A Texas Christmas Carol

With Christmas right around the corner I thought we would do Christmas Texas style. I was born and raised in Texas and when I found this I just had to share it. Hope it brings a smile to your face. I know it made me giggle.

Thanks. I really like the new Christmas back ground. I also thought you might like the bears. HaHa! Inside joke. At least these bears look friendly. Just don't throw any rocks at them. Okay?

LOL, I won't throw rocks at these bears. They are Christmas bears. Now if they were raccoons, I couldn't promise nothing.

Very funny. My only problem is with nine cowboy boots. What do you do with the extra boot? Unless you the legs. But I'd love to see a poison in an oak tree!
