Sometimes Life Is Hard

Sometimes life deals blows that make us stagger; I'm grateful to be able to take it to the Lord in prayer.
Philippians 4:6

I'm off to a slow start . . .

With my Christmas Decorating.  I ran by GW yesterday ~ looking for something else, but . . . since I'm already there I need to, have to "look" a little bit.  I rounded the corner of the Seasonal Decorating aisle and sitting there waiting for me was this!
Isn't he wonderful? He's ceramic, there is not one chip on him!  I pounced! I think I did the evil villian laugh (boowah~hahahah) I wrapped my arms around him and ran for the cash register before anyone else could see him!  He is an amazing addition to my Santa collection, the colors are PERFECT for my home!  His presence inspired me to pull out all the Christmas storage boxes and bins which are now sitting
My dogs are so confused!
Right now he is residing on the sofa table in the Living Room, who knows if he'll stay there.  I may just carry him around with me all day!

Because I love my "new to me" Santa so much I dug through the bins and boxes until I found another of my favorite men.  My "Tah ~Dah" Santa (to me he looks like he's thrown his arms in the air and yelled "Tah~Dah!).  I just love him, he makes me smile.  I keep him in the kitchen next to the sink so when I'm working in there I see his smiling face (my kids have threatened to have me committed, periodically I throw my arms in the air and yell Tah~Dah! Yep, way to much homeschooling).
Tah~Dah it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by, I enjoyed our visit.

Until next time!

P.S. Thank you so much for the lovely comments!  I was so surprised I almost fell off my chair.  Then I cried, you all made my night!
