We woke up this morning to snow falling and the Magic Mail Mailbox so full that the lid wouldn’t close! After writing Santa last night and putting the letters in the mailbox, then sprinkling the magic North Pole dust on the letters, the letters were magically sent to Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole. When we awoke this morning we had received letters back from Santa! Santa also sent us one of his friends to stay with us until Christmas. We’re excited because this is the first time a tiny scout elf has come to stay with us for Christmas time! He also sent peppermint chap stick for the boys like the kind he uses when he is flying in the sleigh. Santa told the boys he was very excited that they wanted to become elf apprentices. Because of that, Santa’s head elf Albi sent toy soldiers for them to finish painting and the Snow Fairies sent a snow flake ornament to decorate.
It seems our elf was supposed to be here right after Thanksgiving, but I guess our elf got held back a week in flight training for what is being call the eggnog latte incident. I guess our elf drank 14 eggnog lattes at the opening of the new North Pole coffee shop. Then he flew around the workshop for more than two days straight leaving a trail of syrup on just about everything! Our elf finally gave out while doing loopty loops in the retro toy department; where he fell into sticky tangle of slinky toys and hula hoops. It took another two days to get the jittery elf untangled! It figures our elf would have a caffeine and sugar addiction lol. Well I’m sure we’ll be sharing any trouble our elf might happen to get into while he is visiting us so stay tuned. This year we also had the pleasure of sharing our Magic Mail Mailbox with a friend! A little boy who was in need of some Christmas magic and it was so much fun to have him with us. The Magic Mail Mailboxes are such a fun tradition. We hope you are having a merry magical weekend! *Shawn*
