SATURDAY MORNING NOT AT THE BIRD FEEDER

 Santa's back-up team is practicing.


It will soon be Christmas, and
Santa and the Reindeer are going out on 
practice runs making sure things run 
smoothly for his ride on Christmas Eve night.
The Pelicans are practicing too, as they 
will be standing by in case Santa 
needs his very important backup team,
It's never happened that Santa 
has not had his reindeer 
to deliver to all little girls and boys.
But, just in case....
the Pelicans do lots of practice runs,
with the support of the home team.

And so it goes in the head of this whimsical blogger.  

15 days to go 'til Christmas.  

Thanks for visiting!  
May your weekend be a great one.

  2. Thanks for the smiles. The pelicans could hold a LOT of presents in their bills as an additional help.

  11. That's such a cute photo with the pelican's talking with each other, Denise. I love the Santa hats too! Those Elf shoes at the end of your post are delightful as ever.

    **thank you for sharing your story about your childhood and the balloons and streamers and the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. The ones my mom had every year weren't that decked out either. She had a real tree, and always put red balls on the tree, and then later through the years, a few ornaments here and there and some tinsel. But we do remember those precious memories, don't we? : )

Always a fun and enjoyable read to learn of others' memories when they are happy to share. I certainly enjoyed the ones you have written about in your comment. Thanks again! Lovely!
