After the boys went to school this morning Sammy, our elf passed me a note from Santa. The note said that Santa has an oversized package for the boys that just wasn’t going to fit on his sleigh on Christmas Eve. He really wanted the boys to have this particular package though because he had this item when he was young and loved it. Would I be a dear and retrieve the package from his drop off location? It only weighs 165 pounds. Oh, and by the way, could I also build the item for him on Christmas Eve since he is so busy on that particular night and just would not have the time to do it. Can you believe it?
Thanks to my wonderful family – my brother’s truck and my dad’s assistance – we were able to accommodate Santa this year. Hopefully the building part will not take too long. Santa made a similar request a couple of years ago… Let’s just say it was a late night. I’ll post pictures after Christmas.
Aidan’s teacher sent home interesting homework today. She asked the kids that have elves staying with them to bring in “Elfies,” which apparently are selfies of an Elf on the Shelf. I thought she wanted a selfie of Aidan with his elf, but Aidan explained to me that it should just be Sammy in the picture. We have plenty of those! Sammy loves Elfies! We were able to make a cute collage of some of Sammy’s antics so far this year. To bad my printer ran out of ink halfway through printing it.
My brother decided to get in on the Elfies too. He claims that Jack Frost, their elf, is having too much fun while he is at work. So he gave it a try. Isn’t that hysterical?!
It was a balmy 26 degrees today when I went running. I even waited until lunchtime to hit the warmest part of the day! It beats the 22 degree temperature at my normal running time, I guess. Truthfully though, I like running in the cold.
This is mostly true. Once you are running it is not cold anymore. Today the only part of me that felt cold was my eyes. Strange, but true. When I ran in the sleet the other day the only part of me that was cold was my lungs. I need some other runners to corroborate me here, I think.
Fezziwig does not like the cold, no matter what. He prefers to be nestled under his blanket – warm and cozy.
He has to go outside, of course. Today he finally saw the snowman. Fezzy does not like snowmen!! Seriously. My little dog who never barks will bark like crazy if he sees a snowman. It is hard not to laugh. I know he is very serious!
So after his “encounter” with Frosty today he ran straight for his bed. He didn’t even wait to take his coat off. LOL
So, I am wondering, what was the latest you stayed up on Christmas Eve helping Santa?
