Not entirely convinced by Santa.

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

Ho~Ho~Ho! He’s a jolly elf masquerading as the Big Guy!

2. Jill Weatherholt - December 15, 2014

Love those Reindeer! And those brownie bites…yum! ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

I took the brownie bite with the magic top hat.

I’ll bring Frosty back to life on Christmas Eve . . . if I can find some snow. ๐Ÿ˜›

Love it – no need for dinner!

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

You got that right. We had a slice of pizza at Edwards Jones. After a number of other nibbles, we were done for the night.

4. brickhousechick - December 15, 2014

Ha,ha! Love it, Nancy! Maybe Santa had more than 10 bites of cheesecake! ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

I think I saw a hip flask peeking out of his boot. :mrgreen:

5. katecrimmins - December 15, 2014

Love steel drums!

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

They had a tropical flavor to holiday celebrations. Pa rum pum pum pum.

6. Silver in the Barn - December 15, 2014

Hariod Brawn’s comment made me laugh! Fa la la, Nancy!

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

The funniest part of the evening was watching Santa try to give away candy canes to the kids.

They were on FULL ALERT at the candy-toting terrorist dressed in red.

7. Kate @ Did That Just Happen? - December 15, 2014

Awesome!! That looks like a fun time!

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

The holiday open houses on the island are fun to attend ~ the kids are excited and the music is merry.

8. livelytwist - December 15, 2014

a slighty disheveled Santa XD

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

He looks like he just missed the mark. ๐Ÿ˜›

9. Valleygrail - December 15, 2014

Poor old fellow! He’s been riding in an open-air sleigh; that must be why everything about him appears disheveled.

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

Yes! I’m sure that’s it! Ho~Ho~Ho!

10. anotherday2paradise - December 15, 2014

Hahaha. That Santa does look like an imposter. I wouldn’t sit on his knee, for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

Kids seemed absolutely terrified of the jolly old elf.

11. Tiny - December 15, 2014

Ho Ho Ho – that was a good swag ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

Not too shabby! And the violinists and steel drums were FAB.

12. Grannymar - December 15, 2014

Yer man in red looks like he has had a hard days night! I love the reindeer.

PS. I am up and running again the problem is solved.

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

Yay! Glad to hear it, GM. You’re the first blogger I’ve followed whose blog got hijacked.

13. diannegray - December 15, 2014

Love it, Nancy – but I’ll be singing that song all day now ๐Ÿ˜‰

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

It’s the catchy Christmas Candy Cane Crawl Carol. :mrgreen:

14. Pix Under the Oaks - December 15, 2014

Maybe Santa was a bit warm. Those brownie bites! A couple of them would be just right after the veggie stir fry we just finished. Steel drum carols.. now that is cool!

nrhatch - December 15, 2014

One of our Christmas CD’s is Steel Drum Carols. Very tropical! Your dinner sounds yummy. A brownie bite for dessert would be perfect.

15. jannatwrites - December 15, 2014

It’s better than a partridge in a pear tree ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I could’ve doubled the Hershey’s kisses!

nrhatch - December 16, 2014

Thanks, Janna! Hershey’s kisses . . . coming up!

16. Anne Lene - December 17, 2014

Wonderful ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 17, 2014

Thanks, Anne. Of the 3 Open Houses we attended on the island this year, the Candy Cane Crawl was the best ~ in large part because of the violinists and the steel drum.

17. Three Well Beings - December 18, 2014

I love the steel drums! It’s been a very, very long time since I’ve heard live steel drums–Perfect for putting a smile on faces!

nrhatch - December 18, 2014

I’m not sure, but I think I first enjoyed Steel Drums in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas ~ Spring Break, Senior Year in college. Definitely brings back great memories.
