    1. Right now, I'm remembering the effort of getting eleven kids to look in the same place at the same time. Soon, though, I'll remember the beauty! :)

  2. Heyyy ... I didn't even know Santa and Mrs Santa had kids, let alone grandkids!! (Although I did notice they were holding hands in that first photo :O))

    That final picture is simply beautiful. What a lot of work, but the result is a treasure.
