December 12

Things here are getting very exciting. It’s only 12 more days until the team and I go on our big trip! I can feel the excitement in the air. The reindeer are very busy practicing take offs and landings. The team will take off and land, a young one will take a member’s spot and then they would take off and land two times to give the young one practice. When I asked why Donner said, “Santa, we all know we are getting older. We have chosen a few exceptional young ones who, with training, could step in at a moment’s notice and perform that certain job”. How can I argue with reasoning like that? The young ones were literally walking on air; they were so excited having been chosen. I watched the practice for about 45 minutes with some of the other reindeer. We laughed, cringed, and covered our eyes. If it weren’t for the experience of the team some of the young ones would be young forever! I was worried one of the team would be injured but they always pulled it out with everyone safe and then would go over what the young reindeer had done wrong before taking off and landing one more time to show the group the correct way of doing it. It’s a good thing they were using a practice sleigh and not the real none so the weight was much lighter. Besides, I dread thinking what the real sleigh would look like when this session was done. Speaking of the big sleigh, Angel called me this morning and said the sleigh is scheduled for “tune-up” on the 15th. That’s good, it gives Micky and his team seven days to fix whatever they find and clean and polish it.

The elves are singing more and I see some dancing on their breaks, lunch and even when their work is done. I took a short walk and happened to be following Paintsalot and was watching her dance all the way home. I’m sure she didn’t notice me, she was too busy “getting’ down”. I marvel every year at how the excitement builds as we get closer to Christmas Eve. I just know they excitement level won’t ever be topped but it is – the next year the level is even higher. Good thing we have high ceilings! *Wink and chuckle* *Chuckle and wink*

The answer to yesterday’s SantaSearch Hunt is:

No, Even though the elves work daily, SantaSearch does not have all the lyrics, tunes and sheet music to all of the songs in our library.
