Elfie has gathered some of his farm animal friends for a boisterous Christmas Eve sing along as we anxiously await Santa’s arrival.
I am pretty sure I got things straightened out with the big guy in red after I had a stumble or two that had me on the naughty list. Elfie put in a good word for me with the big guy because they go way back. His negotiations with Santa on my behalf only cost me my stack of pancakes, three chocolate chip cookies (homemade made by our neighbors), sixteen mini marshmallows, four orange sherbet ice creams on a stick, a jar of jelly, a mini loaf of banana nut bread, and eight mini snicker bars.
Thank goodness we bartered before my gift of fudge from my friends in California was delivered. You should of seen his eyes bulge out of his head when he saw my homemade gift of fudge from Barbara!! Not to worry, I am sharing with him and Grandma Jo...However I did put the tin of fudge someplace safe so Elfie doesn’t go overboard on the sweets. I am trying my best to look out for the little man (Wink, Wink).
We all got a good laugh as we unwrapped a new ornament for the tree.... a carton of EGGS! It reminded us of Elfie’s little mishap last week as he tried to lift a ginormous egg with his back and not his knees (like I told him to do). Anyhow, with proper rest, care, and a delicious breakfast of farm fresh eggs...Elfie has developed a true love for eggs and continues working on his slight fear of chickens. His encounter with Joleen was something he will not soon forget. On occasion I may or may not walk up behind him and holler, BAWK, BAWK! Oh my gosh, I had no idea that elves could jump so high. I consider it part of his cardio workout. Even elves got to stay in shape.
Another new ornament this year is a beautiful handmade wire dove by Dodie. Elfie was super excited to add this to the tree. He said it brings him peace and joy. I caught him trying to feed the wire dove, reindeer feed in hopes that the dove would start flying around the living room. Gotta hand it to him, he is pretty clever.
Elfie wanted me to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas. He needs to get back to bringing cheer for all to hear as he is staying up to usher in the big day or 9:00 pm....whichever comes first because he still has a bedtime even if it is Christmas Eve.
Wishing GOOD CHEER to ALL!!
