When we were sorting through my parents’ pictures, we found a picture of my Mom dressed in a Santa suit and my Dad was hugging her.
Of course seeing this picture brought back lots of memories for my brother, sister and myself. We reminisced about the many times Mom wore this Santa suit. Mom had been asked to attend many Christmas gatherings through the years by family, friends and work to be Santa and pass out gifts. It wasn’t until later that we (my brother, sister and myself) found out that Mom was the “Santa” for three years at our Elementary school.
This year will be our first Christmas without either one of our parents and I wanted to do something special with the picture instead of keeping it in an album. I decided to frame it so that it can be displayed and be part of our Christmas.
I used Christmas scrapbooking paper, my Cricut and the SCAL. The buttons and trim that I used were from my Mom’s sewing box.
My Mom loved being Santa’s helper. Everybody young and old loved Santa (Mom) and my Dad was her biggest Santa fan. This is certainly one of many memories that will be forever cherished in all of our hearts.
