Then we scurried home to enjoy hot toddies and Christmas music. My dear neighbor, Raymond, came by to help us celebrate, and a lovely time was had by all. I must confess I got a little tipsy, and put on my elf outfit.I should explain that the reason I have this costume is because I got a job as Santa's Little Helper at Urth Cafe over the holidays. I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful time I had! Hugging and kissing everyone who passed. I especially enjoyed the children and they all seemed to like me, too. As an added bonus, I now having an entry for my resume -- surely my elf impersonation will show any director that I have wide ranging acting abilities.
As if my December wasn't already overflowing with wonders, my dear friend, Helen, invited me over for a play date with Bella and Toby. She has a HUGE yard, and we ran up and down the stairs for hours. Do you know about stairs? I'd never actually seen a whole flight before, but after a couple of tries I got the hang of it. Just remember, if the step is as tall as you are, get all your feet on the first step before you try to climb up to the next one.
