Constructing Santa

Its my dad's birthday today so it seems appropriate to talk a little about him. He loves Christmas. He has Christmas socks, musical ones, they play Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer when you press on Rudolph's nose. The Christmas decorations stay up until the day after his birthday.

For three years he has dressed up as Santa much to the delight of my two nieces. This year was the first year that my sister and I were able to see the construction of Santa. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Now we understand why we used to hear our parents laughing their asses off in the basement. I think the three Jacks, straight up, definitely help the process.

Happy Birthday Dad!
