Mr. and Mrs. Claus

My very favorite Christmas keepsake is my little Santa & Mrs. Claus salt & pepper shakers. They kiss. :-P

clauses 04

These once belonged to my Grandma Mock. I don't know if it is my fondness for my grandmother or my fondness for salt & pepper shakers that makes me cherish these little momentos so much. I'm guessing it's the perfect combination of the two. ;-) My Grandma Mock was a Christmas fanatic and she always made the holidays so special for all of us.

So when I saw Maddox excitedly jerk these precious little statues from their box and exclaim "LOOK!"...I about freaked! "AAAAA! Okay. Don't move. Now...very carefully hand them to mommy...." And a big sigh of relief when they were in my hands and safely perched out of reach of little hands. :-)

I decided then and there to get a few photographs just in case tragedy strikes...photographs are less fragile, right? One more...how about a little dramatic mood lighting....
