On Christmas Eve, we wanted to thank our “Secret Elves” somehow so we made brownies with peppermint extract and ground candy-cane in them and set them on the porch with a note thanking them. Their kind gifts they brought everyday really made our first Christmas away from family much more enjoyable as well as fun since we had something to look forward to each night. That afternoon they left us our final gifts with the note:
“On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Twelve drummers drumming!…”
This story will spread the true Christmas spirit. Remember the Christ every time that you hear it!
A Star for the Tree..
The book “The Little Drummer Boy”
They also finished off giving us the rest of the figurines for the nativity as well as the book that the nativity came in. I am so grateful that they shared their creativity and gifts with us! This was a Christmas we won’t forget!
