Our elf flew into town on Friday night after Ryan went to bed. He filled me in on his job, the fact that if Ry touches him he will lose his magic, and expressed his desire to meet Ryan at a special breakfast the next morning. I obliged.
We had snow covered donuts with Santa Clause toppers.
Red and green scrambled eggs.
And hot chocolate straight from the North Pole.
Then we met our elf, read his story, named him Dash, and read the letter he wrote Ryan. It said:
I’m so happy to be assigned as your new elf friend! Santa says you are one special boy! I can’t wait to see all the nice things you do to keep yourself on Santa’s nice list! I’m rooting for you to keep yourself out of trouble. You don’t want to get switched to the naughty list!
I will spend my days watching you and my nights reporting back to Santa about your behavior. And, of course, I’ll have a little fun at night doing some silly activities. Each morning you will have to find me and see what I’ve been up to at night!
To introduce myself, I brought you a few small presents along with a yummy breakfast! Snow covered donuts and warm hot chocolate straight from the North Pole should get you in the Christmas spirit! I also brought you some of Santa’s stationary so you can write the big man your Christmas wish list.
I can’t wait to get to know you better. I can already tell that we’ll become best friends!
Candy canes and mistletoe,
Your new elf
Next, we opened up the presents Dash got us. We all got a pair of Christmas socks to keep our toesies warm this winter. Ryan also got a coloring book, Santa magnets, and a Santa glow wand.
To finish off the morning we wrote letters to Santa.
|Yes, Ryan told us what he wanted. Then he asked Dad to help him draw each one of us.|
It was such a fun morning and a great way to start off the Christmas season. And it only took a few minutes to put together. Awesome!
|So I'm pretty sure my dog hates me. But Ryan loved it, so it was totally worth it!|
Has your elf arrived yet?
