The Year of Big Santa

Thursday, December 4, 2008....

Since I'm hosting Christmas this year, I plan on pulling out all my Christmas paraphernalia. This includes, dishes, napkins, nutcrackers and nutcracker place cards (just to name a few). I even plan on hiding the pickle ornament for the surprise gift under the tree, not sure what the surprise gift should be yet.

Years ago, my dad (very crafty) made a HUGE larger than life-size plywood Santa. Personally, poinsettias and mantel decorating have always been my thing, but I inherited the Santa and he's been in the garage for several years. Just collecting dust. Poor Santa.

Well, this is the year, I believe, that Santa will be escaping the garage and taking his rightful position on the front lawn. I figured this is the easiest way to welcome people to the house Christmas day. Of course, I haven't figured out the logistics of getting him down from the ceiling or lighting him up at night.

I know my dad will be happy to see Santa again, but wonder if the neighbors that had the 15 chickens, trying to quick sell their home will appreciate it. Hmmmm....

Doesn't that qualify as a Lawn Ornament?

Yes and no. It is only out for a short part of the year....the gopher is a year-round item.

C'mon...how many santas do you see out on someone's front lawn in August?

I'm so jealous of all your Xmas paraphernalia! All I have is my sad little tree... and no place to store decorations in our tiny apartment. :-(
