Ornament Anecdote: Day 7

Well, you know there is going to be a few hand made ornaments on our tree!
This wreath is something I designed for a kids' craft at a church party many years ago.
A cardboard disk cut to the size of a bagel with puzzle pieces encrusting the surface.
The puzzle was of Christmas cookies, so the colors and images were perfect!
The computer generated photo is of Rebecca at 10 months old or so (the blop on her cheek is a water mark-- water soluble ink you know!)
And here is Rebecca, age 6, last Friday night visiting with Santa at the Corder Community Christmas Party. Soup, chili, Christmas cookies, an old fashioned sing-a-long, door prizes, lighting contest winners awarded and recognized and, last but certainly not least (!), Santa came by with his Misses (she in mob cap, long dress and shawl). She assisted handing out bags of candy to the kids. He patiently spent a few minutes with each child asking their name and what they wanted for Christmas. He is the REAL deal. Like he stepped off the set of "Miracle on 34th Street".
I believe!
How about you?

This is too funny. I made a bunch of these one year and helped a bunch of kids make more. Looks like Santa really IS the real deal. I believe!

That Santa is certainly REAL!!!
We always had Santa come to my son's b'day parties - he was born on Dec 25th. Best Christmas present I ever received......

I also believe! There are great spirits of Santa alive in all of us this time of year. Christmas cookie puzzle! What an inspiration for a border. Lovely girl!
