Santa Claus is coming to town.

Whew! We had our family get together today, everyone has been fed and here and gone already. All of the presents from Santa are wrapped. The trees are all decorated. We have our traditional Christmas eve dinner stuff in the pantry. (Chips and salsa con queso for the curious. It all started when we were hungry and there was nothing but a gas station open after church on Christmas Eve.)

We are ready for lift-off!

A few of my many, many Santas. Dave calls the Rushton Santa "the chuckie Santa." Welll, he is a *little* scary. The teeny tiny one is marked Denmark on the inside. He was a rummage sale find late this fall.

These guys are paper mache with cotton beards, marked Japan, and bought at the flea market this fall. There are a few more, but, hey, I was in a hurry! My family was on the way here.

Tree number 8, the wire tree, the hardest to photograph! It always stays on top of my china cabinet, and I change the ornaments with the seasons. This year I put my tiny special ornaments on it, the indents, the lanterns, the candles, and a tiny pickle. Do you see it? I have a pickle on every tree.

And with that, Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!!! I hope Santa brings you everything you are wishing for.


  1. Merry Christmas, Friend! Your house is the most festive that I saw this year!

  2. Merry Christmas Sarah! Love your tree and I did spot the pickle!

  3. I love that Santa collection! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!


Hi there. What say you?
