This wonderful rendition of "The Christmas Fudge" song was performed by our very own trio of : Sue Wild, Renee Hermsen, and Jane Medenwaldt.

In case you would like to sing along......

Dashing from the malls
With groceries yet to buy, 
Lessons, work and housecleaning,
Life's so crazy! Why?

Bells on our telephone ring,
The machine will take the call,
We have not time for family or friends,
It drives us up the wall.

How are you? How's your life?
We really want to know.
Hope you're ready for Christmas,
Now maybe it will snow.

A day or two  ago,
We thought we'd make a treat,
For all our special friends-
A Christmas gift to eat.

Our intensions were top notch,
But our schedules would not budge,
Hence, here's this year's edition
Of Homemade CHRISTMAS FUDGE.
