My Christmas Babies

Today I want you to meet some of my Christmas babies --which guard the Christmas tree and live in our home during the Christmas season.  Above is Frisky Snowman.... Frisky is a a great grandson of Frosty...  I have to keep the house VERY COLD ---so that he won't melt....  (NOT!!!! ha ha )




Here is one of Santa's helpers named  Santa Simon Edgar---after my Daddy... Daddy was my Santa ---and one year,  when I was a little girl,   I asked for a sliding board to go with my swing set (which I already had) from Santa.   BUT--as you can imagine,  Santa had trouble getting that big sliding board down the chimney... SO---he had to leave me a note saying that my sliding board was on the side porch.... (Poor Daddy Santa had to somehow manipulate that big sliding board so that it would somehow fit on the side porch.... What a great Santa!!!!)




This little guy is Theodore the Bear.... Theodore has a big job in my household... He is in charge of  making sure that all of the Christmas Babies BEHAVE and don't bother the ornaments on the tree.... One year,  Theodore caught Frisky trying to eat Santa's cookie and drink his milk....  Frisky got a WHOOPIN'  for sure!!!!




Here is  Edith Marguerete  Snow-WOMAN....  She is named after my sweet Mama  who died in 1991 at the age of 91....  Miss Edith smiles like Mama used to ---and she tries hard to make Frisky behave...




This is Roly Poly Santa since he loves to EAT.... He ate so much this past year that I had to buy him a new belt----and a new box to keep him in during the year...  Don't know where he gets the food,  but he just keeps growing wider and wider...  He says that he is growing so that he can join his Papa Santa on the sleigh one year on Christmas Eve. 




Finally,   one of my favorite babies (don't tell the others please) is Bertha the Christmas COW..... Isn't she just a hoot?????  Have you ever seen a Christmas Cow before????  Bertha feels pretty SPECIAL -----and she enjoys flirting with Theodore.... Hope she and Theodore don't get TOO close... We don't want any little CowBears running around here!!!!!

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my Christmas Babies.....  As you can tell,  I turn into a child at Christmas!!!!!   Oh how I love Christmas!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Those babies would certainly brighten up a room. Adorable!

They are all cute and different babies. I like Theodore the best. I bet he would enjoy hanging out with Birthday Bear. Do they all sit under the tree and come alive at night when all good little girls like you are fast asleep?

Linda P said...

Your Christmas babies made me smile, which I needed because I'm just going to visit the dentist for some treatment! I guess you made them - they are very cute!

Mr. Bill said...

Cute!!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Your christmas babies are all very special and cute. We are all children at heart only sometimes we try to hide that part of us. :)

Linda G. said...

What adorable Christmas babies! I enjoyed looking at the pictures, but most of all I liked the stories you related for each one.

Neal said...

Very cute! You have a wild imagination. :)

Sandra said...

sweet little babies, I like cows so that makes bertha my favorite.

Dorothy said...

You really DO have a vivid imagination, Betsy! My favorite is Theodore!!! (Getting snow here this morning).

Snap said...

Betsy, all your stuffed Christmas babies are adorable. Would be hard for me to pick a favorite!

linda m said...

I love your Christmas Babies. They are all so very cute; don't think I could pick a favorite.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh, they are so darn cute and funny Betsy.
But thanks to you, now I feel neglected because I DON'T have a Christmas cow!!!! ;)

Mary said...

Cute! Did you make Theodore? I have that same bear pattern and one Christmas I made them for all the kids in the family. I still have a couple I keep for myself :-) Never too old to own a bear...or two.

Lynn said...

Betsy, I love all your babies. You wrote this post so much like Terry and I 'talk" to our snow people or our 'kids" (non snow teddys or dolls) hehe. Love their history! Nope never saw a snow cow before. Too cute. Maybe if you do get some snow later today, the group can play in it a little bit, hehe. Blessings.

TexWisGirl said...

love that they all have names and their own personalities to match! :)

Linda said...

All of them are so cute, and I'll bet they enjoy hanging around together under the tree at Christmas after being separated the rest of the year. Seriously, did you make all of these? You could go into business!

Chatty Crone said...

Betsy they are all cute and I love the way you named and described them - I think my favorite was Santa Simon Edgar! sandie

CottonLady said...

Oh, Betsy, your little Christmas babies are so cute! Each one is special to you, I can tell!!
I love Christmas too.

Blessings!

Peggy said...

I love your Christmas babies and hope you put me down for a Cowbear if things should get frisky around there. LOL

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What a wonderful Christmas babies collection! :-)

Kay said...

So cute. I love the names you have given to them. Ben and you would have gotten along very well. He had a bunch of toys from his childhood that he'd kept. He had given them all such cute names. I gave them to his sister the last time she was here because I know they will mean a lot to her.

Hugs,
Kay

From the Kitchen said...

This is "for your eyes only": I'm in love with "Bertha"! The others are adorable but, you're right, who has ever come across a Christmas cow? Please don't let this get out amongst the "babies"!!

Best,
Bonnie

Mama-Bug said...

How sweet Betsy! I've enjoyed meeting all your Christmas babies!

Pam said...

My favorite is the green teddy.

SmilingSally said...

Hi Betsy,

I haven't been around for a looong time. I was in the hospital for 70 days!

I have not seen a Christmas cow before, but she sure is pretty; no wonder she's your fav.

Pearl@serenitycove said...

Cute! I love how you have given them all fitting names:)

Fred Alton said...

Betsy, What an imagination! Christmas Cow-Bears, indeed. Bah-Humbug, I say. Hahahahahaha. (REALLY - I loved meeting your Christmas characters, everyone!!!)

imac said...

Wonderful Christmas toy show Betsy.
Love the seasons Header too.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Bertha wins my vote! It has just started snowing this morning here at my little farm (10:58 am Central). Hope you have a good day and stay warm.

Chip Allen said...

Mom always has a bunch of these on display this time of year. This post reminds me of Christmases at home!

Jo said...

Oh I just love your Christmas babies, Betsy. And I've never heard of a Christmas Cow - I love them ALL. My dad was also always Santa. (a behind-the-scenes one when we grew up but a dressed up one when the grands were growing up!) Thanks for sharing these beauties with us! Blessings, Jo

Ginny said...

YES, Bertha is definitely my favorite, too, she is a scream!!! My next favorite is Mr. Patchhwork Roly Poly, and the the first snowman with the duck (goose)? I have no special thing that I actually collect for Christmas, but when I see what others post, I wish I did! I just have different things, which I will post sometime this month. We're to get four inches of snow tonight, ick!!

Happyone:-) said...

It was nice to meet your Christmas babies!
No, i've never heard of a Christmas cow, maybe that's why she's special. : )

HolleyGarden said...

How adorable! I loved hearing about each of their personalities. No, I don't think I've ever seen a Christmas cow before, but I love your Bertha!

Terry and Linda said...

Cute post, Betsy!

I enjoyed seeing all your Christmas babies, but you also have a bigger one that will not seat under the tree.

Denise said...

I love your Christmas babies Betsy, lovely collection!

Mamma has spoken said...

Ah what a beautiful collection you have there Betsy! I'm sure they keep you company during the season.

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Such a lovely collection of sweet Christmas babies !
I like to fill the base of the tree with teddy bears, rabbits and cats, I hardly ever put the gifts underneath, unless they are small.
Did you get snow ?
Sure looks like snow :)
Hugs,
~Jo

Jen said...

Some fun friends and memories

Karin said...

You have your very own Toy Story!! The second one looks like our little grandson - he wants a santa costume and he's about that size, lol! Cowbears indeed!! Be careful!

Daisy said...

They are all so cute, Betsy. Nothing wrong with being a child at heart--especially at Christmas time. :)

Susie Swanson said...

Oh those are adorable and I love them all. Did you make them? I have a few sentimental ones I get out every year and the grands love them.. Your blog is so pretty and your header is like a Christmas Card.. Blessings, Susie

Carletta said...

Such a fun post Betsy!
I love Theodore and Roly Poly.
I think we might both share a love of our Christmas decorations. I know I wasn't feeling very Christmasy until I opened one of the boxes and saw all the goodies I treasure inside. Bringing that out makes me smile.

Rose said...

You have a houseful already! hehehe I just have cats, and I cannot keep my tree skirt spread out for love nor money. and I dare not put a present under it...it would end up open before the first night was out.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Hi Betsy, thanks for introducing us to your cute little Christmas babies. I love Christmas, too, and what better time to bring out the inner child. Take care!

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

YOur Christmas babies are adorable! I don't think I've ever seen a Christmas cow now that you mention it! But she is adorable.

Diane said...

Very cute Christmas babies Betsy. I'm sure they add a lot of personality to your home at Christmas. Diane

carolina nana said...

I love Christmas decorations as you can tell by how long it takes me to get them all up each year.
Your babies are as cute as can be. Are you all getting snow yet ?? We are but they say it isn't going to amount to anything, we'll see !!
It is almost 30 degrees colder tonight than at this same time last night.
Blessings

I absolutely loved meeting your Christmas babies. I know of no other person who has named their Christmas babies like you have. Each one has a special personality. I loved getting to know them.

CUTE!

Twilight Man said...

Ha Ha Ha Ha! I had a good laugh at your lines and imagination! You should write children's story books as you could make me tickled and happy. I love your toys and cute green bear! They are priceless beings to keep your heart young.

You bet, I was busy like a bee! I am back Betsy. My love to you and hubby!

Loren said...

Oh Betsy...Your babies are adorable and I have to say I loved your description of each one of them! I can only imagine how they LOVE YOU!!!! :)

That Bertha IS a hoot ♥ She is just precious!! Just Like You!

Catherine said...

Isn't it fun pulling the Christmas decorations out and relooking at all your fun and beautiful cherished items? Sometimes you forget all the pretty things you have.

That's my most favourite part of decorating.

I have a santa that was my mom's and every year my two daughters try to arrive at an agreement as to who will inherit it!!!! Oh my!

SquirrelQueen said...

All of you babies are so adorable but when I got to Bertha I had to laugh out loud. She is so cute!

I love your story about your Santa Daddy. the sliding sounds like something my dad would have done.

With all these sweet Christmas babies around your house must be a very happy place.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

They are all adorable, Betsy! It is so wonderful to take out the favorite decorations of Christmas every year and relive all their special memories!
