Santa's Workshop

Some of Santa's elves stopped by for a sleepover.
(There wasn't much sleeping, however.)

The gingerbread men were on the run!

But they were caught by these foxy little ladies...

...and all dolled up...

...before their demise.

This workshop really hummed. The elves danced to The Chipmunks ("Alvin!") practiced a puppet show, rehearsed the Nativity play, watched The Snowman (a darling movie for Oma and Opa, too.) There were paper dolls to dress, stories to read, and carols to sing. (They sang spontaneously to all the folks riding on the elevator, walking down the hall, and delivering the mail!)

After the flurry of little footsteps disappeared, I sat down to catch my breath.
For two days.
