Here Comes Santa Claus…here comes Santa….

right down the Rainbow River!


A Florida tradition!

I see the boat now…I mean SLEIGH!


It’s coming down the river with Santa and Mrs. Claus!


Exciting for ALL ages!


We all walked up the hill with them both!


Step aside Mrs. Claus!


(And yes, it was COLD and that is ME with a red fleece hat on! lol)

But I’m happy and so are hundreds of other people!




Santa Claus is on his way to see you, too!

Are you ready?

Prudence is busy upstairs supervising gift wrapping. Hubby's tradition is to wrap on Christmas Eve. Me, I'm ready at Halloween (giggle).

All of Us

Don't you just love all of those lights? We have something very much like it on the river here but I have only seen it on TV. Wearing the red fleece hat makes you look very festive and it's almost a perfect match to the red of Santa's suit.

Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas. Hugs

Dear, darling Diane, I just had to stop by and wish you very Merry Christmas and a Bright New Year. I've missed you so and hope to be back in Blogland after the holidays.

Oh, Diane...I just love it! Several years ago when we lived in San Diego...We lived on a sailboat and would string Christmas lights on the mast for our Christmas tree. Your photos bring back some happy and funny memories.
I'm so glad you shared, my sweet friend.

You look so cute in your little red hat next to Santa. The Rainbow River is cold in the summer so I bet that water was extra chilly tonight. Merry Christmas & wishing you a most blessed 2013. xo
