Santa Baby

Ok, I've got a thing for Santa Claus.


It started in first grade.

Mrs. Rosendahl (first grade teacher extraordinaire) was into making crafts so she had the entire class of 6 year olds make Christmas ornaments that year. She put a big pile of Christmas images on the floor, had us all sit around it in a circle, close our eyes, and reach in to pick out an image.
I cheated.

I had spotted Santa and I wanted him.

This is the first ornament I hang on the tree each year.


I don't know what to tell you about the rest...
they keep accumulating...

Same scenario, in Kindergarten, except I wanted the deer. This boy Gary, who had a crush on me got it. You think he gave it to me? No!

Clearly he was NOT the one!

You look like the little girl on the ornament, with the long nightgown just like your mo made for the four of you!

"mo" should be "mom"...

I've got a thing for the old guy, too! (and firmly believe in his existence.) I started collecting Santa's when I first got married 23 years ago, and now have amassed a small army! (I even spot some of yours that are just like mine!) Ho, ho, ho!

Me too! It would seem Mrs.Claus has a lot of competition.
