Happy New Year , everyone.
Yes, Karah, there is a Santa Claus, and the beard is real!
I love this picture of my youngest grandchild and her (grandpa) Santa. He does such a good job as the big man. He even has natural padding like the real thing, much to the doctor's dismay!
He saves his yearly vacation time and takes it in December for his Santa gigs. Over the years he has become very popular and gets more and more requests each year. This year he did his company's first ever Family Holiday Party. There were 250 children at the event. He was one tired Santa.
May we all have an improved 2009!
