Don't worry, I don't rhyme either. Not all elves are equipped with the rhyming gene! Besides, those warmbloods set some high standards. Don't they know that gift giving is an elf's job?
Wait till Eleanor gets her 2nd package. She's gonna flip! Grinched for 3 yrs, and now she's going to make up for all 3 of those years this year. We are on pins and needles because we worry that the package will get hung up in customs. Our postwoman, who knows both of us well, she's been our postwoman for almost 5 yrs, promised us that our 2nd package would not get lost.
We were so impressed with the ornament made by Starhouse and the sun catcher made by eventgroupie2 (who was recovering from knee surgery but still did all that work for us) that we, well, we cannot say what we did, as we are in witness protection. But we hope that ELeanor will get that package soon, so that she can show pix of the 2 items to all of you.
We will be back to rhyming when our package gets delivered. Meanwhile, Eleeanor should be drinking a couple of gallons of scottish breakfast tea each day from package #1.
Warmbloods can be elves too. If they can stay awake long enough and keep their concentration. (We got a 2nd thumbs down on coth. We do not like the new format!)
I missed the deadline.....Was staying with my friend who lost her husband unexpectedly and did not have a computer.....! I have been a participant for the past 5 years and really enjoyed the Secret Santa! I am so sorry I missed the deadline! Julie
In Santa's workshop far away,
Ten little elves work night and day.
This little elf makes candy canes,
This little elf builds streamlined trains,
This little elf dips chocolate drops,
This little elf makes lollipops,
This little elf makes great board games,
This little elf gives dolls their names,
This little elf packs each jack-in-the-box,
This little elf sews dolly socks,
This little elf wraps exciting books,
This little elf checks twice and looks,
As Santa packs them in his sleigh,
Ready for you on Christmas Day.
...after I learn a bit more about my giftee this year. I'll have to work on the rhyming thing, but in the meantime, Kathy R, can you tell me what your three favorite colors are, do you have pierced ears, are you or your horse allergic to any foods, do you prefer white or red wine, do you show, and do you like plaid?
