10 More Sleeps!

With only 10 more sleeps left until Christmas, our elfish adventures continue with some Christmas fun and another RACK assignment from Santa. 

Yesterday's letter from the jolly old dude revealed that Elfia has brought with her a special gingerbread surprise --- a gingerbread train kit. As a reminder for the real reason for Christmas, and the spirit with which we celebrate (not on the GIFTS but on Jesus, creating memories and giving back to others), yesterday's task was a perfect opportunity to create a father/daughter memory. After dinner my hubby and kiddo set out to create their gingerbread masterpiece. For over an hour they slaved away, sampled a little too much icing and bonded over their creation. It was precious to watch them enjoy this moment together...


This morning Elfia was discovered enjoying a snowy bubble bath in our guest bathroom, complete with her own rubber duckie. 


Today's letter from Saint Nicholas is a RACK assignment is a chance to practice our generosity as we head to the pet store later today and then to a local animal shelter to make a donation of kibble to the adoptable doggies waiting for homes. A good reminder that God cares about ALL of his creation and calls us to do the same.

Shari, I have enjoyed your Elfia posts. Maybe next year I will try something like it. Found this similar idea (kindness elf) and thought you'd be interested: http://theimaginationtree.com/2013/11/alternative-elf-on-shelf-tradition-kindness-elf.html
