This is so cute... and sweet! Claire Koch is 5-years-old. Her parents are both deaf and she learned American Sign Language before she learned English.
At her school's Christmas program, Claire decided to sign the whole performance, so her parents could enjoy it! She stole the show!
There are so many ornaments on my tree that have a special meaning, I couldn't possibly post every one. So, I'm sharing 3 that are especially important to me.
First, two ornaments that originally hung on my grandparents' Christmas tree. There's nothing fancy about them, except that they came from family. My grandparents passed away many years ago, but I still love and treasure them and the memories.
Finally, this is a teddy bear ornament I made in 2nd grade. I remember we cut out 2 pieces of felt, then "stuffed" it with a folded Kleenex and glued it together. We were allowed to do the front any way we liked. I thought I was so brilliant to come up with the tie. No one else in the class did that and I was so proud of myself. lol
My mom thought it was the ugliest thing. Every year, she stuck it on the back of the tree. I, of course, would find it and put it back to the front. When I moved to my first apartment, Teddy came with me. He's had a spot front-and-center ever since!
Here's the Hippopotamus Song everyone loves so much. This is Gayla Peevey appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show. The sound quality at the beginning is a little poor, but as soon as the song starts, it's perfect.
For those who just can't get enough....
Amazon has announced that they should have delivery services via drone within the next 5 years. If you'd be willing to pay for it, you could have your order delivered in about 30 minutes! Watch the video to see how it will work.
This song is requested quite often. More often than we could possibly play it. So I decided to put up a link where you could enjoy it any time you like.

Yesterday's Rams/Bears game was great to watch. So were the fans who showed up!
First, this guy, who was in front of me in the security line. Who knows WHAT he was thinking when he got that tattoo!
Once inside, I ran into a Bears fan wearing a turkey on his head. I asked to take his picture and he insisted we take the photo together. He was very nice, and very inebriated.
At half-time, the alcohol had caught up with him. Either that or wearing turkey makes you as tired as eating it.
Then there was this woman. Worst dressed Bears fan of the day, for sure. A too-small hat (pretty sure it was a kid's hat), short shorts in the freezing cold... and flip flops!
Finally, Santa was in the house! I don't think it was the real Santa, though, because he was wearing a Bears' jersey. I think if the real Santa was at a Bears game, cheering for the Bears, they would win.
