I found Santa's car recently! ��



Countdown to Christmas!!

These were all taken recently at a restaurant in my hometown of La Crosse, WI. Santa was parked in their parking lot, and their countdown is out year round in the bar area- the owners are huge Christmas fans like us!! ��

My first contributions will be my first sights of Christmas being welcomed into a regional chain of grocery stores. Independent had some wonderful Christmas decorations across from their Halloween costumes on Sunday. I would be a lie if I said my eyes did not light up with excitement!

It's nothing too crazy, but the shelves are being stocked!

Outdoor decorations! Snowman and candy canes:


Lights are available!:

Tinseltown as of a couple weeks ago! A few new items have arrived but their major shipment has yet to be put on display. I think I will have to return next week!
