Christmas Siggies - A to I

Yesterday, I FINALLY got my Christmas Siggies!!!

I looked them over - that took a good hour.
I then put them in alphabetical order - that took another good hour... had to oooh and aaah some more. *grin*
Then, I "had" to go downstairs and have supper.... unfortunately, and leave my beauties all alone, upstairs. :-(
Then, I went on my web page to see if I got an (extra) Special Siggie - that took about a 1/2 hour, as I had to F & F them, again. F & F, you ask? Well, that's Fondle and Feel, of course! LOL

Then, I took pictures of a whole bunch of my favorites and UNFORTUNATELY, there were too many. I then had to (painfully) delete some and then, select the ones that I would upload here.

I'm sorry if your Siggie's picture isn't on my blog, but I had to make several tough decisions... They're ALL GORGEOUS, actually!!!! *grin*

And THEN, I blogged about them, yesterday evening... could only do about 1/2 of them, as it was around 11 p.m., by the time I had finished! Sooooo, you could say that I played with my Christmas Siggies, ALL evening! *grin*

Anyhow, here's the list, from A to I:
