Christmas & the holidays have always held
a Special meaning for me since I was little.
Maybe it's because my parents played Mr. &
Mrs. Santa Claus at our elementary school, or
each of us kids had an individual tree in our
rooms (as well as the Big Tree) It was always
(& still is) a magical, wonderous time, with

Maybe some of these "Vintage Photographs"
below will bring back some fond memories of
an easier, less hectic time for you.....
Does it you???? I love both the "Old" version and
the "Revised" one as well..........
Are you REMEMBERING when ?????.........
I'm here with my sister.....I think I was a
little "unsure" of Santa at the time....
Bernadino Mountains.... a number of times...we
got to see the reindeers, Mrs. Claus' kitchen
with the jams (maybe that's where I started thinking
about making alot of different kinds of jam??) elves,
Giant Lollipops, Gingerbread houses, etc.
I'm pretty sure Santa's Village isn't even there
anymore...Too bad for our kids.....
only this one is driven by an elf.....with kids in it...
This was the Gingerbread House up at Santa's
Reindeer Barn, Wee Puppet Theatre, & the
Mill Wheel Toy Shoppe was.....
Hope you enjoyed the memories....now let's
TRY & Win THIS GIVEAWAY........Good Luck!!
