Kirstie's Christmas monster challenge

Don't want it at our house. It's in the garage where I left it in the dark after I'd 'created' it. I'm bound to nightmare tonight.

This really is a scary monster, Michael. Like Carole, I saw it last night but didn't want to post a comment, affraid of nightmares!!!!

I suppose monsters should frighten people Mia but I think I've gone too far with this one.

Glad I didn’t see it until this morning could read many things in to this, reminds me of one of my
