Visit from the Elf...

Earlier this fall, J lost several toys & his coveted blue plaid puppy sleeping bag to a Love & Logic learning lesson about picking up his toys.  I'm happy to report, J has worked very hard to earn them back, which we said - he could possibly do... He'd have to ask Santa for them, as only Santa would have the power to replace his old toys with brand new versions of the ones he lost for the little boy who was in need of them toys.  While he really wanted his toys back, he said he doesn't want to take them from the little boy who doesn't have all that he has, but if Santa could replace them, then yes, he really wanted his toys & most importantly his sleeping bag back.

We've had this discussion often.

Fast forward, Cousin Camryn really wants to have a "sleepover" while we are visiting them before Thanksgiving.  This is the letter Aunt Kristi found on her front porch this morning, along with J's sleeping bag.

He truly couldn't be happier.

Mommy may have been shocked to learn, our Elf named himself this year... Thank you to my dear boss for the help & the creativity...

Dearest Jacob –

Santa heard through his vast network, that you would be in need of your sleeping bag this weekend with your cousins; Camryn, Mallory & Baby Caleb.

He is very proud of your generous heart in helping mommy shop for the soldiers and the Humane Society. I’m sure those soldiers will be very thankful for the green soap and fiber bars you selected, and I know the animals are very thankful for your kindness that has given them full tummies and clean potty boxes.

During this Christmas season, Santa and all of his Elves hope you will continue to think of those who are less fortunate than you. We hope you will continue to grow your generous heart in the name of our Lord God.

I’m looking forward to joining you in your home shortly, but remember you must NEVER touch me.

With Love,

Your Secret Elf


Luke 2:13-14

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, (14) “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
