Monday love

Another edition of Monday love….

A Quote: ‘Santa Claus has the right idea.  Visit people once a year.’ Victor Borge

Something Personal:  Santa was in town a little early — at the Shoppe of Vinings.  This has been an annual tradition at the shop for well over 10 years, and for me, three years.  It really is a wonderful time and this Santa is the genuine real-deal!  He remembers all the kids that return to see him every year, he snuggles with the babies, and he listens intently to the many lists of coveted toys and treasures.   I give him credit – it’s not an easy job to be so loved…… and so, um, what’s the word…… utterly terrifying??

Here’s how my Jake feels about Santa…….. (Don’t worry, no children were harmed during the taking of this photograph).  😉

And then there’s my Kylie-Bear……

Of course, just two short years ago I couldn’t even get Kylie to go near Santa so I know Jake will come around.  There were so many kids that were screaming, crying, and reaching out to their parents.  Is it bad that it’s kind of cute because we know that one day they will “get it?”   When these children get back in their parents arms the crying immediately stops and they look at the parents (and Santa) with this big pouty lip and curious face as if to say: WHY?????????   Oh to believe again……

(For those that are looking for their Santa Pics, they will be available for viewing beginning November 29th)

Cool Shopping Find:  If you’re an early bird holiday shopper then you’ll love these fun stocking stuffers from the Land of Nod. The best part is – FREE SHIPPING!!

Here are a couple of my favorites.  Remember these guys??? So classic!

And how fun are these Scribble It Postcards?  Kylie would probably use them all up in one day and want me to send them right away to Nana, Dzia-Dzia, Grandpa, and Gramma Gail!  🙂
