Baby sloth hopes you all have the best Christmas ever, and so do I.
“Hail, the heaven-born Prince of peace! Hail the Sun of righteousness! Light and life to all he brings, Risen with healing in his wings. Mild he lays his glory by, Born that man no more may die, Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. Hark! the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King.“
Because it is such a very warm and fuzzy time of year, it seems an appropriate time to thank each one of you from my heart for helping keep this insignificant little blog afloat. Without you guys, I’d be just like that hypothetical tree falling in the forest with no one to hear it. So, thank you.
I wish you all a most blessed Christmas, one abounding in peace, joy and merriment, and a new year filled with more of the same.
Well, my friends, Thanksgiving has passed and that means that the Christmas season is officially upon us. Carols, nativities and Salvation Army bell-ringers will be out in full force. Warm fuzzy feelings will abound.
It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but finding the right gifts for everyone on your list can often be anything but wonderful. The FBB wants to help lighten the load just a bit. This year I am once again compiling a collection of the weirdest and coolest gift ideas for the baseball fans in your life. Because I want you all to be able to relax and enjoy your gingerbread cookies and Bing Crosby albums this holiday season.
Well everybody, it’s Christmas eve-eve. If you have preparations left to accomplish, you had better get on it. If not, you had better be enjoying the wonderfulness of the season to the utmost of your capabilities (much like members of the New York Mets in this awesome photograph. That’s pitcher Mike Pelfrey in the Santa suit.) We are going to be building a garfoose out of snow in the Kipps camp today. I just encourage everyone to get out there and have fun and be filled with love and joy this Christmas!
Here’s a tune to get you going. This isn’t the one I really wanted. Oh well.
I thought I should share a photograph of the completed snow-garfoose. Here he is:
Welcome to part two of the Fair Base Ballist’s 2009 Christmas shopping guide! December 25th draws ever nearer, so if you haven’t finished (or even started) your shopping yet, it’s time to take action. Fortunately, I’ve compiled some more gift suggestions to help everyone out. You’re welcome.
