Pulling out Christmas decorations that hold memories of another life or lifetime is one holiday travel worth taking. :> Hope your Christmas was wonderful!

Koralee, my Christmas was enchanting and one that I will never forget. Blogging was a huge part of it all, and the friendships that have resulted from it. I hope every day of the new year brings you joy and peace. You are a beautiful soul and God bless you!!! Anita

How wonderful and neat that Santa from your childhood! I hope yours was too!

Funny, how much more we appreciate the things of our childhood as the years go by. My brother and I still have small nativity sets we received at Sunday School when we were little. (Mine glows in the dark!) Precious treasures...
Love your vintage snowman. Happy you're back!

Happy New Year, Koralee!
Thanks for stopping by my post!
This ole Santa reminds me of my childhood ornaments~ Such a jolly ole man :o)

Rachael and Juan (last two on the right of our family photo) are getting married just before school is out. We're so happy for them!

We go back next Monday (Jan. 4) also.
The kids are always tired even though they've had a many days off... but they're so excited to see each other!

My husband and son are snowshoeing tomorrow (it's 8°F right now ... hope it warms up !!!)

Many, Many Blessings, Koralle, for you and all your loved ones ♥
