Over the river and through the wood

To Grandmother's house we go
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow

Over the river and through the wood
And straight through the barnyard gate

We seem to go
Extremely slow
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood
Now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

I'm going to be very busy this weekend, decorating for the holidays!!!

Be safe, have a great weekend...
See you in a couple o' days!!


  1. Happy thanks giving to you too!!


  2. happy thanksgiving to you and bud, i hope the day (and weekend) will be one filled with peace and love.

    sadly, we don't have a nice long weekend, although i could certainly fit one into my schedule, heee heee heee. the drumming's going real well, i'm still thoroughly enjoying it. and hubby got me an electronic drum kit for my birthday recently, and i'm over the moon... much easier to cart around than the acoustic one, but i have to admit, i miss the 'real' LOUD sounds when i practice on the new one... but at least our neighbours love us again, and i can practice any old time without bothering anyone...

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Anni to you and your family!

  4. Bhupest Thank you, and same sentiments to you and your family!!

  5. Shadow Thank you. And hope your family will have a great weekend also!! Also, I'm really happy that you now have 'quiet' drum practice. LOLOLOL
