Santa Claus is comin’ to town…

 …and he is watchin’ your every move!!

So, the Santa’s are all out – for the most part.  I am sad that there will be no “Santa Tree” this year, but the cats are altogether too interested in the tree that I use… I fear for my Santa’s well-being!  And, I am afraid if we have “Santacide” that there will be no visit from that Jolly Old Elf – except from the coal truck!!

So, I have my step-back cupboard filled with my Santa’s and there are a few others standing as sentinels in my family room!

Yes, Santa is watching us, with a multitude of eyes!

Some of my “Tree Santa’s” are watching from the shelves here… I am not sure they like it as much, but it works!

I started my Christmas shopping yesterday.  I got all of one present crossed off my list.  I am certainly glad that my Christmas knitting is having greater success!  I guess I just need to head downtown for a day and get everything crossed off my list – and hang the sales.  What I pay in extra for the items I have, I believe I will save in gas driving from one store to another to find the items advertised. 

Here is some retailer brilliance – they must have ONE object in stock per store from the sale flyers.  There is a way to endear your customers to you.  Phoey on all of them, I say!  Downtown Holland will benefit from my frustration yesterday.  Fortunately, I have only a few items on my list that I need to get. 

I have been enjoying our tree this year a tremendous amount!  How pleasant it is to sit and knit, listening to Christmas music.  The hours of knitting have certainly been a blessing.  Decorating the tree this weekend was also a very nice thing to do.  It was a good reminder to me of how much my teenagers savor the season as well.  I heard some interesting comments from their mouths as they remembered ornaments they made for me.  I was sad to hear that the ornaments they made for their dad that were sent with him do not grace the tree at his house.  I cannot imagine a tree without these tiny treasures.  They warm my heart!

I am off to get a wee hair cut… be blessed in your day today!  Tonight I have Heidi’s Christmas Concert…check here for the review tomorrow!

  1. Your decorations are beautiful, and I love your tree! Thank you for your posts that show how much you are really enjoying Christmastime. It’s a nice break from all of the moaning and complaining everyone else seems to be doing.

    Enjoy!

  2. Is that a cardboard old-fashioned village scene on the top shelf in your middle picture? If so, I’m pretty sure I have the same village, which my parents bought for me in kindergarten.
