You Better Watch Out!



This isn't your typical Santa with his turtleneck and goatee - but he's my Santa!
My Santa Daddy, that is. The model for this is my Dad. I always thought he could get a part time gig as Santa during the holidays but he's been happy just being Santa to all of us throughout the years.

I'm hoping the real Santa leaves me a snow free driveway Christmas morning. Phase one of our Christmas storm had me shoveling for a good part of the morning - and then the plow came by and buried the end again with even more - brought a tear to my eye - and not from it's beauty....

I hope you all have a wonderfully peaceful, magical and joy filled Holiday.

You to Deb. I've enjoyed your comments and friendship over this past year. Love this portrait of you Dad. It's special.

I hope there is no snow on Christmas morning for you to shovel, or some elf comes along in the early morning and shovels it for you. Leave some cookies and milk out, I'm partial to cutouts with frosting.

Have a wonderful Christmas Deb!
