All I want is a hippopotamus for christmas

Well, it’s that time of the year again, and since Calvin only has one favourite Christmas song it’s only fitting that I share it with you.  For some reason most people think that Shirley Temple sings “i want a hippopotamus for christmas” but she doesn’t its actually Gayla Peevey; and I just happened to find an old video of her singing Calvin’s all time fav Xmas song…


So the next few days we will be off visiting family and close friends and I will most likely not post for a fews days, so I wanted to just say that…

I want to thank everyone that has dropped in, read, liked, commented and returned over the past year.  I hope to see you again in the New Year and wish everyone a joyful and safe Christmas/Holiday Season.


So whatever you prefer – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays BUT most of ALL be safe and merry and see you ALL in 2015!

M J and Calvin


Happy Holidays everyone!!

Today is Tuesday (in New Zealand) and its Christmas Eve.  I just want to say Merry Christmas to everyone and for those who don’t celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays 🙂


Calvin and I wish to all a safe and happy Holiday

We are going to take a few days off and spend time with family and friends, so see you back next week just in time for New Years :).

Just leaving you with a song that I grew up with.  As a kid I would wake on Christmas morning to hear this playing from the living room…
