You may remember our Christmas in San Diego article, in which we explore holiday festivities that can be had simply by wearing a Santa hat.  Well, this Christmas, we are lucky enough to have two Santa hats!  Let’s enjoy the spirit of the season as we have a wacky fantasy adventure with Santa Sisters!  ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ„

We are at beautiful Balboa Park, a 1,200-acre (4.9 km2) historic urban cultural park in San Diego, California.  And we have not seen each other in so very long. 

Oh, there you are!

Run! Run to greet your Sister!

Run! Run to greet your Sister!

We run excitedly towards each other, careful not to trip on our skirts.

This is so exciting!

This is so exciting!

We are filled with glee as we run.  Oh, wouldn’t it be fun to have some of our glee?

Santa Sisters are happy.

Santa Sisters are happy.

Finally, we are together.  Let’s explore the park and see what fun things we can do together!

Scratch and Sniff

We Santa Sisters missed each other sooooo much.  We are very happy to be together.

So cute!  I'm happy to be with my Sister.

So cute! I’m happy to be with my Sister.

Like many sisters, we have special games we play when we are together.

It's my special itch.

It’s my special itch.

We call this game “Scratch and Sniff.”  We are sure all of you sisters play the same game!

She smells like happy.

She smells like happy.

I feel tingly down there when I do this.

Santa Sisters share.

Santa Sisters share.

It’s fun to share!  Do you ever share such fun?

Ha ha!

Ha ha!

It’s called Scratch and Sniff, not Scratch and Swallow!  Oh, what crazy Santa Sisters we are!

Smiles for everyone!

Smiles for everyone!

The best way to spend the day is with your Santa Sister, don’t you agree?

slavedear

We have a slavedeer with us who services our every need. We love our slavedeer.

Say "Hello" to our slavedeer.

Say “Hello” to our slavedeer.

We named our slavedeer “slavedear”.  It’s suits him, don’t you agree? (slavedear played by Fabio Zoolander*.)

*Not his real name.

slavedear spends a lot of time on his knees.

We take care of slavedear, ensuring that he is well-fed and well-groomed.

slavedear is fun to play with.  He is happy being our slavedeer.

Wheeee! I'm riding slavedear!

Wheeee! I’m riding slavedear!

All slavedeers love to be straddled, and ours is no different.  I wish I could ride slavedear all day long!

Poor slavedear!

Poor slavedear!

“Oh, no!” I tell my Sister.  “I’m afraid I’ve spread my Christmas cheer is all over slavedear’s back!”

slavedear enjoys Christmas cheer!

slavedear enjoys Christmas cheer!

“Ho ho ho!” my Sister laughs.  “It’s like you are kissing him from the other side.”  ๐Ÿ˜Ž  Oh, the fun we have with slavedear!

Lion Fountain

The Lion Fountain is famous for being a Lion Fountain.  Grrrrrrrr, baby!

Why is a lion spitting water?

Why is a lion spitting water?

We find a funny fountain at Balboa Park.  Why would a lion have water coming from its mouth?  But, oh, no!  The sound of the water makes us have to pee.  Call slavedear, quick!

I love my Sister.

I love my Sister.

Oh, well.  slavedear is running an errand for us, so we’ll have to hold it.  Time for cuddling with my favorite Sister!

Lily Pond

We once read that “The view of the Botanical Building with the Lily Pond and Lagoon in the foreground is one of the most photographed scenes in Balboa Park and a โ€œmust-seeโ€ destination in San Diego.”  So, let’s take photographs of Santa Sisters by the Lily Pond!

The famous Lily Pond.

The Lily Pond is wonderful!  Let’s go on the bridge to get a closer look!

We love looking at all the fish and lilies in the Lily Pond.  Can you see any lilies?

There are lilies everywhere today!

Sometimes lilies are hard to find.  But not today!

Look at those lilies!

Look at those lilies!

We are very excited to see so many lilies.  We wish everyone could see such wonderful lilies!

Lilies are such great fun.

Lilies are such great fun.

It’s a beautiful day to be outside with your Sister and lilies, the perfect combination!

Smile for the camera!

Smile for the camera!

Could Santa Sisters have more fun with lilies?  Hey….wait a minute!

What a fun time we are having!

What a fun time we are having!

While we are enjoying a view of the lilies of the Lily Pond, everyone else is enjoying a view of us in front of the lilies of the Lily Pond!  I guess we are now Lily Models!

Santa’s Sleigh

Santa’s sleigh is full of presents.  Let’s go visit it!

See all the fun presents?

See all the fun presents?

Have you ever seen such wonderful presents?  It would be so much fun to unwrap them and play with them!

Let's try and get closer!

Let’s try and get closer!

We try to get closer to the presents, but it’s hard; this wall is too high.  Wait, we have an idea!

Yea!  That's better!

Yea! That’s better!

From here, the presents are very easy to see!  When you see such wonderful presents close-up, it makes you wish for special Santa Sister Christmas treats!

Spanish Village

Spanish Village is a collection of quaint buildings and colorful courtyards that were originally built in 1935.

Spanish Village is the perfect place to cuddle, under the green trees with the smell of genuine Spanish Kettle Corn.

Sometimes Santa Sisters are sad.

We are happy, but we are also sad.  We miss slavedear.

slavedear is back!

slavedear is back!

Oh, slavedear!  We missed you so much.  We are happy that you are with us now.  And slavedear’s back has a lingering scent of Christmas cheer!  Good slavedear!

slavedear loves to be petted.

slavedear loves to be petted.

We rub slavedear on all the places that he loves.  What, slavedear?  There are other places you love to be rubbed?  Why, whatever do you mean?

We were just teasing slavedear.

We were just teasing slavedear.

Wait.  Is this what you want, slavedear?

slavedear does not enjoy being teased.

slavedear does not enjoy being teased.

slavedear is unhappy with us for pretending not to know where he likes to be petted.  Well, that will not do.  slavedear is not permitted to be cross with us.

slavedear needs a reminder.

slavedear needs a reminder.

It seems that slavedear forgot that he is a slavedeer.  Well, Santa Sisters should be able to handle that situation, don’t you agree?  A little Sisterly “encouragement” will do the trick!

Bea Evenson Fountain

Bea Evenson Fountain is named after the famous Bea Evenson and is a fountain.

What a marvelous fountain!

What a marvelous fountain!

After a short but vigorous petting, slavedear feels a sense of release, and is once again happy to be with us.  He poses for us by the water fountain.

slavedeers are natural pointers.

slavedear continues to show his appreciation for our capable and thorough petting skills by posing as we’ve taught him.

Hugs for everyone!

Hugs for everyone!

Santa Sisters and slavedear enjoy a three-way hug.  slavedear tells us that he loves three-ways, and now we know why!

A special kiss from slavedear.

slavedear says that he is experiencing resolution. We are so very happy that he is able to make such decisions.  We are the luckiest Santa Sister’s in the world!!

Lord of the Dance

We see an advertisement for Lord of the Dance, the Irish musical and dance production that was created, choreographed, and produced by Irish-American dancer Michael Flatley, and decide to take a short rest.

Santa Sisters dance with each other.

Santa Sisters dance with each other.

Apparently, the star of Lord of the Dance is a Spanish fellow named Jesรบs.  We wonder if he would like to have Santa Sisters dance in his show.  “Lord of the Dance starring the Santa Sisters and Jesรบs.”  We gave ourselves top billing.  ๐Ÿ˜„

slavedear likes to dance, too.

slavedear likes to dance, too.

slavedear’s favorite dancer is Snoopy.  We said that slavedear likes to dance; we didn’t say he was very good at it.  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

When you have a slavedeer, you must be patient.  slavedeers sometime behave very un-slavedeer-like, especially when they have strong urges to be petted.

You're welcome.

You’re welcome.

Oh, what a wonderful slavedeer!  He wasn’t misbehaving at all, but instead was thanking us for petting him.  All Santa Sisters should have a slavedeer.

slavedear loves servicing Santa Sisters.

slavedear is very happy right now.

Even more hugs.

Even more hugs.

slavedeer tip: When slavedear hugs us like this, he likes to take long, slow breaths through his nose.  He says it relaxes him.  Be sure to encourage your slavedeer to do the same.

Garden of Earthly Delights

There are many special places in Balboa Park for Santa Sisters to enjoy each other.

A garden of earthly delights.

A garden of earthly delights.

If we made a bible, our god would create a garden just for Santa Sisters to be with each other and enjoy the delightful adventures that Santa Sisters have.

My Sister has fun parts!

My Sister has fun parts!

In that garden of earthly delights, Santa Sisters would always have fun.  Do you think it would be fun to be in a garden full of delightful Santa Sisters?

slavedeer, NO!

slavedeer, NO!

We think slavedear is experiencing a form of parmaqqay.  slavedeers typically do not enjoy neutering, particularly because anesthesia is not used during the procedure, but that may be our only solution.  slavedear, behave yourself!

Now, where were we?

Now, where were we?

As we were saying, a garden full of Santa Sisters would certainly be a garden of earthly delights, do you agree?  If you had Santa Sisters like us, what would you do that was delightful?

Fun with slavedear

We realize that we are not being fair with slavedear.  As we said, slavedear loves to serve us, to make us happy.  Santa Sisters should be more understanding of their slavedeer’s needs.

Come!

Come!

We call slavedear to us and direct him to kneel.  It’s one of his favorite positions!

slavedear is very happy!

slavedear is very happy!

We are happy when slavedear is happy.  Oh, what a wonderful slavedeer!

slavedear loves servicing Santa Sisters.

Could Santa Sisters have a better slavedeer?

If you and your Santa Sister had a slavedeer, would he service you?  Do you think that would be fun?  

Odyssey III

Odyssey III has nothing to do with Greece, but is a “riotous orangey-red-painted assembly of aluminum discs.”  Oh, the special things we find at Balboa Park!

Santa Sisters like boobs.

Santa Sisters like boobs.

Part of the fun of being Santa Sisters is the abundance of boobs.  Everywhere you look or grab, you are rewarded with boobs!

Please. Don't. Stop.

Please. Don’t. Stop.

Sometimes, when I play with my Sister, I punish her boobs.  But it’s not really punishment, because she likes it.  Oh, I love my Sister!

Butt wait, there's more!

Butt wait, there’s more!

My Sister has many fun places to be punished.  If only she didn’t like pain so much…. ๐Ÿ˜•

slavedear likes to be disciplined, too.

slavedear likes to be disciplined, too.

When slavedear hears the slap of the crop on my Sister’s behind, he runs to join us.  slavedear is such a fun toy!

Sometimes pain can feel good.  If you know Santa Sisters like us, perhaps you could ask them to give you pain.  Do you think you would enjoy that?

More slavedear

We leave the red discs and find a nice bench to sit on.

Fun can be tiring.

Fun can be tiring.

We didn’t realize how much fun we were having and how tired we are feeling.  It’s time to take a short rest on a park bench.

slavedear suddenly runs towards us!  What crazy thing is he doing now?

Awwwww. Our slavedeer is a sweetheart.

Awwwww. Our slavedeer is a sweetheart.

Sometimes our slavedeer is overwhelmed with happiness and love and gives us a super-big hug.  slavedear is the sweetest slavedeer in the world!

Album Cover

We find a long, winding stairway, and decide to take a photograph to be used on the cover of a record album, when we decide to record one. ๐Ÿค—

A classic record album cover.

A classic record album cover.

Don’t we look good?  When we have a record album, we will call it, “Santa Sisters.”  Can you guess why?

A classic record back cover.

And this will be the back cover.  Pretty classic, don’t you think?

Santa Sisters Relaxing

We decide to take a photograph of ourselves for our annual Christmas card.  And what better photograph than Santa Sisters relaxing.

Holiday smiles.

Holiday smiles.

This is the photograph we will send to our family and friends.  The smiles of Santa Sisters will bring joy to their hearts.

Holiday musings.

Although you can still see our smiles, this photograph shows our serious side, as if we are contemplating the wonderful gift of Santa Sisters.  We will send it to the friendly folks we work with and to all our religious friends.

I love my Sister inside and out!

I love my Sister inside and out!

And this is the photograph that we will hang above the fireplace for our yearly neighborhood party.  Who wouldn’t love spending their time looking at the smiles of such happy Santa Sisters?

Until next year, Santa Sisters and slavedear wish you all happy holidays!


A special holiday Thank You.

We could not share all our wacky adventures without a photographer willing to take and process thousands of photographs.  If only there was some special way Santa Sisters could thank him… ๐Ÿ˜˜

awa Travels Tip:  Bil Keane, the author of The Family Circus, once said, “God put Santa Claus on earth to remind us that Christmas is โ€˜sposed to be a happy time.”  I wonder what Bil would say about the reason God put Santa Sisters on earth…
