An update on the Santa Sleigh and the Santa workshop builds.
It’s been a busy weekend of woodworking at the Claxton house.
If you do not know, our house in Balch Springs, Texas serves as a waypoint for Santa during his around-the-world adventures of gift-giving each year.
This Christmas season our Christmas decor expanded.
You see, Santa sent me the mental designs of a Santa Sleigh, and a 48″ x 36″ x 8′ “Santa Workshop.”
Building each piece fills me with the Christmas spirit.
What kid do you know who wouldn’t want a life-sized Santa Sleigh in their front yard?!
The evidence proves this is a great idea.
Neighborhood children have come from near and far to play on my Santa Sleigh and will be back with their parents once Santa arrives.
How cool is that?
Cool enough to have nine kids and a kitten in the sleigh at one point today.
Before long I will finish my replica of Santa’s Sleigh and the Elf Workshop, and then we’ll paint them.
Then they’re going out in front where, in December, Santa will join us several nights so the neighborhood children can bring their parents and take photos.
No need to drive to the mall.
Here are a couple of pics from the day.
