HO! HO! HO! I am so relaxed! Yesterday was a GREAT day! The elves and I had such a nice day playing games, dancing, singing Christmas songs and eating lots of goodies. It was a nice break and a well deserved one after the lost time because of the wish and the elves making the comeback that they did. Though today it is time to get down to business. Today I have the big task of checking the list for the second time. This is the last time I will be able to check the list, the final decision I make tonight is the final chance to be on the nice list. I am hoping that I will have no-one on the naughty list.
I have gotten my study prepared. In my study sits a nice roaring fire, a whole bunch of cookies and cocoa and of course the list. Mrs. Claus has added a little surprise as well, a cute little kitten named Snowflake. She is a cute little kitten but she sure likes to attack my toes. I feel like I have to wear my boots all the time now. HO! HO! HO! It makes it worth it when she curls up under my beard at bedtime and purrs.
I promise you all this: I will look into each and every name tonight. I will weigh all and make the choice that is needed but I am sure all of you will be on the nice list. So, on that note, it is time for me to say my goodnights. It takes a long time to complete checking the list. I should be done by the time you wake in the morning. Goodnight my darlings and sleep tight. (P.S. be good I may be checking on you as I check your name on the list).
