Hello there!!! HO!HO!HO! What a grand day today is! I woke to a wonderful breakfast from Mrs. Claus. I was then able to check my email and saw that I had a ton of new letters to answer! How wonderful! SO many questions! I love to see if I can get stumped by the questions you ask me. You little darlings are so smart! I look forward to the challenges! Well after going through some letters I decided to head into town. All the smells, sounds and lights were going again. I walked down to the bakery that Erty and Grey run and had to “sample” a few dozen of their wonderful treats. We sat and talked for a while and I thanked Erty again for her brave act. Grey and I talked about her little adventures and she talked about how much fun it was being over the rainbow but glad to be planted back in Christmas Town. After a while I headed on down the road to the stables to see the reindeer. I got down to the stables and there was Elf Zippy getting the reindeer in shape. Zippy said to me that she was giving Comet a little rest after his adventure with me but that all the reindeer will be ready on time for the big night. She said that the reindeer will be ready for a test run in a few days and that she is waiting on Elf Sharati to have the sleigh all ready for the first flight of the season. I said to Zippy, “Well, maybe I will stroll over there today.”
I walked over to the sleigh shop and there was Sharati under the sleigh. I asked “How are things going on the sleigh?” Sharati responded with “ I should be done tonight. I have regreased the bolts and polished and waxed the sleigh. I have made sure the GPS is on track, your weather reporter is fine-tuned and that the hot chocolate maker pipes out the perfect temperature for hot chocolate.” “HO!HO!HO! How wonderful. I will make preparations for a test flight to take place on the 15th.” “Sounds good Santa, I will coordinate it with Zippy and we will make it happen.” said Sharati.
I decided to head back to the workshop, for tonight is going to be a long night for me. HO!HO!HO! Tonight is the first checking of the 'Naughty and Nice' list. It is time to see where all you wonderful children are on the list (I am pretty sure the 'Nice' list is going to be rather full this year). I am going to say good night to you all, get a nice little snack and write some letters before I tackle the list. Have wonderful and glorious dreams my darlings and I will talk to you tomorrow. Good night and sleep tight!
