Dear Santa, I can ... I can explain! The House was merrily decorated, The entry hearth brightly lit, warming new arrivals while sheltering the house from the cold winds... The staff was hard at work preparing a feast (Did you hear something in the herb garden? ... No... just... my imagination, never mind...) Gifts and entertainments stand ready The upstairs rooms are tidy and neat, should any guest need a respite, or place to rest.... But... I should have known... A Hot tub party in Halas is just a BAD IDEA! Santa is going to be soooo pissed! Well, I've been playing around with this one for ages, as my playtime has been seriously limited lately, but I finally decided to just go ahead and post it. I may revisit and finish off all the rooms I blocked off for now, but ... here it is! The idea hit me back when they first put in the outdoor areas in, and everyone started putting in pools. It made me giggle enough that I couldn't resist. I hope you find it as amusing!
