  1. I love it, Sharon! Santa’s got a hot tub sleigh! 🙂 I would like to see that flying across the sky! And how clever of Chilly and Willy and Jingles and Paws to figure out a way to get him out in the end! Thanks so much for joining in the holiday contest fun! 🙂

  2. Thanks so much Susanna! I am so excited that you like it! And yes, that would be a fun sight to see, wouldn’t it. Thank you for hosting such a fun holiday contest! I have truly enjoyed it!

  3. So clever of you to write this story like this. who would have thought. that is one of the things I like so much about these contests, that imagination trumps each time.

    Merry Christmas! 🙂
