Santa Claus Came to Town!

& here's the proof. Sleigh must have been in for repairs cos they used the fire truck & he was walking a bit too!

Every year on the Sunday before Christmas the local country fire brigade comes by in the morning for the kids. The truck is decorated. Santa has things to give all the kids in the neighbourhood.

BJ isn't really happy about the whole scary Santa thing. But he was happy to accept a gift offered by the jolly old fellow!

& then make a run for it with the loot! Ever so proud.

Lucky we remembered on time, otherwise I would have been out there in my pj's. We hear the sirens long before & finally it clicked that it is the Sunday before Christmas! It seems to early! But of course, this time next week it is all over & even Boxing Day is done! Except for the Boxing Day holiday on Monday isn't it???

Last night we had a Christmas party with the kids from our mum's group. BJ got a present there too & he actually opened it. First one he ever opened. He got a huge drawing pad. Big pretty white pages to destroy with the accompanying crayons! Ahhhh... bliss. Heck I would love to attack those pretty white pages myself! Nothing like a nice clean, shiney, new pad of paper.

So the Christmas parties are in full swing. We have our second Christmas dinner tonight. Here again with some family that aren't here at Christmas. Nothing like stretching it out!

Have a great day.

You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry,
You'd better not pout, I'm telling you why,
Santa Claus is coming to town.

I think kiddos are smart for being a bit scared of Santa--he's so different and we spend the whole rest of the year teaching our kids not to talk to strangers! I love your colorful blog! Hope you had a good one!
