Happy Holidays!!!



With three fine helpers,
And a couple of elves,
Santa is ready to make presents
And put them on shelves.
Run quick to the store
And start shopping like mad
Santa made those presents
And he needs the money real bad.
Mama Claus wants jewelry with diamonds so clear 
And Santa does what he's told, rather than live in fear. 

So happy holidays to you, 
And your mom and your dad,
And your sister Evie and your best friend Thad.

And happy holidays to the banks, 
To whom I give thanks,
For all of the money I wasted, 
On candy canes and toy tanks.

And happy holidays to the post office, 
That mailed that package first class.
And to the policeman who stopped me,
For driving too fast.

And Happy Holidays to my friends and family ... and that guy at work,
You are the best part about Christmas, 
Even when you're a jerk.

So spill the eggnog and knock over the tree,
I'll still hug you at midnight and shout out with glee,
Happy Holidays to ALL and to all a good night, 
We'll be rocking and rolling until Santa sails out of sight.




[Happy Holidays everyone!!! I am signed out until next week so that I can celebrate the Holidays with my family. I hope everyone has a great week filled with family, fun, hopefully snow and lots and great food.]

Crochet Christmas Gnomes Smell Like Cookies



I don't see anything.
Me either.
It's got to be out here.
Just keep looking.
Keep looking. Keep looking.


A Gnome is Special

Three gnomes,
One hat.
Each is special,
Santa knows all about that. 

A gnome is helpful
A gnome is kind
A gnome will save you,
When you're in a bind.

Don't fear the gnome,
They bring the fun,
They find your shoes,
They save you time. 

So this year leave out cookies, 
Just for them,
It's worth it,
They know where your socks have been.

A Little Snow Never Hurt A Crochet Bunny



Four balls,
No five.
Six balls,
Baseball sized.

Better duck,
Or hide for a spell.
Mike is throwing,
And he throws very well.

I'm no expert,
I'm just observing.
But you've got three snowballs,
And mike looks deserving.

Aim for the hat,
Throw straight and true,
Don't worry about it,
The snowball knows what to do.

Oh that's harsh,
A snowball right in the ear.
Try again friend,
You've got nothing to fear.

I love snow days!
They're bright and fun,
Woops, Mike made more snowballs,
I think it's time for us to run.

So What are Snowmen For?



It's strange and cold
It's white and bold.

I don't understand,
Does he guard this land?

Who is this man?
And why does he have a stick for a hand?

I dare not guess, 
This whole thing is a mess.


Lets go to Mars,

It's more fun up amongst the stars.

Sledding for Crochet Bunnies



Why didn't we bring two sleds? 
We did, yours is white.


Sledding
Rolling like a wheel,
Down a hill, that's the deal!

Sliding with no net,
Hoping not to get wet.

Fingers pink and tingly,
Sled forcing us to go singly.

I slide to the bottom,
Hand warmers, I got 'em!

Don't forget this time,
The next turn is mine.

Ready to go again,
Come on, be my friend.

The Ice is Frozen



It's getting a bit chilly,
The water is quite cold.
I'm thinking it's not summer.
Or so I'm told. 

I'm starting to shiver,
My scales are freezing up.
I hate to say this,
But it might be time to bundle up.

It Must Be Snowing Somewhere


Nice job guys, he looks real' professional.
Thanks! We tried to make him look as much like the original as possible.
Well, you nailed it. Just need to get his black top hat and you're done.
What are talking about? Dad doesn't wear a top hat.

[Oh, yeah. It's that time of year again. Muahahahaha!]

Winter Picnics are Fun Too



So what if it's cold
So what if your lips are turning blue.
Turtle is cold blooded and ant probably can't feel it too.

So what if it's gusty
And your hair is flapping in the wind,
Turtle and ant don't have any hair, so shush, be a nice friend.

So what if it might snow,
And you left your gloves somewhere,
Ant and Turtle don't even have gloves, and that's just not fair.

Sailing and the Calm Blue Lake



In the sunlight,
I'll be sailing
Out in the water,
No time for bailing. 

With my friends,
I'll go fishing,
Won't look for monsters,
That'd be wishing.

On a Thursday,
I'll go boating,
We'll sing some songs,
No time floating. 

And if you're nice,
I'll invite you too,
We'll have some fun,
We won't feel blue.

Happy Winter Fun To You!!!

December is Boating Season



What are you two doing?
Blueing.

What's blueing?
Getting cold and A-A-Achoo-ing.

That doesn't sound fun.
Well, then you probably should run.

Why's that, may I ask?

'Cause we'll splash if you don't run fast.
Ok, bye! It's been a blast.

Fall is for Helping



Come on lady, just lead towards me, I'll grab you.
Meaowww-NO!

Just move an inch, you won't fall.
Meowwwww-NO!

What if I woof and bark and jump and shake the tree?
Meow. I'm leaving.

I'll Be Tip-Toeing Through the Tree Tops



It's cold,
I'm cold, 
She's cold, 
They're cold.

So there are no flowers,
No sparkling sunny towers.
No warm sandy beaches,
No ice tea filled with peaches.
So there are no blooms,
No pink Plumes.
No honeymoons.

It's cold!
Buy a coat.

It's Three Weeks Till Christmas!



Three weeks to go and what do you do?
Get pictures with Santa with you mom and sis too.

And you write your Christmas list, and clean your room.
And home that mom doesn't remember how you made the vacuum go boom.

Your eat all your veggies and laugh at bad jokes,
You stop whining about TV and about your fish that went croak.

You clean up the garage, and sort all the trash,
You play with your sister, and let her use the Hulk to go smash.

You do all the things that you think you should do
And you hope with all your might that Santa does his job too.

A Crochet Tree so Bright and Beautiful



There it is, Our Christmas Tree.
A tree so big, it's bigger than me.

It's branches are broad, it's leaves so soft,
It can easily hold our ornaments aloft.

What a great pick dad, A perfect choice,
And now for the star, so bright, to hoist.

Let's give it three cheers, and a high five or two,
Never was there a better tree...ok, maybe a few.

But ours is the best and I love it the most.
Our neighbor's is nice, but it doesn't come close.

Crochet Kitties are Not All Alike


There's a kitty over there.
Where?
Over there.

There's a bit of black fluff that's stuffed.
Show me a kitty and I'll bow,
But I see nothing that goes meow.

I don't mean to be blunt, but it's right there in front.
You say you can't see it,
I'm thinking you don't mean it. 

A kitty I can spot,
Crazy I am not. 

Just look strain ahead,
You'll see it or I'll not be fed.
Just look dad, look! 
I swear, crazy pills you took.

I see no kitty, but you and me,
No kitty to make it three.
You are making me worried,
If you think this black blog is furried. 

Now I'm seeing the truth,
You aren't seeing the earth.
Your glasses are at home,
I'm surprised you can see well enough to roam.
Trust me on this, I swear,
There is a little black kitty over there. 

I'll take your word on it this time,
But don't think your opinion will soon be mine.
I'm coming back to prove you wrong,
Then you'll be singing a different song.

Yes dad.

A Crochet Jingle



They said "can't fly"
"Oh, my"
"Don't, try"
But they don't know the best of me.

They said "who's that"
"too fat"
"not all that"
"just scat"
But they don't know the best of me.

I've got that Christmas tingle,
That special zingle
To take Santa up in the sky tonight!

I've got the Holiday Hum,
Like a beatin' drum,
So let's take Santa up in the sky tonight!

They said "no way"
"can't play"
"move away"
But they don't know the best of me.

I'm gonna shine like sun,
Gonna fly like a cheetah can run,
AND I'M GONNA FLY WITH SANTA TONIGHT!!!

A Little Christmas Cheer



Bring the lights,
Bring the cheer,
I wish it was Christmas all year!

Unpack your jackets,
Unpack your boots,
Get ready for snow with cheers and hoots.

Open some boxes,
Wrap some gifts,
Throw out your tights pants, soon they won't fit!

Black Friday Madness



Why are we doing this now? Yesterday was Thanksgiving, we should be sleeping!
It's going to get cold in like 2 hours, trust me. Every year, exactly 12 hours after Thanksgiving dinner is served, the temperature drops 20 degrees and then mom says "Why don't you guys go out and put the lights up while you're here? I'm so nervous on the ladder, it'd be such a big help" and each year we fall for it and have to come out here in the FREEZING cold to put up the lights. If we do it now, we won't freeze.
Ok, well....If you say it like that.

Helping with the Lights
Don't fall for that jazz,
Tell your mom you have to pass.

Hanging lights is a bummer,
You should have done it during summer.

Take a nap instead,
No one will notice you're in bed.

Wait until the very last minute,
And then don't finish.

Pull a muscle in your back,
Make your friend pick up the slack.

And most important of all,
Don't celebrate Christmas at all.

Because if you DID, 
You'd have to admit...
That you should have bought a tree
When I invited you to go with me.
And you should have hung the lights,
Instead of picking a fight.
And you should have made eggnog
Instead of updating your blog.

But alas,
Christmas is now a pass.
Except for me, I prepared,
And now Santa won't be scared.
He'll find my house in the dark
And give me presents like peppermint bark
And you'll have to go without, 
Because you forgot what Christmas was all about.

Working as a team,
Doing what we mean,
Being nice to the elderly,
Giving toys to the childrenry.
Laughing politely at not-funny jokes,
Begin nice to each girl and bloke.

So remember for next year, 
Or start now, you've nothing to fear.

A Happy Crochet Thanksgiving to You!



It's Thanksgiving Day,
Hurray! 

Time to eat and talk,
Time to chat and mock
Our favorite football teams playing that day.

Time to watch puppies parade,
And floats promenade.

Time to laugh over coffee,
Oh why don't we,
Just sit and visit for a while.

I'll tell you about sis, 
You can fill in the stories I missed 
And we can all have pie and ice cream.

So on this very special day,
Let's forget about dismay
And just be glad for each and every ray.

Thanksgiving Meets Christmas in Crochet Valley



Hey Paul, isn't it a little early for the Santa hat? We're celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow.
The houses are decorated, the stores stocked up, Christmas is here my friend, whether we want it or not.
True, true.

Bring your friends together, 
Celebrate with fun and joy,
Share the cookies and candy,
With all the girls and boys. 

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Thanksgiving is a State of Mind



There be no turkey here, only Santa.




Picking your Turkey
It's cold,
Be bold,
Don't let your pride get sold.

Sit up straight,
Don't faint.
Have an imposing gait. 

It's time,
I've got the thyme
I'm really hoping I can make you mine.

Camping in the Cold




There are a set of green bunnies sitting out in the cold
They were camping with dad, but he said he was too old
To sleep out at night on the ground with the twigs
So at midnight he headed inside where mom is

It was dark and windy that night in the tent
And both bunnies wondered where dad had went
But at the last minute when all was lost
He showed up with hot chocolate and ice cream with chocolate sauce

It was good fun in the tent with dad that night
Even when the lightning gave the bunnies a fright
Dad told stories and made finger puppies in the light
The bunnies cuddled up and talked all through the night.

It might be cold and windy these dark winter days
But now they know dad is the dad that plays
So each night they cuddle up on the couch
And they tell stories and laugh until their sides go ouch.

Winter Campout



On a cold winter night
A father gave his kids an awful fright.

They were gleeful to be camping out,
But they misunderstood what it was all about.

Those little green bunnies thought Santa was near, 
But alas, it was too soon to bend his ear.

They had lists prepared! And cookies too.
But it was too soon and they were blue.

"We'll see him soon," their dad said cheerfully,
But the bunnies just stared at their lists tearfully.

Something needed to be done, and he had a thought,
So from inside the house, pen and paper was brought.

And the two little bunnies carefully drew,
Notes to Santa and Mrs. Clause too. 

The camp out was saved and the bunnies had fun,
It was dad's good thinking that made it fun for each son.

Spotting the Owl



I'm a little on the shy side as you can see,
I'm hiding in a crowd so you can't identify me.
I've got brown feathers and pink around the eyes,
I'm as sneaky as they come, almost like a spy.
I'm sneaking off you see, to hide out of town.
I don't want anyone to know, that I'm hanging around.
It's Thanksgiving next week and I don't want to be caught,
I'm not into family gatherings and all that what not.
I just want to relax and watch football with friends,
But if I'm honest, I know I'll end up at home in the end.
But don't give me away! I'll come back when I'm ready,
I don't want to show up until mom kicks out Uncle Eddie.
He makes bad jokes and sneezes all the time,
If he's so allergic to cats, why doesn't he hang out with his family and stop bothering mine!
Oh well, here I go, remember don't say a word.
If I stay away long enough, mom might not make me wear something absurd.

Family Thanksgiving



One day of the year,
When it super cold.
The owls gather together,
The young and the old.

I'd tell you they have fun,
But I'd be a liar.
Dad insists on cooking,
So there's always a fire.

Mom gets really mad,
And goes out for the night.
We try to play board games,
But it always ends in a fight.

The kids stay up super late,
Watching scary movies and laughing,
They never get to sleep,
Because they're so scared their gasping.

In the morning we all gather,
To help clean up the mess.
Mom helps clean all the dishes,
Dad helps the kids all get dressed.

Then we head out together to play in the cold,
We throw snow balls if there's snow,
We try playing football
If we feel bold.

When we all head home,
We feel really sad,
We call each other right away
We get over being mad.

It's good to spend that time together,
Playing and having fun,
Even when we don't all get along,
We know to each other we're number one.

Becoming the Turkey



You see son, there comes a time in every little baby poult's life when you have to face a sad reality.....Some turkeys just taste better than others.


[Poult = baby turkey <-- I googled it :)]

Thanksgiving is Coming



Bob, it's not like a person or anything. It's a holiday. It's fun.

I don't believe you. Every time someone says 'so and so' is coming, my house gets knocked over! I'm not leaving this time! I'm going to stay and when this Thanksgiving guy comes along, I'm going to give him a talking to.


It's a coming!
Thanksgiving's coming!

Better lock up the snacks,
Better hike up your slacks.

It's gonna flood with good cheer,
Watch out! the Turkey is near.

Oh Thanksgiving is coming,
Oh yes it's coming.

And it's gonna bring .....

Five of a Kind



There are five of us and we're each brand new.
Marvin just got made, and Ivan is new too.

We should take over the village and have a bit of fun
We should run a muck, get crazy, become undone.

It's Friday after all. The day where fun meets freedom,
We can play all night and make this place our Eden.

So what do you say, to a night of silliness and bliss?
Are you with us for the night, or will decide to miss?

Crochet Preparations for Thanksgiving



Did you collect the holly?

No and I'm not super jolly. It's Thanksgiving not Christmas - don't make me call Molly!

The holly is fun, it will make people happy, but whatever, I'll decorate with snap peas.

That's pretty strange, I think it'll look lame, I'll just buy the holly, but it'll be your folly.

People will love it, it'll be super fun. I'll get the house looking great, I'll get it all done.

Uh huh, Just make sure you get mom a big turkey from the farm up the road. Don't forget or you'll be sorry, she'll serve you liver and toad. 

I've got it written down and bolded and circled and starred, on Thanksgiving I swear, a turkey will be carved.


Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Is it Thanksgiving or Christmas?



Hey Mister, Aren't you the turkey?
-Nope, I'm Santa

No, I'm pretty sure you're not. You look like a turkey with a Santa hat on.
-I'm most definitely Santa. Why else would I be all round and jiggly like a bowl full of jelly?

Good food?
-And why do I seem so jolly if I'm not Saint Nick?

I don't know actually, why would you be jolly? I mean, people eat turkeys for Thanksgiving.
-Exactly. So I have to be Santa.


Does anyone else feel like their brain just got scrambled? <emphatic nodding>



In a few short weeks,
Families and friends will meet.

We'll have stuffing and gravy,
The kids will tease Uncle Davy.

There will be pie and ice cream,
Which will make the kids scream.
It'll be total chaos,
but who cares, it's just us.
I love my family too much,
to kick up a fuss.
So Happy soon-to-be Thanksgiving to one and all,
And don't forget to enjoy the pretty leaves that turn color in fall. 

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Share a Little Food With Me



The last leaf in the tree,
It's just for me.

I'd share it with you,
But then you'd get some too.

I'm hungry you see, 
And I want it all for me.

You're hungry too?
I never knew.

I guess I could share,
But only because I care.

You're my best friend you see,
And you're the most important thing to me.

A Little Crochet Pink is All You Need




A little pink to bring warmth to your cheeks
Soft and sweet and it reaches to your feets.

Your mom is a peach for making it for me,
I'm a big fan of gifts you see, 
Especially because they're free.

So let me share with you a little advice,
Even if something doesn't look at all nice.

Say thank you and be polite.
Because someone took the time to think about you.
And that's better than any silly gift, old or new.

Crochet Honesty Is Important



Hey April, How's it been going?
-Good. Can't complain.
You sure there's nothing bothering you?
-No, nothings bothering me.

Ok, Ok. I can't take it. April! Can we please talk about the ELEPHANT in the room? Because it's creeping me out.

<When figuratively meets reality>

What's Better Than a Turtle?



One big, One little.
One sits in the front, one gets stuck in the back in the middle.

They both walk slow, 
But the big one can see where to go.

The big one towers above,
But the little one fits into small spaces like a glove.

And in addition to fitting into small spaces,
Little turtles are hard to catch during chases.

So big or small, you can't go wrong.
They both deserve to have their own theme song.


Wednesday, November 5, 2014

What's up Turkey?




I don't know what to say,
I've been looking every day.


Guffry's been hiding here and there,
And I haven't been able to find him anywhere.

He needs to show up in 3 weeks,
He's the guest of honor at the feast. 

I sure hope I can find him before then,
Or we'll be stuck with Mrs. Hen.

Who I'm sure will do a lovely job,
But it's Thanksgiving and turkey goes best with corn on the cob.

Crochet Halloween is Over



It's cold and windy,
The leaves have fallen, And I'm feeling too skinny.

It's time to eat and be warm, 
To be with family and to laugh and charm.

But what to do with these orange dudes?
We could make pie and toasted seeds, or some hearty stews.

Oh a hearty stew sounds so nice,
With chunky toasted bread to eat by the slice.

And games! We must have games and fun,
Until we're all to tired and our day is done.

November Giveaway



This month I will be giving away a set of stocking ornaments - one red, one green - to one lucky winner

Directions: Like my Facebook page and respond to my post: Stocking Giveaway

See you there and happy holidays! :)

Buzzing Crochet Bees



A little buzzing here and there,
Never hurt a cow or bear.

We're only here to have fun,
Why does everyone always run?

The flowers are all going bye bye,
So away we must a fly fly.

But don't think we won't be back,
Because we will and that's that.

Happy Halloween



It's a spooky, scary, creepy day.
But also a special day for play.

Tonight you'll go from house to house,
And you'll creep around like a little mouse.

One lady might try to scare,
But you'll  notice her and know that she's there.

A scary mummy might jump out at you,
So be ready to run, to house number two.

And with each new door,
You'll knock politely and ask for more.

Remember to say thank you for each yummy piece,
And pet the kitty, little petrice.

So Happy Halloween!! My friends,
I hope you have fun until the spookiness ends.

One Day Until Crochet Halloween



You're being very silly.
Halloween is tomorrow and there'll be candy a-plenty.

Come down now or I'll call you mom, 
She was going to make candy apples and now they'll be none.

In twenty-four hours we'll be skipping along,
Singing Halloween songs.

We'll be with Johnny and April, 
And there will be so much candy, we'll each get our fill.

Well, I'm off to get sleep.
If you refuse to come too, then tomorrow you'll be tired and weak.

You won't be able to carry as much as me,
And so I'll have more than you, maybe times three.

Ha! On second thought, stay there! I dare you.
And I'll have it all and won't share too!

The Crochet Kitty Knows Where the Loot Is



Come'on kitty, tell me for real.
I promise not to steal.

It's just inside the door, right?
Or under the broken kite? Just out of sight?

I'm all dressed up!
I'm ready to gobble it up.

Please please let me have some,
I'm going to blow up if I can't have even a small piece of gum.

Ok, I see.
I guess I'll just let you be.

But be assured, you haven't seen the last of me.

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Is it a Crochet Trick or Treat?



It's a few days early, can't you see?
They're not at all ready for you and me.

Our costumes are great, our bags are ready for candy and sweets,
But I don't think anyone's here, we need to go home in defeat.

I know you're disappointed, but it won't be for long,
Soon it'll be October 31st and we'll be out strolling along.

The candy will be plentiful,
Enough to fill each tentacle.

And it will be so delicious,
To eat all those chocolates and gummy fishes.

So head home with me now,
No need to throw a tantrum or pout.

We'll be back in a few days, just you see,
And then they'll be ready for you and me.

Getting Crochet Ready for Halloween



I'm not so sure about this. This house is pretty spooky.

-Don't be silly. We're in costume. They can't not give us candy when we're in costume.

But... it's not Halloween yet.


When in doubt, check the calendar.

Crochet Owls in a Tree



One is for happy, like watching the sun set.
One is for glad, for being with friends.
One is for thankful, that we're all here together.
One is for excited, to do this again tomorrow.

One, two, three, four.
They are the ones that I adore.
They make you happy, give you cheer,
And each to me is quite dear.

I could get mad, or sad, or angry or annoyed,
But I'd rather be happy so I'll have less people to avoid.
I'd rather look forward than worry about the past,
I'd rather get excited about the fun I had last.

So cheer on your family and friends and colleagues,
And your dog and the cat and that kid they call knees.
Root for the slow guy when you're out jogging,
And that lady who has trouble with her eyeglasses fogging.

Stick up for your friend, even when they're rude,
And remember to always be a pretty awesome dude (or dudette).

Crochet Fall




The flowers are all gone.
The leaves will soon follow.
I'm alone out here.
Even the pumpkins are hollow.

Soon I'll head off to hibernate,
And you'll be free to run and play.
With out worrying I'll arrive,
And ruin your fun day. 

So go on now,
Have your picnics and fun,
I'll be back in the spring,
To make you all run.

Crochet Kitty Twins



Crochet Kitty Twins

On a Halloween night, not too far from now, 
These two sweet kitties will stalk the night for candy and chow.

I'm not talking sweet little kiddos asking for a treat,
They'll be taking from the little ones, the slow and petite.

These kitties are lazy, they don't want to go house to house,
How much faster it'll be for them to sneak and steal like a mouse.

Watch over your candy kids, be ever vigilant,
Don't let the kitties steal your goodies, you must be diligent.

A Crochet Tree for You and Me



A Crochet Tree for You and Me

This tree is for me can't you see
I've got my feathers on it and now it's claimed,
Go somewhere else! - he exclaimed.

No, no, silly owl, your logic has gone a fowl.
I've been here longer than you,
So the tree is mine, there's nothing you can do.

Yes, yes little kitty, don't think I'll give up just 'cause you're pretty
Time is circular and it's come back to me,
So be off now, step away from my tree.

This is just not right! And I'm up for the fight.
I'll call and I'll wine 
And I'll pace and be annoying all the time.
You'll give up my tree
And be away from me
Or I'll count to three.

One, two

Oh take it silly cat, 
Your silliness has just gone flat.
I had it fair and square,
But it's not worth it to put up with your mean stare.
So take the tree, and be free.
I'll just go home now and be sad and pout to my mommy.

Perhaps we can share, just as long as no one is aware.
I'll take the day, 
Since at night is when you like to play
And when we trade places, I'll say something nice, 
To keep you warm on those cold stormy nights.

Kitty Crochet Witch



Kitty Crochet Witch

In the woods can be found.
A scary cat, short and round.
He's got magic powers,
And a hatred for flowers,
He has on his head,
A witches hat, black not red.
Watch out! The scary cat should be feared,
I saw him once give a frog a beard.
So be wary in the woods today,
Scary cat is not one with whom you should play.

Three Crochet Pumpkins



Three Crochet Pumpkins

Three little devils,
Looking all unsettled. 
They're worried to be picked,
Worried they'll be nicked. (that means stolen)
One wants to be spooky,
One all the time kooky.
I'm after the third,
To make into Sir Spector the Third.

Pumpkin, gourd, or squash,
Remember to decorate it with panache.
