Merry Christmas... our house is just starting to stir... the excitement of seeing what Santa stuffed in our stockings, opening presents, family and friends gathering for the day and our big dinner!
Here are several Santa postcards to celebrate the day! 
A glimpse at some of the postcards in my collection.
The three of these were sent to Miss Francis Cooper of Tacoma WA
This card was given by Ethel also of Tacoma (it is addressed with both hers and Francis's addresses on it.)  It was not mailed (no stamp or postmark), it is the earliest of the three as it does not have a divide back!
On the back: Dear little Francis, Santa Clause has comet o greet you with a most merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  May you have a joyous Christmas season. With Love from Ethel

Sent in 1909 by Auntie from Genesee, Idaho.

On the back:  I'm afraid we aren't going to have any sleighing for Christmas.  Guess Santa Claus will com in a "flying machine" this year.  With Christmas Love, Auntie

Sent 1910 from Tacoma, WA
On the back: Dear Francis, This is to wish you and all the household a Most Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.  With lots of Love from Ethel!

Oh! My goodness! These postcards are so beautiful and charming. A Merry Christmas to you, dear Lyneen. ((hugs))

This has been such a precious time with my kids, sis and dear little niece. Then guests arriving for dinner and ah, what fun--music, singing--we had a ball.

Everyone is upstairs now, working to put together a platform bed for my niece. :D What a great group of friends. :D Have a lovely evening and a beautiful holiday weekend, my Friend.
