Taken from The Night Before Christmas...
His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry.
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.
As I was going thru some photos, I came across these photos taken in the 70's. They are of my Dear Husband playing Santa for his younger siblings and nieces and nephews. Well O.k. maybe a few grown-ups also. As you can see he had those eyes that twinkled. In all honesty it was those twinkling blue eyes that attracted me to him. He may have lost most of his Christmas spirit, but those baby blues still twinkle.
He had taken many years off of playing Santa...but he did do a recent apperance.
And like father like son blue eyes and all...
