Here comes Santa Claus...

So, my cards have all been posted, the *tree's up & Santa just made his **pre-Christmas Eve visit...I'm starting to get a little bit excited ;)

Tilda & Friends have a Christmas/New Year theme for this week ~ it's our last challenge of the year & we'd love you to join in so have a peek here :)



Happy Wednesday peeps!



*I have seen some stunning pictures of tree's popping up on everyone's blogs over the past few weeks ~ I would love one of those glittery, colour-co-ordinated beauties in my living room. However, the Horror's decorate ours every year ~ I put up the tree {which is a sight in itself, we've had it years & I can't bear the thought of throwing it away!}, give them the decorations box & leave them to it. They've outdone themselves this year, one poor branch has 6 baubles hanging off it, every glittery piece of cotton wool covered plastic they've brought home from school over the years is hanging on it, the top half isn't decorated cos they can't reach & do you know what? I love every unco-ordinated, tacky bit of it!...



**Every year the local RNLI boys bring Santa round for a little pre-Chrimbo visit. The fabby thing about living in such a tiny place is the fact that they know not only which houses have excited little children in them, but also the names of each & every one of those kids. The downside is that non-believing 8year olds can instantly recognise whoever's got the suit on this year...
"Come & have a chat with me Caleb" said the dude in red to the little Horror.
"Yeah, Cals, go & say hello to Pete" said the big Horror, with an evil, I'm too old for this look in his eye.
"It's not Pete" said the little Horror. "Only Santa's that fat."

oo the little horror is priceless, enjoy the innocence while it lasts! fab little atc this week Leann, and I'm sure the tree is fabulous - ours is a real one that is now in it's 3rd year but still not very big, trouble is the dogs think that the drip tray is an extra water bowl in the lounge! hugs, annie x

Oh I love it!!!!! Your tree is th nicest one I've seen cos they put their little hearts and souls into it don't they. Our tree is a bit lop sided this year cos Kyla picked her spot and she just went for it!! So we have one branch that is quite frankly overloaded. Usually I am so fussy about it all having to be balanced etc but this year I had to sit on my hands as she was piling it on!! Your Santa story had me in fits, cos years ago, my dad was Santa at our local church Christmas fair thing and one of the kids from across the road from our house came and said to my dad (who was in full red suit and beard), as matter of fact as you like 'hello Uncle Bert!!!!
It's what it is all about. Big hugs to big and lil horrors and also to you, sweet cheeks xxxxxxx

Thanks Leanne, I was feeling a bit down in the dumps but after reading your post, I feel a bit better. The image of your tree is firmly stamped in my head and as for Santa Pete well, bless the little horror.
Fab ATC.
