This winter when the leaves are gone from the trees and the berries and nuts have all disappeared, the birds and animals begin foraging to find the food and shelter that they need to survive.  If you build a very nice Snow-Lady using all the love in your heart, providing her with a soft scarf, a fluffy hat and a carrot nose; be sure to give her a big friendly smile so she will love and protect those animals that come to her by giving them a safe comfortable place to rest.

At the North Pole Santa’s little helper mice are very busy and every mouse has a special task to complete.  It is Patty’s job to make sure that all the Poinsettia plants are ready to be delivered.  While she was busy at work, Santa asked her to pose for the annual Christmas greeting card.
