What do you mean it’s silent round here? Where’d everybody go?
The only thing Holy round here is Bunny’s Jeans.
All is Calm…
No it’s not!! People are wondering why their comments are just sitting in moderation!!
All is Bright…
In case you didn’t notice or don’t celebrate the Holiday, it just so happens to be Christmas here in the U.S. A. for the Addicts Team.
Bunny is hopped up on Chocolates (or so she claims) while Alissa is sneaking into the basement to break into the stash of Bunny Water while nobody is looking.
Short Story Long… We are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind, and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will sit in moderation. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!
No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return in full force tomorrow with any changes and info you have come to expect from us. SO ENJOY THE SILENCE! ( I know Alissa will be most grateful to not have to listen to Bunny’s chatter. Lol.)
And now on to some good old fashioned fun and AWWWWwwwwwwwwww moments. For those of you that do not know us Addicts very well….yet….here is a peak into a bit of our real lives with our favorite Christmas Moments.
A Bit o’ Bunny
I grew up in a location WAY up high in the mountain ranges so I have a LOT of snow, am used to a TON of snow, and miss it when there just isn’t any snow. Snow means slippery roads, sidewalks, and streets…not to mention snowball fights, forts, and just all out mischief. Many of times I am grateful this Bunny has some fluff. Helps when I fall down hard on my backside. Lol. My poor ears poke out, so gotta keep them nice and covered to avoid the frostbite. My wish is that we DON’T lose power on Christmas this year…again…like every other year before. It’s fun to hang out by Candlelight, but not that fun to try and cook a ham and cookies with them. Lol
Now, for my serious awww moment. I have lost many family members over the past few years. 19 in total. Not many of us left now (siblings, Mom, 1 Gramms), so holidays can be a bit rough. Out of all of them, I have been effected most by the loss of my Father. He always called me Christmas Day. It was his tradition with me. We had a falling out and didn’t talk much anymore, so this day was very precious to me. To get that call, hear his voice, and share our laughs (got my humor from him). He was also the one to pick out the fresh Christmas Tree for my family. So in losing him…well…I lost the love for Christmas. Bah Humbugged over it for many years. Didn’t want to even celebrate it. Stopped putting up decorations, making goodies, or even making an effort to do anything Christmas. This of course didn’t stop me from giving to others, just… kinda forgot about myself.
This all changed last year. A very dear and kind friend close to my heart did the most amazing thing ever. Hearing the story of my heartaches, they wanted to help make last year a fresh start. Bring the Love & Joy back into Christmas for me. First, a real tree showed up. First one I have had in a long time. I was overjoyed. What a sweet thought. It was beautiful. Made me tear up. Next…the most amazing thing possible anyone could do for me… My Dad owned beautiful guitars. Acoustic and Electric. Played and sang very well. I had one of his until I left home at a young age. I was never able to get it back. Even after he was killed. It saddened me because I loved to play because of him, but gave up. Just was too hard. Short story Long…this kindhearted friend, after much research, purchased a guitar that resembled the one my Father had and sent it to me for Christmas. I couldn’t speak when it arrived on my doorstep. Tears of such a magnitude I can not even describe rolled down my eyes when I opened it and didn’t stop (yes, even this silly crazy Bunny cries for real). For someone to do something so kind, thoughtful, and generous…it takes my breath away. I won’t ever forget that Christmas. Thank You SBE!!
This year Alissa, my bossum buddy (yah, I just said that. Lol) well she won’t let me get away with being down at this time of year either. She calls to harass…err…check up on me all the time. Being that pain in the arse that I love and adore. It is so amusing how someone you meet online can become as close to you as any family member ever could. She does so much for me, sometimes by just doing nothing at all. She is like me in many ways, gives right from the heart. Wants to just give and give and give to others. All about everyone else. Nothing for yourself. I think it is why we blend so well together.
This Holiday Season I challenge YOU to be selfless. Find someone to Pay It Forward To. Take no credit, just do it to do it. Touch someone’s heart in ways you would never imagine. Take it from someone who has been low, has had nothing, has gone without…the best gift you can EVER give…no matter the time of year…is one from the heart. One that speaks to another’s heart. All you have to do is listen and watch. Opportunities are all around you. To bring joy to another without expecting anything in return, it is the best gift ever! 🙂
Hoppy Holidays Everyone!
Alissa the Amazing
Wow my favorite Christmas memory. You know, honestly, I can’t say I have 1 particular favorite memory. I guess you could say I’m extremely lucky. I’ve always had amazing Christmases. From a young age I remember my parent’s house being decorated over the top with Christmas. We had Christmas trees in every room…each with a different theme…Christmas dishes, decorations EVERYWHERE and the best Christmas lights outside. (if you’re wondering where I get my love of Christmas from…this could be it! :)) And Christmas morning…well Christmas morning was (and still is) always magical!
I’m extremely blessed to have such a close family. We all celebrate Christmas together (even as we grow older). We open presents together Christmas morning (we never started until everyone was awake and downstairs), have breakfast together and just enjoy being together for that 1 magical day (yes I know very Brady Bunch!) And of course Christmas was never complete with out watching…the best movie ever…It’s A Wonderful Life. A Christmas tradition I won’t dare let my mom forget about!
Now that we’re all older, and my siblings have little ones the Christmas magic is still there. It’s the most amazing thing to see my nieces and nephews light up Christmas morning (yes we all spend Christmas morning together) when they realize Santa came! It’s like reliving my childhood all over again!
So to say I have 1 ultimate Christmas memory is essentially impossible for me. Because each and every Christmas has provided me with so many great memories and “warm fuzzy feelings” that to pick one is like trying to pick a favorite child….you just can’t do it! (although I totally know I’m my mom’s favorite!) Like I said earlier…I guess I’m just lucky because for me every Christmas is magical!
Of course I could talk about the Christmas with the Red Rider BB Gun 😉
So from our hearts and homes to yours, may your Holidays be filled with happiness and joy!! Be warm, be safe, and be happy!!
BUNNY & ALISSA
