so that the kids could play together.

From what we’ve been hearing on the news, the weather up north has been cold and snowy. Not the case here! While it was overcast today and drizzled a little at dawn, it was a pleasant 78 degrees today!

Don’t forget to take some time out of your busy day and remember why we celebrate!

— Rich

Ashley’s Florida Christmas Songs

by on Dec.25, 2008, under Ashley Bingle

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas,
With lots of palms and grass to mow,
Where the treetops bristle,
and children whistle,
Until I say they’ve gotta go

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas,
Not like the Christmas cards I’ve seen.
May your days be quite peachy keen,
And may all your Christmases be green.

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas,
Not like the Christmas cards I’ve seen.
May your days be quite peachy keen,
And may all your Christmases be green.

 

Oh the temperature is frightful,
But the pool is so delightful,
And since we will have no snow,
Let It Grow! Let It Grow! Let It Grow!

The rain doesn’t show signs of stopping,
Just keeps on drip-drip-dropping,
It does the grass good you know,
Let It Grow! Let It Grow! Let It Grow!

Oh the weatherman gives us a fright!
The sun makes this day really warm!
Though the breeze makes us all delight,
Watch out not to get caught in a storm!

Oh the rain, it is slowly dying,
And, oh dear, the grass is trying,
But as long as we shall not mow,
Let It Grow! Let It Grow! Let It Grow!

 
 
Merry Christmas!
-Ashley
