Christmas is coming - ready or not

The collage is a very small portion of my Santa collection. We don't mean to start these collections, they just seem to happen. The 2nd from the right on the bottom is one of my favorites, a gift from my daughter. The left bottom corner is another favorite, also a gift from Wendy. This one stays out all year. I have a bedroom decorated in American flag and eagle 'stuff', so this Santa gets to stay in it all year. Some years I forget to move it to be with the others Santas.
Jimmy and me the first Christmas after we met. We were not married yet.

Jimmy and me in 2000. It was our first year in the first house we built. Not sure why I did not do this again in 2006, for our first year in the house we built then, which is our home now.

The bottom ornament was made by a dear friend's mother. She is no longer with us, but the ornament reminds me of her and her daughter as I decorate the tree every year. As you can see by the date, I have had this one a while.

Merry Christmas to all!!!!
