Like clockwork, this year we discovered more elf magic. On the evening of December 1st, as we slept soundly, not one but TWO playful elves arrived in my little hometown in Ohio. We were absolutely delighted to see our old pal, Ella. She looks wonderful, and I think the cool weather here in Ohio suits her lovely complexion. Her cheeks are nice and rosy and she has a healthy glow about her.
It turns out, Ella has had a very eventful year... Not only did she receive the Elf of the Year award from Santa Claus himself, she also met Nate, a handsome male elf at her awards ceremony. It was love at first sight while they mingled under a spray of mistletoe, and they've been together ever since. In fact, they're newlyweds and my home is their Honeymoon destination of choice! They just couldn't wait to see my little ones, Sophie and Xander, and of course our fur-babies, too!
First we discovered Ella and Nate hanging around on one of our wrought iron votive holders. According to them, they like the vantage point they get from this space, since it allows them to see out the window and spy on our slightly creepy neighbors. They're probably penning a letter to Santa now telling them that he'll need some coal in his sleigh for sure!
Suzanne passed away many years ago from Melanoma. I remember her very fondly, since I have known my husband since I was 13. She was a caring, giving woman and a joy to be around.
Sadly, Suzanne was not there to see her little boy get married to me...She never got to meet her grandkids....I think Ella wanted us to know that while Suzanne may not be here physically to spend the Holidays with us, she is definitely there in spirit. Thank you, Ella, for this comforting message.
It's not too early to have your little ones write to Santa asking for some Elf Magic. I hear he has elves standing by with all different hair and skin tones, boys and girls, ready to come to homes and spread some Holiday cheer!This is a fun-filled Holiday tradition that has been around for decades. The best part? Anyone can participate!
Elf Magic was the first Elf tradition to be introduced to the market and sold as a complete set, and it’s the only tradition that allows your child play and cuddle with their Elf. Their magic is not lost if a child touches the Elf, and children never have to worry that an elf is watching them to report to Santa on their behavior like some other traditions. The Elf MagicElf is not used to modify a child’s behavior; therefore the child and elf become Best Elf Friends Forever (BEFF). Elf Magic captures Christmas spirit you can hold in your hand and feel in your heart.
Look for more posts about Ella and Nate soon! I know they're going to keep us on our toes!
