Favorite Holiday Times!

I remember Santa coming around the neighborhood on his sleigh just before Christmas when I was little. It was completely one of my very favorite parts of the holiday season. As I got older, Santa stopped coming around. I'm not sure if it was budget cuts with the fire department or what, but I sure did miss it. I'll never forget one of the first Christmases we were married when I suddenly heard that magical sound of Santa and his reindeer coming down our street. I jumped up and opened the curtains to see if what I thought was there was real. Sure enough, there he was! I must have looked so silly- a grown woman jumping up and down, waving like a crazy person :) 

The county we live in now is a very rural fire district, but we are so very fortunate to have Santa visit us every year! He actually travels with the entire fire unit. They blow the sirens to let the neighborhood know he's on his way! We heard him coming and waited nearly two hours for him to finally make it to our house. We all got our candy canes, and Santa made us promise to be in bed early Christmas Eve. Before we said our goodbyes, we had someone in the big guy's entourage take a quick pick of us...

Can't wait to start in on the baking later this week as well. So much to do and so little time. I just need to remind myself what is important about this time of year...

See you tomorrow for a little Blogaversary treat for my followers!
