The bearded Santa is a sweet idea.

Tonight I discovered a site where you can upload a picture from your house and merge it with a picture of Santa so that you are able to have a picture of Santa in your house. The details for this are in the link below:

We love the Englebreit version of The night before Christmas. She is from our home city! Thanks for the activities to go along with it.
