Elkie was Very Happy after Finding What Santa Left Her!!!!

Well, we had a wonderful Christmas and Elkie was really excited to find a water slide from Santa on the lawn in the morning!!!! I think he shopped smart at the sales a few months ago!!!!
Lots of fun, good food and chatter was had by all! Everyone admired my Christmas swap Bunny Paulius from Ina and adored Elkies surprise bunny Saulele!!!
There is nothing so exciting as watching a child run out to see what Santa had left on the lawn other than being that child!!! I hope you all had a fabulous childlike chrissy!!

And now on to another new year full of surprises..........:)  Hope it is a good one for everyone....
