A little ghost from Christmas past...


Is this about the worst Santa you've ever seen?
Isn't this a happy looking boy?
(my hubby with Santa when he was 5 years old)

My daughter is all grown up now and long past the days of waiting in line to see Santa. In a way I miss it - the excitement and magic of it all. Christmas is different without having little ones around; different but good. When I look at the picture above it makes me smile. I doubt that this "Santa" would cut it with kids today - they're much too wise to fall for a quilt-batting-beard and a pillow-under-the-coat padding (not that hubby wasn't wise, I just think we were more naive when we were young).

PS: I still believe in Santa. <]:o) Savor the magic!!!

Believing in Santa makes it more magical. My son is still a little too young but he's getting the idea. Great photo!

That Santa does have an evil look in his eyes!
LOL!
Maybe I'll go hunt up some pix of the kids with Santa from when they were little.
