Christmas surprise revealed


My family has had a special Christmas tradition ever since I was a little girl.  Santa comes to visit during our Christmas party,   bringing his bag with a small present for each person.  My Opa started it, and then my Dad took over as Santa. 

After my Mom saw the cute candy cane ornament toy I had made for a giveaway several months ago, she decided that’s what Santa needed for his Sack of Goodies. 

I made 40 candy canes…

and “Mrs. Clause” bought some really cute German charms to embellish them with.

Each family received a candy cane for each person in their family, plus an ornament made from a cookie cutter with a picture of the children inside and embellished with more German charms.

What a great job my Mom… I mean Mrs Clause…  did on finishing up this special surprise for everyone!

    Wow- a whopping 40 stuffed canes! Those look delicious! I love the fabric you used too! They look vintage (I’m biased… I love vintage *winks*)
    And they can keep them for years to come! Fabulous!
