Ho-Ho-Ho

Christmas is just around the corner and most of us folk have decorated the inside of our home, set up the Christmas tree and put up the Christmas lights all around the house.
This leads me to some Christmas memories that I would like to share with y’all. The one that I hold dear to my heart is the one when my daughter was real little and I had put her to bed, my husband (now X-husband) went to the fireplace and took is work boots and place then in the ash and rub then in to make big footprints. The he went out side and climbed up on the roof and began to jump and shake the bell and in his deepest voice he hollered out ‘Ho-Ho-Ho Mary Christmas’. Well let me tell ya that child of mind tore out of that bed and ran to the fire place and when she saw that Santa came she ran back to her room and got her favorite right toy Buddy the teddy bear to show him that Santa came to her home and that is why I painted ‘My Favorite Toy’ for that memory of that one night when I too for a moment believed in Santa through the eyes of a child and the love that she shared with her bear.


O’ by the way my daughter who is now 23 or 24 (I forget) is going to have her own child next year and to this day, still has that will loved teddy bear name buddy…
Marry Christmas all and to all a good night…
