He is not there for a job just to make extra money playing Santa, he is like all of us here at MMC who loves Christmas year round. He had a really sharp looking Santa suit that I wish I could have taken a picture of him with my camera but they are in the business to sell photos which I understand. I am waiting until I get the 3 grandchildren together before I pay to have it done. That is the first mall Santa I have met that is really good for the role! I felt we could have talked for hours and hours but after about nearly 20 minutes or so some kids showed up so we on. I invited him to MMC and I hope he will join us soon. He had some really wonderful stories to tell and I will wait for him to share them here with us. One of them will be about his Alaskan Cruise he plans to take to visit North Pole, Alaska.

We had a great day looking at all the decorations at the mall and of course, our visit with Santa!!!
this sounds like an awesome day!!!! And Im sure You Your grandbaby loved every second!!!

Adrian & I recently spent a day organizing it & getting it all in one room, documenting each piece in a spreadsheet, with what year it was, and if it retired, etc. it was a lot of work but very worthwhile. I had lost track of them a few years ago, when Adrian started picking up lots of them through Craigslist & eBay. Some were duplicated, and whatnot. And in the move, some ended up in totes in the basement cubby, some in the utility room, etc...now all are accounted for! Feels good!

Hope you have a great day, friend!!
That would be great if we did live close by! Good idea on organizing!

We went out for a seafood dinner to celebrate my 50th birthday and with that Lobster sitting in my tummy last night, I hit the couch and needless to say, I was done in no time flat~
Happy Birthday!!!

I'm getting in the Christmas Spirit! I've started shopping for gifts, wrapped what I can, & this morning I reserved a room for DH & me for our 20th wedding anniversary on the weekend before Christmas. We were married on December 18, close enough to Christmas!

We'll go to Dixie Stampede on Friday night with DH's parents (we have same wedding anniversary) & we always take DD with us too. They will take DD home with them & we'll get one day & two nights to ourselves to relax & unwind from DH's stressful job. I'm looking forward to it! Twenty years, but it seems like just a couple of years. Wow.
Happy Anniversary!!!

This time of the year, I am so thankful for MMC. I have 'met' so many wonderful people here. We are all so very different but share one common interest which brings us all together - it's great!

I remember last year I was so down in the dumps as soon as the evening hours approached on Christmas. I know that it was still Christmas Day, but I was finally facing the fact that it was almost all over. It's hard to look forward to something for months and months and then for it just to end. That's why Christmas Eve has been and always will be my favorite day of the year. The anticipation of Christmas is the best feeling ever. Anyway, I can remember when it hit midnight and I was seriously feeling so down. I logged on here and chatted with some of you who were feeling the exact same way. Most people really have no idea what the feeling is that we experience because they simply do not care about Christmas the way that we do. I started the countdown in my head even though it was a long 364 days away.

This time of year for me is filled with fun, excitement, joy, and anticipation. It's nice to share it with people outside of my family who truly appreciate it as much as I do! Heck - I get excited over wrapping paper, guys. I buy it like it's going out of style. I think I have enough wrapping paper at this point to last me 12 years.

Now that the season has officially 'kicked off' I really need to start my shopping and decorating! The decorations are coming out this weekend and the lights are going up - woo hoo!

Have a GREAT day, everyone!!
We are glad you are with us!

Jay, I got that one last year. It's lots of classical/semi-classical/international/medieval Christmas music, including the Nutcracker Ballet and The Messiah. Think classical radio station. I don't like all of it, but there is some very nice stuff in there.

Take it easy, Christmasstar. I think you're just overwhelmed and burned out for now. Take it easy, and we'll be here for you. Christmas will find you when you're ready.

I am going through the motions but the excitement seems to be eluding me.
Has anyone else felt this way?
I am going to bed, sorry guys.
