The Elves are Back: The Seventh Day of Christmas 2015

For a few years now, elves from the North Pole have stopped in on our little abode starting at midnight on the first day of Christmas. Leaving little trinkets - gum, Hershey Kisses, notepads etc. - but also leaving behind a letter for the girls to appreciate. The appreciation may not register until further down the road, but I have a feeling each letter represents a seed that will either flourish or dry up all depending on how well it's cared for and applied. The letters, while giving some sense of what goes on up north during this hectic time of year, also share anecdotal notes on life as well as the true meaning of Christmas.

The Seventh Day of Christmas:

Good morning, Darling Angels!

Once again we must say how proud we are of you. All of you are an important part of the Christmas play. The singing from stage sounds great, girls! And Madison, your job is important too and we know you’ll put your best effort into being part of the backstage crew. It’s important girls to always give your best effort no matter if it’s picking up a mess, raking the yard, doing homework or cleaning your rooms. Speaking of cleaning your rooms, Wow! It looks like you were spending time on your rooms. You must know the special secret. Santa LOVES clean bedrooms. Keep them clean. It’s not only what Santa likes, but it teaches you to take care of and respect your things.

I hope you girls had a good time together this weekend. We really need you to work on how to talk to one another in a nice manner because soon it will be Christmas vacation and you’ll be together a lot and you don’t want to put a damper on Christmas. So let’s work really hard on showing love and kindness while remembering this is the season not for getting things, but the season for which we were given the one true king.

Merry Christmas, girls! Work hard for us this week!

Your Elves,

Lip Smacker, Frozey Rosey and Rum Pum Pum Pum Pum
