Santa in 3 Days!!!

Is that Santa in a speeding Saab?

Of course not. Santa does not arrive for three more days. Don’t you be as clueless as these three dogs and get down to Rockport Harbor by 3:45PM to get your hot chocolate and a high five from Santa himself.

For up to date news and down to the second timing of the arrival of the large red one just click the Santa Timer

And this is the youth/family entry prize for the Cookie Contest tomorrow!……..

More pictures when I assemble the rest of the prizes!  Will also post the names and bios of the judges later today.  I hope you will come down, bring your best cookies (with the recipe) $5.00 and two non-perishable food items for The Open Door and enter your cookies to prove they are the best around!

This basket is chock full of baking supplies, three cookbooks, cookie cutters, and much much more.

In addition, there will be bowling and family dinner gift certificates added!

Hope to see you tomorrow night!
