6th Day of Christmas- Santa Series
I used one of my students as my model for this Santa. I started my teaching in 1988, at the Minnetonka Senior Center, and I have so many wonderful memories of those retired ladies and gents. This particular one was always up to mischief, so it was my own bit of mischief by using him for my model. I thought if he were playing with a puppet, it could remind us that there's always someone higher than ourselves who is in charge. :)
