2 great days...and my Santa...

Oh how I LOVE this picture. The cute old Santa in the middle, was given to me by my Dad. I will never forget waking one morning, and having this Santa snuggled in my bed with me. My Dad had come home from work, and brought my sister, and I, Coca Cola Santa. I believe it was when he had the Coke plant in either California or Idaho. Mom, if your reading this, do you remember? My Dad has since passed. I miss him more than my words could ever express. Every year when the Christmas decorations come out, this Santa is always the one thing I am excited to see. I have to say this is my very favorite Christmas decoration.

I feel really good about the last two days. I have been able to mark off a huge portion of my To Do: Christmas list. I even got the stocking stuffers yesterday. This seems like one thing I wait until the last 2 days or so to get done. I feel much more relaxed now that the bulk of things are done. :) Maybe I'll even watch a Christmas movie this evening.
What good Christmas shows have you seen so far this year? Suggestions are always welcome! :)

Your house looks so warm and festive! I love the fireplace... you don't see many of them in AZ anymore. Sad.

I watched the "Last Holiday" and I thought it was pretty cute.

I am about to watch Mamma Mia! I'm so excited. I haven't seen it yet!
