A For Real Santa

 This is the for real Santa! His eyes are sky blue, pink cheeks, real beard. Thankyou to all the fake Santas who shopped and donated for my family's favorite local charity. You are amazing! Our hearts were warmed by the many contributions of food, toys and clothes. Thankyou.

   "and the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And  he puzzled
and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from the store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

  1. Awww I think my heart grew a little bit more!

  2. yes indeed and I wouldn't be thanking so many people if you hadn't taken the ball into your hands! You did "good" Hannah.

  3. That IS a great Santa and I think he had some awesome little elf helpers! JK

  4. What an adorable photograph. I wish I had more photos of my kids with Santa. I remember waiting in a long line with Matt to see Santa, but by the time we got to Santa, Matt was more than ready to leave!

    We found a place to donate many of our toys and other items in great condition, including stuffed animals in perfect condition, which most charities don't want. Now we're going to donate all of our best stuff there, because it goes directly to the people who need it. It also makes me realize how good we have it, how much stuff we have that we don't need and and how grateful I am for blessings. Friends are the most important gift and blessing of all. Friends like you, Sandy!
