visiting with santa

We went to see Santa last week. Alfredo treated him like a good old friend. He whispered what he wanted in his ear (I think he got that idea from a song) and hopped down and said "Thank you, Santa!" so loud and happily. (The pint-size santa suit is from Babys R Us! And it looks so sweet on him...and hanging on a little hanger by the door at home!)

Yesterday was so dark and yucky all day that it was impossible to take photos. So here are yesterday's...

Yesterday's matchbox was by the very talented Valerie Jones...


And inside, the sweetest little duo of deer and a little tree.


And look at what a coincidence...here is yesterday's door:


And today's matchbox was made by sweet Marlene Haveron...

Inside? A pair of angel wings ala "It's a Wonderful Life!"

And today's door is a couple of presents. Alfredo wanted to open them!
