Holiday Traditions

Every year when I was growing up my Grandma would make us Santa pillowcases. I would get so excited when I would go to my room and there on my pillow was a brand new Santa pillowcase!!   
 My Mom loved decorating for the holidays so I'm sure it was just as much fun for her to put them on our pillows and listen for our squeals of delight when we found them.
Last year I had found some fabric after Christmas, it didn't have Santa on it but it brought that warm fuzzy feeling back to me in a flash,  so I bought it and this year am making Dan and I some Christmas pillowcases.
So it got me thinking and I decided to start this tradition with my own daughter and granddaughter
I finished this one tonight.
And yes, I'm just as excited about putting it on Claire's pillow as my own Mother was.
but shhhhhh  don't tell.
