A very Merry Christmas

Santa arrived at Ella and Kate's house as expected.  First the stockings.  There are usually new socks to keep our feet warm in this Denver winter months (too many of them) and then some surprises.  Santa left an image of himself in the form of a chocolate pop.  Kate immediately took a bite of his head and let out a little scream.  Her tooth came right out in Santa's head!!!!!
Look carefully!  Can use see the tooth at Santa's hairline?
