You know the old axiom ..everything old is new again... well that is the theme of this week's post.
I have been hearing a lot of buzz about "Elf on the Shelf" and the crazy antics and limitless energy this little creature exhibits. Our grand children speak in hushed and revered voices about what the elf can "do", while I, on the other hand listen in amazement at the lengths the kids will go to behave in front of these creatures!!
Waaaay back ( probably before most of you reading this were born) a handsome young man gave me a cedar chest... I'm not explaining this one you have to look it up...for Christmas. As it was much to large to wrap he presented it to me with an arrangement of greenery and an elf sitting on top of it.
To this day, the now ancient elf still sits atop some piece of furniture in our home at Christmas time. His agility and color have severely faded but he still has a twinkle in his eye.
What do you suppose he is thinking of the youngsters that take his place today?
It just wouldn't be Christmas without my Elf somewhere in the house!
