Countdown 'til Christmas ~ Day 13/Best Dressed Santa

This little Santa is quite sexy, dressed in his leopard print suit.
~I {heart} animal prints!~

Santa was found at the local Flea Market last year, for $5.00.
He was new, sold by a vendor who offered overstocks from a large online/mail order company.

When David was just a little fellow,
...just last year....
nah, just kidding, a little further back than that,
he would cry and whine hysterically when he heard the song, "I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, underneath the mistletoe last night..."
I had to assure him over and over, each time the song was played, that "NO, Mommy only kisses DADDY, not Santa! "

Not sure what that says about me, Santa, or his dad.
...don't think I want to explore that one! LOL!

I sure am blessed to have a Santa/Daddy, (Kevin), to keep me warm,
and meet me under the mistletoe this Christmas Season! "wink, "wink!"

~Have yourself a Merry 'lil Christmas, now! Rhonda :)

I don't blame David - that song has always bothered me too! I always turn it when it's on so my kids don't hear it - I can't figure out how to explain that one:)
Everything looks beautiful!

I've always wondered about the writer of that song...whatever made them think of that?

Your place looks so lovely, Rhonda.

The perfect Santa for you! I laughed at David's torment over that song only bz it's so amazing what goes on in their little minds. It's such a sweet memory and I'm glad you shared it.
