Scary Santa

Last year, for Christmas my husband and I bought his mom a gift certificate to Best Buy where she bought a portable, wallet-size digital frame. She then gave it back to me to put the kid's pictures on it. While I was cleaning out some boxes yesterday, guess what I found? Yes. The frame. Apparently I have yet to put pictures on it. Ahem. This is why, if I were the type of person to make resolutions, I would make the resolution to be more organized. But of course, I'm not organized enough to make resolutions.


Last night I dropped my two oldest off at my mom and dad's house for the night and as I pulled up to my house, my first thought was "why does my neighbor have a statue sitting in front of his house?" Then I got closer and realized that it was Santa. Full red suit, complete with fake beard and bulging red sack. Standing completely still, in the dark, on the sidewalk in front of the neighbors house. Five days after Christmas. He didn't even look up at me as I drove by him. I was thankful that I had a garage to pull into and shut the door behind me, otherwise I would have kept driving. It was like one of those "What's Wrong With This Picture" games. (Oh, oh! I know! It's the creepy santa! ) I wondered if I still had a tv or computer. When I got in the house, I peeked out the window and he was gone.

Then several minutes later, I could swear I heard the doorknob being jiggled. But maybe I was imagining it. Either way, I was on full alert last night and I kept checking and double checking the doors. So today, because of my paranoia, I'm exhausted and my head hurts and I'm grumpy. And it's all santa's fault.

I hate it when my husband is out of town and I get super paranoid and think someone is trying to break in. I set up booby traps all around the house and then I take them down b/c I think, "What if one of them goes off? I'd have a heart attack!" So, I just pray that no one breaks in and I stay up all night. It's crazy.

Scary creepy Santa - Yikes!
I would have grabbed my badass bb gun and scared him right out of the hood...

mrs_muffins said...

Omg! I would have been just as freaked out!

Amy said...

*Creepy*! I once had someone try to come into my house while I was home with my child. It did a pretty good job of freaking us out. I may have nightmares of prowling/intruding santas now. Great.

Janie B said...

You should have called the police...just in case. Scary!

Tiffany said...

first, calvin & hobbes is my fav. comic ever. mainly b/c i don't really like comics, but also b/c those two are hilarious.

i would have called the po-po on santa...weirdo

Sunday said...

What is the ONLY thing freakier than santa?

Clowns!

Nuff said!

Molly said...

That's a bit odd....although I love your Calvin & Hobbes, totally forgot about them!

Daffy said...

Bad Santa...bad bad bad Santa...

My 911 fingers woulda been jumpy

Maven said...

Yup! That would totally FREAK. Me. Out.

We got one of those digital frames for Christmas this year too. I fear, I'm about as organized as you are!

Nathanael Rey said...

Hmmmm. Sometimes, when I am home alone at night watching the kids I get really freaked out if its windy or stormy, and I get all paranoid and check the windows and doors and whatnot. Haha.

Denise @ Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys said...

Oh no! Creepy Santa came to take back his presents?

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

CREEPY!

That one girl said...

Santa had a 'bulging red SACK?' Nice!

*snicker, snicker

When did I become my Mom said...

Chick WTF?! I'd have been up all night and I don't think that's paranoid. But maybe it is. And I just am. Paranoid.

Anywhoooo. Hope Santa keeps his freaky ass away from you.

WTF! Did anybody else in the neighbourhood see him?! Call the po-po anyway and make a report. See if they can make some extra patrols in the area or something...

Hmm. don't like this one at all.

Buckeroomama said...

Being more organized is definitely on my list of new year's resolutions. ~as I sit here looking at the VERY thick stack of junk papers that need sorting through!

r u s s said...

That IS creepy!
Did you report it? I think it should have been reported. People taking advantage of the holiday season.

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Organized? What does that MEAN, exactly?

D@mned Santa. That's freaky.

otin said...

You should beware of any guy with a bulging red sack! hahaha!

Happy New Year!

Ali (OneChicMommy) said...

Ok, thats just down right scary!!!! I would not have been able to sleep and would have been pacing the halls all night.
I hope the bad Santa doesn't keep you from having a fabulous New Year!

A Mom With A View said...

yeeaaah..aI am 230..not my weight..your 230ist follower...cant remember who I found you through...either way Happy new Year...Ill be back..!!

Kristin said...

Ahhhhhhhhh, that is totally freaky!!!

brainella said...

Creepy Santa is the worst -- at least you were paranoid for no reason. I sometimes get that way when I'm home alone. I make sure the doors are locked about every 20 minutes.

WhisperingWriter said...

I get so paranoid at night. I swear an alien is running around my backyard on a weekly basis..

Flory said...

I hate it when I'm home alone - I hear all kinds of noises. I constantly check all the rooms, look under beds, and check all the closets.

Happy new year!

--Tumbleweed said...

Unfortunately my dog responds to every little noise when we're home alone -- making me jump at creaks and shadows. If she were smarter I'd swear she was getting back at me for the cracks about putting her on a diet.

Susan Fobes said...

Calvin and Hobes was my favorite comic strip, and I do miss it... That Santa thing is creepy-I think I would have gone to bed with every light in the house on!

Erin said...

Oooh, that would've freaked me out, too!

lol re: the digital photo frame. That's totally something I'd do. Only I don't know if I'd be able to load the photos onto one of those. I'm that ignorant!

Angie Muresan said...

I would have slept with all the lights on and with the phone under my pillow.

My name is PJ. said...

The only thing creepier would've been a clown......

jenie said...

people really can think of a thousand ways huh?!

missing your visits, friend! ;) BTW, belated Happy New Year!

The Wifey said...

Creepy santas. Exactly the reason we didn't take Sophia to see him this year. Haha.

If you haven't heard of it, I know you'll love it after reading this.

Amber Page Writes said...

Yikes. That sounds like the beginning of a bad horror movie. What did Santa have in his sack...

Sorry. I'm sure I'm not helping.

Sarah said...

Creepy! The digital frame incident sounds like something I would do...gah

mrs. b said...

creepy santa? EEK! oh and i'd like to get more organized this year, too. but i've been saying that for years. *sigh*

Holly said...

Yikes. That would freak me out...I wouldn't sleep all night either. We came home early from a camping trip to find out many cars on our street had been broken into and someone was hanging out in front of our house and then drove away like crazy...we didn't sleep on the camping trip, and we didn't sleep that night. The dog was at the kennel, so we stacked a bunch of boxes in front of the doors.

Debbie said...

Well of course it was Santa jiggling the doorknob. How else does he know when you've been sleeping?

Life Laugh Latte said...

Can I confess? Well last year my daughter had a big b-day party where we chose a sick child online and made gifts for her. Guess where those gifts are one year later. Still in my "to mail" pile. Do people go to hell for that? Happy New Year...bet you feel better about yourself now. Holly

VE said...

Oh, that's just Santa's brother. He visits all the ones on the naughty list...

Graceful said...

I totally love your blog -- you crack me up (the Twas the Day AFter Christmas poem is a hoot!). Anyway, I want to spend more time here, but I'm at work (egads!), so I have to run. But I'll be back...

Christie O. said...

Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Yikes. That Santa scares me. No wonder my children cry when they see him.

mudmama said...

Ewwwww, creeeepy Santa!!!
Happy New Year to ya! I am with ya on the orginization thing!

blueviolet said...

What the heck is with that Santa? That's creepy!

So once you found the frame did you put it back in the box again? LOL

Mrsblogalot said...

Could it have been your M.I.L. dressed up as a joke?

...that thought would have me up nights and moving for sure! (-:

That is so scary, I would have been freaking out! A few years ago, there was a very tragic break in that involved a man dressed in a Santa suit in our city. Since then, it really freaks me out.
