Christmas Safety Tips:
#1 Before baking Christmas cookies remember not to leave the bag of sugar at dog eye level and walk away... or you'll be sweeping the floor and have a hyper dog on your hands! (has happened twice to us)
#2 When making the aforementioned cookies please don't drink egg nog... salt ans sugar look to close to want to mix them up.
#3 When getting ready to cook your bird... remember to remove the giblet bag... it's not a bad of goodies left by Santa.
#4 If deep frying a turkey, you probably don't want to do it in front of the wood burning stove.
#5 Family dinners are FUN, especially if you sugar the kids up before you get there.
#6 If you want to never have to say the blessing at dinner ... remember to thank the main course for giving it's life for your dinner when you have to say the blessing the next time (WARNING this has the opposite affect in Pagan households)
#7 Clean up wrapping paper mess quickly... or Sammy might decide to dress up the cat in the ribbons.
#8 If trying out the "microwave" method of cooking the turkey.... please remember that you don't need to preheat the microwave.
#9 Driving to relative's houses with the whole family can be a rewarding experience...but not if you sugar the kids before you leave. (you do it right before you show up!)
#10 Great, Great Granny is full of wonderful stories she never gets to tell (...not surprising...) don't forget to ask during dinner how the holidays were when she was a child.
#11 Watch the over eating... the drive home won't be rewarding if JR is in the back throwing up half his dinner after eating too much.
#12 Don't forget your pets this holiday season... Rover likes Turkey too... and will take it right off the table if you look away for an instant.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
BE Well and Blessed Be...
