Santa Came!!!!!


See our shirts????? We do BELIEVE!!! (Thanks to our friends, Judy and Charlie, for giving us these shirts from their visit to Santa Claus, Indiana.) We must have been really good little boys and girls this year --since Santa did come to our house this year!!!! He even ate ALL of the cookies, and drank all of his milk!!!!! (Must have been hungry!!) Here are a few pictures from our Christmas here in Fairfield Glade.





Here is a gorgeous close-up picture of part of our Christmas tree which George took on Christmas Eve. I love the colors in this photo.





Our tree, early on Christmas morning; Our weather here was rainy and windy! NO White Christmas for us--but Santa still managed to get here!!!





First, we had to check out all of the goodies in our stockings!!! Thanks, Santa!





Blogger friend, Shelley, (click HERE for her blog) sent us these two gorgeous Cardinal ornaments. Shelley KNOWS how much we love our backyard birds, including the Cardinals. Thanks Friend!!!!





My Sweetie gave me two new Willow Tree figurines for my collection. I love love love this one since it is ME. Her name is the ANGEL of HAPPINESS, free to sing, laugh, dance...create! Don't you love the birds on her arms???





I couldn't resist getting George this hat. It says: "Don't Forget My SENIOR DISCOUNT! (I know, I look too young for it!)"... Since we go to Kroger's every Wednesday JUST for our Senior discount, I felt this hat was perfect for him.... (Got myself one also--since I cannot let him be out-done!!! ha)





My second Willow Tree angel is the ANGEL of the HOME. Isn't she pretty??? A friend asked me about these angels, so I had to look at the Willow Tree Angel web page to get the link for her. Uh Oh----there are probably 20 more of these angels that I'd love to have. (I gave the link to George just for the fun of it!!!!! ha ha)





Here is our 'big' present from Santa (to both of us). We got a bread-maker.... Neither of us have ever had one---and we even tried it out on Christmas afternoon... We made some delicious sourdough bread. YUMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!




From beautiful Fairfield Glade, TN, these two lovebirds hope that you had as nice a Christmas as we did... NOW---we all have to change gears and switch to the New Year.... The time just keeps flying by... Pretty soon, it will be spring and we'll be waiting for a new crop of roses. My My!!!!

Hugs,

You are so right girl, time is a flying. I'm already looking at my backyard trying to figure out what I need to do to it.

Hi Betsy!
I loved the photos of you and George! I also love the name of Satas Claus, Indiana! What a pretty shirt.

You Wllow Tree angels are so perfect for you! I never saw the "Angel of Happiness" before, and i'm going to put that on my list for next year.

Your tree was lovely, but even more so is the joy and love in your eyes!

An awesome Christmas! I do love the photo of the lights on the Christmas tree-Just beautiful.

Jen said...

Betsy you guys just make me smile!!!
Love all your pictures -- I had no doubt that Santa would pay you guys a visit, even if you didn't have snow; but too bad he couldn't bring some for you.
I just saw something on tv the other night about Santa Claus Indiana-looks like a fun place.
Happy New Year to you and George. ox Jen

You two lovebirds looks so cute in your tee shirts, that is great photo. It looks like Santa was very good to you this year. The Willow Tree angels are beautiful.

Sorry you didn't get a white Christmas but maybe Santa will send a little of the white stuff your way very soon.

Love the photos, but the final one is so cute! How wonderful it is that the two of you found each other!! Ah the Angel of Happiness is especially beautiful and what a wonderful addition to your collection. I might just have to buy myself a bread maker from my Christmas money, I am intrigued by it. Do love the header photo!
