I was looking for some vintage photos from my Christmas Past when I stumbled upon this Santagram from Western Union, dated 1970. It’s one of my favorite things tucked away in the baby book my mother kept for me.
Santagrams were sent from Santa directly to our home each December, addressed to my brothers and me. We were always SO excited to receive these! What a simple little treasure. Those were magical times for sure.
Have you seen one of the newer ways to get a message from Santa? It’s called the Portable North Pole. Not sure if we’ll try it or not, but it looks pretty awesome! On Christmas Eve we always make a point to track Santa via Norad before we go to bed. :)
My kids are bouncing off the walls right now with the anticipation of Santa’s visit.We’ve had a few snow days off from school which has only added to the hysteria! (therefore I’m a little wall-bouncy myself) We’re doing our best to keep busy with sledding, baking and last minute gift-making. We’re also looking forward to my parents coming in tomorrow to spend the holiday with us, yippee!
This season just comes and goes so quickly, doesn’t it? Time to sloooow down and breathe. On that note, I’ve decided to take a little blogging break until the New Year. I hope you take some time to relax and enjoy yourselves as well.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! See you in 2010!
