This Santa is very special ~ ~ it was given to me by my dear friend who passed away.

~ ~ Ruth and I called each other on Christmas day a few years ago and laughed so hard . .

~ ~ ~ ~ til we cried, as we gave each other the same Christmas gift!..

We have done that a couple of times in the past ~ I miss her laugh and her spirit.
