Happy Christmas Time -Postcard Friendship Friday #144

It is hard to believe Christmas is nearly here.  I have always loved Christmas.  I adore this little girl with her white muff, coat and shoes.  Her Mother must have been a brave soul.  If I had ever sent out my little ones in white--even in the snow they would have returned decorated with all sorts of dirt and mud.

Have you ever gone mud puddle stomping?!  It is a joyful thing to do.  Everyone dresses in their worst clothes, then it's off to stomp in every single puddle one can find.  Once everyone is good and wet, frozen to the bone, it's off to hot showers, dry clothes and a very LARGE cup of steaming hot cocoa with marshmallows on top.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'll go play in the mud puddle with you! As always, thank you for hosting. Wishing you well. Peace.

I have never deliberately gone mud puddle jumping, but I have made a point of stepping into every puddle I saw on the sidewalk. The best was cracking the ice - haven't done that in a long, long time!

I would love mud puddle jumping but just the thought of going out out of the warm house into the snow...just the though, already freezes me in the spot! :P

The hot showers and the steaming hot cocoa with marshmallows on top are good motivation though! :D

Mud puddles are best avoided while wearing white. (but such fun!)

Sorry to be late, and sorry also for missing a few weeks.
