I had the honor of sitting in on a "get together" the elves had this morning. The main topic was the reindeer jokes. The older elves told all the new elves about every joke and trick the reindeer have and would play on unsuspecting elves. A vote was taken and they decided to "get back' at the reindeer. They divided into groups to come up with jokes to play themselves. I can't wait to see the look on the reindeer faces.
After the "get together" I went back to the workshop and for a change was the only one there for about 20 minutes. It was weird, I kept hearing voices and was so sure I saw the Sprites and Hobbits running all over the shop. One time I heard a loud crash and the scratching of feet. I went running because I know that all the Imps, Sprites and Hobbits had left Christmas town and gone home. What I found was the bin of truck and car wheels was knocked over and a group of ferrets were having a great time chasing the rolling wheels all over the floor. I stood and watched them for what seemed like hours but was really only about 12 minutes. If the wheel stopped and fell over the ferrets would either pick it up and hide it or take their front paws and stand the wheel up and then nudge it with their noses to get it rolling again The elves started coming in and Farlayla stepped on a wheel and fell right on her butt and the ferret that was playing with it gave her a good talking too! Since Farlayla's job is painting the hummers yellow and she sits down, Jingles got her one of the "boo boo" pillows.
I went home and told Mrs. Claus all about the fun I saw today while we ate dinner and we both laughed.
