Santa always took first place, but he had elves and a team of flying reindeer. (78)

The bad news? His chariot wasn’t motorized.
The good news? His legs would never have cellulite. (96)

He double-checked his materials:

Eggs? Check.
Jelly beans? Check.

Once again, first place would elude his grasp. (127)

    Great Easter fun. Liked the middle one best.

  2. Kay L. Davies Says:

    Love this, especially the legs that would never have cellulite. Sigh.

    :) Got to have chocolate, GMa.

    All three are so clever and cute, Grandma. My fave is the third one. I mean, really, how could Mr. Bunny forget the chocolate?! There’s no way he deserves first place. Santa shouldn’t be allowed in the race—too many animals pulling his sleigh. I noticed Ms. Bunny’s smooth, cellulite-free legs, too. Motor-free chariots do have their advantages.

    No wonder his legs are so slim, but I thought the usual mode of transportation was hopping.
