Christmas anyone?


I ran across this picture tonight and thought it is so sweet. So I wanted to share it with you.  I don't know where I got it but I have had it for several years.
Isn't he adorable?
I am starting Christmas presents already 
because 
I will be traveling back to my home town to see my precious son & his family.  It will be the first time I have been back to Iowa for three years.  I miss my grandson, son, daughter-in-love & my sister.  They live within 35 miles of each other so it will be a great time to catch up & fall in love with them all over again. 
(I, however, am not looking forward to the cold!)
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday.
How about you?
Are you thinking....Christmas yet?
I have entered an ornament exchange so my mind is going in all directions.
I hope you enjoy the Santa.
I think he is adorable.
Blessings to all & try to take the time to let me know what you Christmas plans will be for this year.

A lovely photo indeed! This is my favorite time of year I just adore the holidays, especially Christmas!

I'm so happy that you get to visit with your family, and see your grandson, son, daughter-in-law and sister. I am fortunate that my family all lives here in the area.

Love and hugs to you!

Thanks for the sweet Santa image, Sharon! I have started to work on a Christmas present a few days ago. It's a sewing assemblage that I make for a dear friend. I love to create handmade gifts for good friends and family. Hugs, Julia

Sharon, I'm so glad you liked the star tutorial. I have to say, I think I feel just like that Santa ...lol... I work in merchandising and have been setting up Christmas for 2 days, I am tired and a bit grumpy about Christmas. I just need more crafting time!

I meant to say I need to feel "more" like that Santa, he looks like a golly guy, I'm the ones who's grumpy.
