OH NO! Not Coal......I WAS good....


All day Christmas Eve, Eve, I sang Santa Baby and waited to see what Santa would place in my new stocking.
I was Good, Really good...


I found this in my backyard, right by the edge of the pool deck...OH NO! he did bring me a piece of COAL.


There were three ways this could have  appeared in our yard.

1. Our back yard has a hidden coal mine

2. Bob was hiding it waiting to sneak it in my stocking

3.  The brats kids next door stood on top of their fort and chucked it in the yard trying for a splash down in the pool.

Number 3 gets my vote! NOT that they have done anything like that before. last time it was oranges...

Maybe the neighbors kids got a visit early from Santa and they were throwing away their gifts :)
One of the guys at work got a big lump of coal for part of his exchange gift. I think he enjoyed it more than his real gift

Wow... I got one just like it! Was I on the naughty list? No... Just kidding. Mine was smaller, by the time Santa arrived in Missouri, his gifts were lighter! Giggles early this morning!

If your suspicion about Nr. 3 turns out to be correct, then you know where you can return the coal ;)

Morning MS
We are 200% sure the coal had nothing to do w your behavior and we vote for #3 too....but just to be sure I think Jake and Baby need to do a little digging there could be gold too
Hugs
Madi your bfff

Rebecca said...

Maybe it was a meteor! I am certain you were good and it was intended for those kids next door! :)

TexWisGirl said...

monster kids. i like the meteor theory. :)

Amy Burzese said...

I vote for #3 also, because I know that Bob would never get you a lump of coal. (It is kinda funny though, lol)

Chatty Crone said...

I vote for number 3 as well - kids -what can you do? I love Taylor Swift?????????? Hope you had a great Christmas. sandie

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

I too like the monster/brat kids next door theory, Sandra, cause we fellow bloggers know that you are always GOOD. Hope that Santa left you at least one or two surprises.

DawnTreader said...

But Santa knows that you really like to burn things, Sandra... :)

Blackberry Lane said...

I'm betting on the kids, too.

Cranberry Morning said...

I think you were in the path of a meteorite and were just barely missed - just because you were SO good this year!! lol

SweetMarie said...

Probably the brats, I mean those cute kids. LOL I hope you got something good in your stocking. :)
Hope your day was happy!

Ela said...

This is a very original gift perhaps a meteor ;)

Hmmm, don't think it was Bob....
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did.
Love your New Year's header.
Have a Happy and prosperous new year you two.

I am sure you must have gotten something better than a few lumps of coal.

Gail said...

I knew you were too good for Santa to bring you coal.

Susannah said...

MO COAL FOR MY SANDRA...SWEET GIRL THAT SHE IS! It was the brats ......they should be ashamed!

Dee said...

I like Ann's answer LOL...I Love Santa Baby...and Taylor Swift.

SquirrelQueen said...

Maybe it fell out of the bag Santa has stuffed with coal for all those bad kids, he didn't mean for you to get it in your stocking however. Other than that I would go with #3, they were throwing away their gifts.
You are a funny lady.

Terri Buster said...

I know you've been good Sandra...Bob would never put coal in your stocking! :)

George said...

I just knew that Santa couldn't have brought coal to put in your stocking!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I just knew you were a good girl and would never get coal in your stocking! My first thought when I saw the photo was that it looked like a meteorite.

EG CameraGirl said...

Hahaha! I'm sure of one thing, Sandra - it wasn't Santa. I KNOW you've been a good girl. ;))

Logan U3A Camera Club said...

Ask the kids to bring you some more to make it worth while. You can then sell it back to their parents.

magscorner said...

Well, sweet Sandra if you ask me that is one of those gifts that needs to be returned. We know you were good all year so that gift is a mistake! Hugs!

barbara l. hale said...

LOL! I'm surprised I didn't get any of that. Hope you are feeling better soon!!

Chatty Crone said...

Take care of yourself and rest. sandie

Debby@Just Breathe said...

We have some new neighbors with 3 boys and I can't believe what they throw into our yard!

Michaele said...

I was just SURE it was #2. Hope u get to feeling better.

Catherine said...

Clearly the coal was not meant for you my friend. ;)
Hope you and your sweetie had a most wonderful Christmas.
Enjoy your blog break - I hope your back gets feeling better!
