December 8, 2016
According to our countdown app on our new watches Santa made especially for us, it is 2 weeks, 2 days, 0 hours and 44 minutes until CHRISTMAS!
So, until the BIG day, do you and the family have any PLANS? Winter Wonderlandy kind of plans? Up at the POLE, all the elves live in ONE big community. Kind of like YOUR neighborhood. But there are so MANY of us so our neighborhood is quite large. Anyway, we all love stringing up lights and putting out decorations on the LAWN. Then, one of our favorite things to do, is walking around AND inhaling the Christmas atmosphere. We sing and sip cocoa. Sometimes we head over to the big LAKE and ice skate for hours. Maybe you and your family could go see some lights this weekend. Whatever you decide to do, appreciate and enjoy the time together.
I hope you liked last night’s ABCs of Christmas that Hop, Skip and Jump wrote for you. They sent me a few more letters to add on to it.
D For DECORATING with DADDY and Mommy and sisters
For the long DRAWN out melodic notes of Christmas tunes
For the DISPLAY of the star that rest upon the tippy top of this year’s tree
E For EVENING time, a time of rest – at least we hope – but, as the chimes of
Christmas get nearer and nearer, we become EXCITED and restless
For EVERY tear, chuckle and grin
For the range of EMOTIONS that people feel this time of year…we’re thankful
for HIS unENDING grace, comfort and peace.
F For FIRES crackling in FIREPLACES or stoves
For FRIENDS that FILL us up with cheer
For FEARS that are conquered by joy
For FAMILY Christmas memories FRAMED and hung with care
That’s all they gave us for tonight. We’ll be sure the next trio of elves BRING more tomorrow night…if you like.
Keep up the great work, girls! It sounds like all of you are doing wonderfully in school and helping out with the Christmas play. There is no such thing as small parts. Every part is important, just like every member of your FAMILY is important.
The GRAYBILLS are a blessing. We are thankful for you and appreciate you. Now, go, and be a BLESSING to others and show them that the Lord Jesus Christ lives in your HEART.
We love you!
Kit, Kaboodle and Snowball
