We’ll wrap up our We Love Dippin’ Dots Sweepstakes on Monday. Be sure to enter daily; three winners will be chosen at random.
Santa Jim’s birthday is on Sunday. As promised, here’s a photo of that grand man’s first experience as Santa.

A soft – and highly absorbent – nod to the #PodSquad’s two-year anniversary.
The touch, the feel, of cotton, the fabric of a #HappyAnniversary to the #HoWoPo #PodSquad! We went with the traditional 2nd anniversary gift of cotton. The modern version, if you prefer, is China. Since we were made there, we’ve got that covered too! @HolidayWorld pic.twitter.com/vpAol0JcgX
