Counting down the days until the Santa Claus arrives. I hope you all have been very very good. And you are eagerly awaiting his arrival.

Christmas is a time of year that we all should take a moment to give thanks to what we are grateful for. I look back on the past year and I am truly thankful for all of my family and friends. With each passing year the sad reality is that a few of my closest friends continue to experience a loss and this year unfortunately was no exception. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone that has lost someone close to them this year and my Christmas wish is that fond memories will ease the pain of that lost loved one.

I look forward to the Christmas season because it affords me the wonderful opportunity to spend holiday time with family and friends reminiscing about past holidays and childhood frivolities. I really think there is no greater gift than the time we share and the memories we create. When unwrapped those memories bring huge smiles and lots of laughter. I am looking forward to creating a few new memories to log into my holiday annual.

For the past few years, I have attempted to include a Christmas themed visual with my Christmas blog that usually includes one of Santa’s beautiful helpers and this year I see no reason not to continue the tradition! This year I get to showcase the Christmas spirit with a very festive Holiday capture of a dear friend and wonderful Santa’s helper, Ms. Susan Moody. With helpers like her it is easy to see why Santa stays so happy year round.


Since I am the only one that puts Christmas presents under my tree I have to write my own list and I felt the need to ask Stanta for one additional present to be delivered in 2015. I am glad to say that Stanta was most willing to entertain my request with the disclaimer that I would have to wait and see if my wish comes true and can be delivered!

Thank you Mr. Stanta for the consideration and Roll Tide Roll!!!!

Merry Christmas to you one and all!!!!


Ho Ho Ho!!!
