never too old



I like to visit Santa Claus
When Christmastime is near.
It's fun to climb up on his lap
And whisper in his ear.

He says, "My dear, have you been good?
Have you done what Mother said you should?
Do you brush your teeth and hair each day?
Are you kind to others when you play?

I listen to each question
And answer every one.
Although I am ashamed to say
I must say no to some.

But Santa never scares me;
He doesn't even scold.
He just says, "Try again, my dear,
You're a fine lad, I am told."

Gee, I like to visit Santa Claus
When Christmastime is near.
It's fun to climb up on his lap
And whisper in his ear...




Pictured are our daughters, Melissa and Carrie - one last week and the other over 20 years ago. I guess you are never too old to sit on Santa's lap!

Your daughters have grown up but Santa looks to be about the same :-)

June said the same thing I was going to day....
So "ditto."

Your daughters must be as fun-loving as you...good on them for having a photo with Santa!! They look like mere teens anyway!

I think this is the same Santa (or Santa's helper). Is that possible, Susan?

I saw Santa too (blog photo posted)! I didn't sit on his lap though because we were alone!
