So even though last week I sort of felt like a Scrooge, I still couldn’t get my fill of Christmas songs.  Hey, it happens! :).

One song that just cracks me up is “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”.

And of course it is such a catchy song that it kept getting stuck in my head.  I went all around both work and home singing this song.  I’ll bet I was every bit annoying!

Since Christmas Eve was Saturday we got Friday off {one of our paid holidays}.  We ran a few errands and then went to my mom and dad’s house to pick up presents to bring to our house.  When we got home there was a note on the front door saying Fedex had left a package.  Hubs just grinned and wouldn’t tell me what it was other than, “a present”.

So I went on about my business carrying stuff in the house and placing presents under the tree.  Hubs walks in and says, “I can’t wait any longer, you’re getting a present early.”

Um…. OK…….

Not gonna lie, I was a little nervous something was going to jump out at me…

Of course, it was a Hippo… I should have guessed, right?!?!

Isn’t he cute!

I got my Hippopotamus!!

So the next day {Christmas Day} I was walking around singing Alvin & the Chipmunks, Please Christmas Don’t be Late.  I was singing the part about wanting a Hula Hoop… hahaha… Wonder what’ll show up next Christmas… j/k Hubs… I don’t need one! 🙂  Although it might be a good, fun workout…  Oh well, Christmas is over 🙂

  1. I recall myself singing about wanting a hippo a couple times as well! But, I didn't get one. Don't really need one either. However!!…I wouldn't mind seeing one in person somewhere, on a safari or something. 🙂

  2. That's great but I ma a little mad that I am now singing that freaking song!

    Have a very happy and safe New Year and thanks for linking up!
