Keep Christmas in your heart all year

After all, it is easy to do when you are married to Santa Claus! Yep, that's DH, all dressed up on Christmas Eve. He plays Santa every year at a few places, and my mom asked if he would be willing to surprise her friend's 2 boys. I didn't get to see the event (I'm not THAT sneaky an elf yet!), but he said it was great fun. Oh, and the beard isn't his.....32 is a bit young for a full snowy-white beard! But having spent a lot of time on stage with community theater and such, he knows where to find good costume accessories and how to apply them properly.

So, in honor of my last finish for the year.

"Santa" by Knotted Tree NeedleArt, 2007 JCS Ornament issue
-stitched on 32-ct. Bay Rum jobelan
-stitched as charted ( or 2 minor floss substitutions were necessary!)

Eventually I'd like to finish this as an ornament...I'm thinking of giving everyone a stitched ornament next year, and this one could be perfect for DH. I just have to put it away for a while, until he forgets about it. LOL

Happy New Year! :o)

What a great photo of the two of you and the ornament couldn't be more appropriate. You look so happy together. It has been a pleasure getting to know you through your blog and stitching this past year. Wishing you a new year filled with love.
