Communications from the North Pole have been a little sluggish over the past couple days. I guess Santa’s internet is probably struggling under the weight of last minute requests as he is getting for presents. Plus I’m sure the elves are updating the naughty and nice database constantly, just in case Santa needs to change out the gift for a lump of coal.
Luna has been worried sick about Sergio and at one point had him kidnapped by pirates and forced to walk the plank. My attempts to tell her that as far as I knew, no pirates sailed past the North Pole because it was a land mass … and covered with snow. She then insisted it was the snow pirates that were after him and she feared she’d never see him again. Imagine her relief when we received an email with this picture telling us they had made some deliveries, had a nice chat with Santa, who had given them each a gift for being such good helpers, and were headed home. And Sergio added a PS to the end. Don’t worry, Luna. Santa said you did a good job waiting, so he gave me a present for you, too.
When the critters returned Santa praised their good job,
And he sat down beside them, ’cause Santa is no snob.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!
