Santa Claus is coming to town

So be GOOD for goodness sake.....................
I hadn't thought about posting this until I saw another friend post about Santa pictures. I had these framed years ago, never was crazy about how they were framed for the price they charged. So one day I hope to reframe it and add some pictures of the "grands".
These are several pictures of years of sitting on Santa's lap. There are picture of the old Lazarus Santa, he was always the best. There are some of my second son with his Christmas catalog. He did that two years in a row. There is a picture of the same son chewing on my key chain with the big letter "D" . He cut his first tooth that day. There is even a picture of my youngest adopted son with his birth sister before I even met him. There is a picture of the same son with his college age sister. (That Santa was a girl....shhhhh) There are some that have that yellow tint from the old instant photos.
All to be cherished, for sure.
When my kids grew up and asked if Santa was real this Mama always said that Santa was "real" in my heart. I would never say that he wasn't. Trust me, the truth being held back didn't hurt them one bit. They are still believers and passing it on to their "littles" .
It isn't Christmas til I get that butterfly feeling in my tummy. Do you get that, or am I a bit wacky. This morning I had that feeling. I love it. To me it is all about the giving and celebrating with family and friends.......and I do know the reason. Merry Christmas my friends. (Oh my I almost have 100 of you now........oh how sweet that is)

Hi Debby, I love the pictures. How sweet! I have a photo of my teenage son in a Santa Suit, with his hat and mustache off. He was volunteering at Adopt a Pet. People brought their pets to take photos with 'Santa'. It's one of my most favorite photos of the two of us.

Well, I didn't get here in time for Christmas, but I wanted to stop by and wish you the merriest of Christmas seasons. I hope the day itself was wonderful and I hope that the coming week is full of joy. May you find laughter with friends, affection and joy with family, short return lines, and lots of great deals during after-school shopping. I want to thank you for your happy blog and for dropping by mine. You have made my year richer and fuller and sweeter. Merry, happy, joyous New year!! Much love, Relyn
