Boy Howdy...Is My Nose Red!

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

nine reindeer name games

It may just be my imagination, but it seems the line between babies' names and that of our pets is blurring. With traditional names like Matthew, Jack, Sandra, and Elizabeth being replaced with Spike, Scout, Daisy, and Coco...it's gotta be tough on the dogs. How do they know when to speak or fetch? Although...this might be a side benefit I wasn't aware of!

I've often thought you could tell the personality of the parents by the names they select for their babies. You just know if a Texas mother names her baby girl Buffy, she herself was a former cheerleader and she plans on raising a future Dallas Cowboys' cheerleader or a boy Jock, the future starting quarterback for UT! If folks are looking for names that will stand out from the crowd and give their kids a leg-up, why not take a page outta ol' Santy Claus's book. Now those are some names a kid could grow into!

Just for fun...let's make a naughty and nice list...whaddaya say?

  1. Dasher...this kid will definitely be a running back or working as the head ice cream maker at the Blue Bell factory.
  2. Dancer...Radio City Music Hall Rockette for sure or winner of the 2026 Dancing With The Stars prized mirror ball trophy.
  3. Prancer...Broadway bound or teaching Jazzercise classes down at the local Y.
  4. Vixen...she'll be stealing scenes on General Hospital or appearing as Blanche DuBois in Casa Manana's 2030 revival of A Streetcar Named Desire.
  5. Comet...an Olympic track star or doing voice-over commercials for achieving cleaner toilets.
  6. Cupid...easy...he or she will be writing an advice-to-the-lovelorn column for the NY Times or CEO of Match.com.
  7. Donner...this poor kid is on his own...I got nothin' 'cept maybe a member of an Osmond Brothers tribute band!
  8. Blitzen...this guy is destined to be the #1 pick in the 2032 NFL draft or a bartender at Pete's Tavern.
  9. Last, but certainly not least, Rudolph...doncha know he'll either be a famous haute couture designer or a valet who's main job is to dress a rotund, jolly, old fellow in red velvet and fur.

(Psst...in case you were wondering...Bella wasn't named after a Twilight character. Her name came to me in a dream and in Hebrew it means "Devoted to God". I think we can all agree...she is aptly named.)

Eight ways to Sunday

Seven secret Santas

This chick a-crafting

These mem-OH-ries

For-ever young

Three generations

Two naughty lists

And a snow-clad lady at W&T's

Whenever I need a good laugh I sould know to hop on over to your blog, because you always crack me up girl.

Hope you will be able to spend some quality time with your family this holiday season. Ours will be heading over the mountain to play in the snow. We figured we better do it now while our kids actually still want to spend time with us.

Merry Christmas and give that sweet Bella a hug for me.....she's proof that miracles do exist.
