We’ve had an “Elf on the Shelf” for three years now, and he has brought many fun things to our Christmas season. From mischief (toilet-papering the living room, making a snow angel in sugar on the kitchen counter) to memories (he brings our gingerbread house each year, and this year he put all of the candy canes on our Christmas tree), Cheewee provides daily entertainment. He helps us all to believe in the magic of Christmas with all of the special things that he brings. One of the most special came to us today:
Our elf Cheewee came back from the North Pole this morning bearing the golden ticket! It’s time again this year for “The Polar Van Express”, and we should have a perfect night for it. We’ll pack up our Bing Christmas CD and some hot chocolate to go and ride around looking at Christmas lights until we’ve had our fill. There seem to be more homes decorated this year, so we might need to pack a thermos of hot chocolate for refills. Maybe even some peppermint sugar cookies (man cannot live by hot chocolate alone!). It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..
And today (Monday), I can update with a couple of pictures from our PVE adventure. First came the preparation of cookies and hot chocolate (and the inevitable swatting of the cookie monster…):
