Most snowmen aren't known for their lithe figures either are they? I know the problem. ;)

Haha... hope Santa was trying to come down my chimney. It's wide enough!

YIKES! If you call Santy Claus the "F" word, there might not be anything under the tree for you, come Christmas morning! I'm just saying. So, you better watch out! (LOL!)

Oh yes, it's almost here Melanie :)

He won't be able to get down our Valerie, lucky he's magic and can find another way in eh? ;)

I just hope he doesn't read my blog Sparkle Farkle ;0

Glad you like it Jim :)

He has to be doesn't he Bee?

I've noticed that about Santa and always wondered how he squeezed down chimneys. I figure that since he's magical, he can miniaturize himself for the chimney descent and then go back to his regular size.

He certainly is. Magic.

Good one. I wondered who he was tipping his hat at. How silly that I didn't think of Santa.
