Let the games begin.....

Do any of you remember this guy?


This is the santa that Jason and I hide for each other through out the Christmas season....

Jason has always one upped me on hiding places...
 this time he was behind a plaque above the cabinets in my kitchen..only the little white tassel of his hat stuck out!
 This time he was sitting by the station where I get my hair cut.

.....that was until last year.

I sent the santa with a friend's son who was also at JBU and he snuck it into Jason's dorm room.  It was sitting on his desk when he came back from Thanksgiving break!!!  
He couldn't quite top that.....and it made me so happy!!!

He brought it home and tried to hide it well, but I found it and hid it here...

This is in the corner of his room and he never found it!!!!
and therefore had to concede....

That I WON!!!!!

So this year, I knew I had to get an early start to catch him off guard...


This is the santa sitting on the hearth at Jason's girlfriend's parent's house!!! 
I mailed them the santa last week and they had it just sitting out when he came over last weekend.  
His girlfriend kept texting me:

**dad turned it on, it's playing music. he hasn't noticed yet
**it's softly playing in the background 
**He started singing to it...maybe he'll catch on eventually

then finally, he saw it and commented that our family had a santa just like it......and suddenly the wheels started turning and I got the following text...

**Did you happen to hide the santa at the Perry's?

Gotcha!!

....and let the games begin!!!!

hahahahah,
we had a 'pig' that lived at one of our technical schools (when I worked at Bell)...that little pig traveled around the world, had his picture made with dignitaries and wore all kinds of 'ethnic' clothing along the way...and he ALWAYS sent post cards back home to let his Daddy know what he was enjoying. He would come home once or twice and year and the next class would get to 'kidnap' him and it would start all over again. SO much fun!
