Deck The Halls

I'm in the throws of getting my little corner of the world Merry and Bright....

I wanted to take JJ and Philip Johnny Bob to see Santa today, but we searched high and low. No luck. So, as we passed through the gates here at the compound, I looked over and this is what I saw.....

Now I could have sworn Santa was supposed to be at PetSmart....and this irked me to no end. Hanging out with the boys when he was supposed to be working. I called and turned him in.

Then I decorated my tree....


This is what the finished masterpiece looks like...and my angel won't light up until I take her down, then I put her back up, and no lights....stubborn angel.

This is the view of my porch with the tree in the window.

Tomorrow we may look for Santa again...or not. I say or not, because someone told me he was downtown....


Looks like he has company!

I'm not sure which is more beautiful, your decorations or Santa attempting water ballet--or is it the man floating above him all sprawled out?

I hope you and Philip find a good Santa because I want to order one of the pictures.

I sent you the official thank you through snail mail, but I can't thank you enough for your help in this years fundraiser! You are the very best!

Looks like Santa is not quite in the holiday mood yet. How sad, because I've been good all year.

: ) Your tree is so pretty! I can't believe Santa swims in the pool at the compound. He really gets around : ). I LOVE love LOVE how pretty you made your corner of the world. I am trying to talk Gary into cutting our tree down tonight when he gets home from work. It's raining right now, so I might not have too much luck : (.

Your tree and front porch are gorgeous. congrats on getting it all done...what a stubborn angel though.
I still have not put away all my fall/thanksgiving stuff. Still have not cleaned the kitchen floor from having a housefull...I think it used to be white and now it is a dull grey/brown combo.
Can't wait to see JJ and Phil w/ santa. Hopefully you will find a good one around.
take care,
Suz

Well, of course Santa wanted to take a dip in the most famous pool in Texas! I'm suprised you didn't dive in with him and flirt a little bit.

Oh, I know that JJ & PJB were SO disapppointed that they were unable to see Santa! Poor little things:(

Your tree is SO pretty! I'm putting mine up next Saturday:)

Your little corner does look beautiful. I still haven't finished mine (hence:Procrastinator). I look forward to the pictures with JJ & PJB, hopefully the Jolly ole guy starts getting busy.
