I Believe In Santa and So Does SaraJane...Pink Saturday #11

I believe in Santa Claus!
I believe in Santa Claus!
I believe there's always hope when all seems lost.

I believe in Santa Claus!
I believe in Santa Claus, I'll tell you why I do.

Cause SaraJane is here with Girl Raised In Texas...Sue!

Okay Dolly and Kenny...Sing It!!!!

Welcome to CollectInTexas Gals Pink Saturday #11 Post!

Haven't the December Themed Pink Saturday's been so much Fun!Fun!Fun!

This Pink Saturday...December 19th is 'Favorite Christmas Tradition'.
(I have one and it's coming in a minute or two)

Last Pink Saturday...December 12th was 'Favorite Christmas Decoration'.
(Mine was my Mama's Candy Cane Santa and Santa and Mrs. Clauses)

Three Pink Saturdays ago...December 5th was 'Favorite Childhood Christmas Memory'.

And that's where SaraJane comes into the picture!
My Thank-you Letter to Santa must have traveled 'LicketySplit' through my Yahoo Email.
Santa must have had a 'HotLine' to eBay, PayPal and the US Post Office cause Sara Jane arrived last Saturday, December 12th.
'I Believe' it was meant to be!
You See....we were having a 'Family Christmas Party' when the door bell rang!
"Who could it be? We are all here", I said as Papa Santa went to answer the door.

It was our Santa Mailman with a 'Big UHaul' box!
It was addressed to Sue...that'd be this GRIT...and was from Seattle'NorthPole',Washington!
Everyone gathered around and...

My Favorite Tradition for Christmas...

Picture taking in front of the Christmas Tree!
Like this one taken Christmas 2001 with our Grandchildren...Baby Mason (6 months), Kami (7 yrs.) and Taiten (3 yrs.)

And, like this one taken last Saturday, December 12, 2009.
Look, Santa, there's a 'New BabyBubba', Jackson (3 months) who is celebrating his 'First Christmas'! Yep, they sure have grown and changed in 8 years, and OK, so have Nana and Papa!

OK, Ya'll...back to SaraJane...

I just wanted to show you a few pictures of SaraJane since she arrived last Saturday, and then I'm going to let her tell you her story.

But first she wants to say a 'Big Thanks' to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting this Amazing Event called "Pink Saturday" where 'Believing' makes Christmas Wishes come True!

So, grab your Christmas Mouse and ClicketyClick HERE to visit Beverly and the other Christmas PinkParticipants!

OH! Before you go SaraJane would like to tell 'The Rest of the Story' about arriving last Saturday!

Yep, SaraJane is a Blogger and invites you to visit her blog...SaraJane's Christmas Diary. Her First entry is about her arrival last Saturday. She will be posting about her MakeOver, her New Room, and in time when she's better, her many Christmas' apart from 'The First Little Girl' for whom she was a Christmas Gift, Sue.

PS...Thanks to all of you who 'Believed in Santa' and knew SaraJane and Sue would be together again.
And As Always...Thanks for Coming and Commenting!
