We got to bring in Christmas with Santa Clause last night. He was round, jolly and oh so familiar. Haley got to be Santa's helper at Leslie's church Christmas party, while Tom? well, he was "around" joining in on the fun somewhere (wink wink).
After the party, we drove through some of the more affluent homes in the area and enjoyed seeing all the holiday decorations. We stopped at our favorite, one that always draws a crowd. I've never seen anything quite like it and each year they seem to add a little more to the festive look.
I'm not sure I'd want to set up and take down all this stuff, but what a wonderful display of holiday cheer. It helped get me more in the mood for Christmas. My favorite time of the year.
