Santa is coming to town.

My Secret Santa stocking is beginning to look fruitful.
I received little stickers as a present already! (this is from one of my students, Teressa)
I received drawings from another student, Joseph.

 I received a book about aggressive vegetables... so now I know why I want to be vegetarians... those suckers deserve to die....

And this is what I have prepared for my friends (Noppy's isnt here cuz she had to leave yesterday so I gave her hers already). They are magnets.

Indeed... Santa Claus is coming to town.
