Here comes Santa Claus

You'd better not pout, you'd better no cry
Santa Claus is coming to town!

Here they are as promised, the reindeer and Santa made by J in 1995! These are some of my very favorite Christmas decorations.

I love to look at all the designer stuff, but when you come to my place you get homemade decorations. We not only have the beloved reindeer and Santa (so are Dasher and Dancer in the front leading the sleigh or are they closest to Santa?) we have three versions of handprint wreaths, Santa Claus in various forms from years in Oklahoma, three very special angels that sing in our Angel Choir that sits on the coffee table and a very special angel in a gingham dress that sits atop our Christmas tree. She will be there every year, or until she falls apart, even when her creator can't make it home for Christmas (missing my boy this year).

Our tree is full of handmade photo ornaments of the kids through the years. It warms my heart to look at them all, and remember.

So Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year.
