It’s official. I have received word from up north that Ernie, our shelf elf, is on his way with an ETA of midnight at our house. (Of course that’s when I’ll be home from work digging him out of his basement box he’s been hiding in all year.) The plan is for Ernie to discover Christmas gifts already purchased by Mom and Dad for Charlotte and Thomas, wrap them with our paper and put them under the tree where he’ll be perched to greet them tomorrow morning. Then Dave came up with a brilliant plan–one far exceeding the pea brain intelligence of an elf. He said Ernie could take some of the wrapped gifts away at night should bad behavior prevail. I love it! Gifts today, possibly gone tomorrow… talk about your month-long incentive plan to be good! I can’t wait for Ernie’s beady blue eyes to shine when the sun rises.
