Pink Elephant

Pink elephants… I have been thinking about pink elephants.  Do you think about pink elephants? Their trunks are cute, and their feet are huge.  Sometimes, they have beady eyes and big eyelashes. Oh! You don’t think about pink elephants.  I probably wouldn’t either if there wasn’t a challenge not to think about pink elephants.  You [...]

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
