would love to see a picture of this carved Santa

I picked up large individual letters that spell out NOEL at JoAnn Fabrics and am deciding whether to paint them in red, white and green or leave them the color they are which is brown like craft paper. I love that it's such a bold way to put it out there with the big letters you can't miss! LOL...as if anyone would miss knowing we celebrate Christmas at this house!!

I picked up one of those, also, along with the "Christmas Vacation" ornament.

I bought it at the same time, but a DVD of How The Grinch Stole Christmas the animated Special, and the Jean Shepard book A Christmas Story, which has the stories that made up the entire movie.

A colorized Blu-ray of "March of the Wooden Soldiers" (aka "Babes in Toyland," with Laurel & Hardy). Had to try out the new Blu-ray player!

How well did it look, and did it come with any great extras?
