I'm sooo excited that tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I bet you all are too! Did you know that Santa Claus visits the library? Yup! He does! It's because I'm such a nice bear. As you can tell from the picture--he's been coming for a long time. It's a picture of me waiting for Santa way back before the Children's Library was expanded! The hard part is the waiting, and it will be extra hard tomorrow because the library will be closed--so I won't have all of you to keep me busy until he gets here!
When Santa comes to the library, he lands on the roof of the library and slides down into our fireplace, just like he does at your house! I made sure Miss Kristen bought extra cookies so that we'd have some for Santa. Because I'm a bear, I don't have to be asleep when Santa comes, so we chat a little bit, and I make him some Coffee to help him warm up and wake up! If you were flying all day delivering presents--you'd need coffee too! And sometimes I let him check out a book or two. Since he's Santa he doesn't have to pay overdue fines if he doesn't return them until next Christmas.
I can't wait to see what Santa brings this year. I wrote a letter asking for a friend, because I get lonely at the library by myself. Plus, there aren't enough bears here in Canton. What did you ask Santa to bring you? I'd love to know--reply to my blog! Merry Christmas!

Alpert has filled this book with gorgeous garments that are elegant in their simplicity. She uses a wide variety of types of yarn for a beautiful range of textures and effects. All of the patterns are inspired by natural elements, from a flickering flame to ripened wheat to a hazy moon. The book is also put together expertly, with close-up photos that truly show off the beauty of each piece.
During the Christmas season, lots of people get so busy and stressed with everything that has to be done. Just a few minutes with a funny Christmas book, can really be a great break.
