Santa's Magic Key & Goodies Galore

Our regularly scheduled Christmas festivities came to a screeching halt this week when Sam and Anna both made a very keen observation. We don't have a chimney. For the first time in their lives, we don't have a way for Santa to make his stealth entrance into our home on Christmas Eve. So what's a mom to do?? Take the advice of the many other military wives that have gone before...you get creative. Hence, Santa's Magic Key. Did you know that this special key can open ANY door for Santa on Christmas Eve?? Lucky I got my hands on one of these...

We've also been chin high in Christmas goodies for neighbors, friends, bus drivers and the other great everyday people of our lives. LOVE these reindeer take-out boxes from Target's $1 bin. They are the perfect size for a little bag of treats tied with twine.

Check in later this weekend...I've got a HUGE announcement and Christmas giveaway in the works that you won't want to miss.

I am also up to my eyeballs - and need to get treats passed out before I snack on them all!

all the years we lived here on Elmendorf, we didn't have a fireplace/chimney. my little brother never questioned it - he replied simply that santa was magic and came through the heating register! so year after year, my oldern brother donned big rubber boots, stepped in the flour, and made santa tracks from the heater to the christmas tree. and of course, the reindeer always ate the food we left outside for them and there were sleigh tracks in the snow, so we KNEW santa had been there! :)
can't wait to hear where you go on your "warm" trip.
