Greetings! The reason I have not posted a blog in so long is because we have been to Dallas, and that means we have been ordering merchandise for the 2009 Christmas season. Every year as we prepare to attend market we wonder what the designers could possibly come up with that is new and fresh. And, every year we are delighted to find beautiful, new things that get us excited about the next Christmas! This year was no exception, so begin to make your plans to come see us for the 2009 season. If the Lord is willing, we'll be opening on September 26, 2009.
We really packed a lot of activity into our time off. Saturday, March 7th, found us doing two tours; one at 9:00 a.m. and the other at 1:00 p.m. On Friday, we had packed and prepared to be gone from here for a week and a half. So, after the p.m. tour on Saturday, we packed the car and then drove to Corpus Christi to attend the 75th birthday party of two very good friends who are twin sisters. After the party, we drove to San Antonio where we spent the night (well, what was left of it!), and then on Sunday we drove to Plano (just north of Dallas) where we stayed for the night. The next day, we drove a few miles farther to McKinney where we visited friends who used to live in Premont.
That afternoon we made our way back to Dallas where we spent the next week. Now we are home and ready to begin doing tours of The Christmas House once again. That goes on until the end of April, so it's not too late to call and make a reservation.
God has been so good to us, and we praise Him for all the blessings He has bestowed on us.

My second blog!! Wow, I'm learning to do this, and it's fun. On September 20, 2008, we opened The Christmas House for our 23rd Christmas season. It has been a great season and is not over with yet. We will be open for tours until the end of April, so if you haven't been on a tour this season, it's not too late. Give us a call at 1-800-276-4339 or 361-325-2068 to make a reservation. At Santa's Texas Workshop, our 1/2 price sale is still in effect, too. Ninety-nine percent of our merchandise is 1/2 off the marked price. If you would like to shop, please call one of the numbers above to make an appointment.
