Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Season’s greetings, beloved readers! We wish you and yours the happiest of happy holiday seasons and a bright New Year. We’ll see you in January – the 6th, to be exact – but thought we’d celebrate the end of a year with some photos from each Chick’s early beginnings.

  1. Leslie, Ellen, and Lisa! Those faces!! Vickie and Cynthia … you both DO look like elves! Kathy…someone should write a holiday jingle about Little Kathy Kringle. I’m pretty sure she pilfers things like cookies, eggnog, and probably jewelry.

    What a bunch of cutie-patooties!

  2. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to our wonderful friends and readers (you’re all both to us, of course). We Chicks love sharing our posts with you, and reading your sweet, thoughtful, and often funny comments. I’m keeping these photos for my scrapbook (and possibly future blackmail). Looking forward to a merry, book-filled new decade with you all!

  4. And being in Hawai’i, where it’s now only 7:30 a.m., I’m the late-late shift! Love all these photos, and love all you Chicks and readers! Happy holidays to all, and may the new year bring good things–health, happiness, friendship, book deals and lots of sales, and all that our hearts desire!

  6. Aww! Am feeling the spirit of the season in these comments. (Anyone else have the sense that we’re at our office holiday party–when does the dancing on tables start?)

    Hugs and candy canes for everyone! Wishing you all things merry and bright!

    1. As someone who hasn’t had an office Christmas party in over 30 years, I’m definitely happy to attend this one. I’m pretty sure I saw Leslie dancing on someone’s desk and playing her air sax. And is that Ellen giving Santa an earful over there? And don’t everyone look at once, but Little Kathy Kringle is over there spiking the punch. Me? Well, I’m gonna go see if they need any help.

  7. Ladies – thank you for a year of wonderful blog reading. It’s always a joy to see your latest post and read where your fertile minds have taken you & allowed us to come along. Thanks for making it merry and bright all year! (P.S. – is this the last time that Leslie actually wore a dress?)
