Hello everyone! I am thrilled that you have stopped by to listen to me read you a story! I am sorry I could not visit you in person, but at least Santa arranged a way for me to bring you some additional Christmas cheer. Click on the video link below to see my visit to The Shelton House in Waynesville. If you want to know more about how Santa asked me to come to Waynesville be sure to read about that in The Mountaineer Newspaper article Beauty Visits the Shelton House.

Did you enjoy the story “Twas the Night Before Christmas?” It is one of my favorites! Did you know that you can also get a copy online to read for yourself or, even better, visit a local bookstore?

It gets so chilly outside this time of year that I have to find indoor things to do. My favorite activity is to curl up in a large overstuffed chair and read near my fireplace during the winter months.

I arrived in Waynesville just as the sun was beginning to set the other day. The mountains here are gorgeous, and you have so many trees! I loved them so much. I decided to dance out in the meadow so I could see them even better.

When I was finished with that, I decided to unpack my sleigh to wrap up a gift and pull out some of my favorite books. I’m used to reading by candlelight, and I never leave home without a few candles stowed away in case I need them.

I was so impressed with how well the Shelton House was decorated; it was lovely on the outside. If you haven’t seen it yet, the lights twinkle and smile at you as if they were old friends. The tinsel trail has several trees decorated from local shops with all kinds of ornaments!

While I was exploring the property, I found out Santa set up a mailbox on the porch where you can write him a letter! As you may have seen, I sent a short note to him to let him know I arrived.

Visiting your charming town has been the highlight of my year, and I hope to come back someday when it is warmer. I want to venture out even more into the forest to see waterfalls, wildlife, and flowers.

Sabrina, the photographer, was telling me all about those things because she likes to get out in the woods too. She showed me some of her pictures of her adventures and discoveries.

I hope you have enjoyed the time we have spent together, little ones. I know I have, and I will be thinking of you often. I know it has been a challenging year, and you may have been a little scared at times, but things will get better. You always have your family to lean on if you need them.
