Seriously? How can you have Christmas if your stockings have been ripped right off the mantelpiece????
In our house, our expert Seekers of Lost Stockings have always saved the day, and this year was no different.
We even added a seeker to the mix to increase our chances of getting our Christmas celebration back on track..
Of course he needed to be comforted a bit before the hunt. Lost stockings means lost candy... Oh My!!
All was well when the stockings were discovered.
The seekers from former years considered the hunt rather lame since the stockings were recovered much more quickly than usual, but we figure the Grinch, despite the size of his heart, had our wee littlest in mind when he wrecked havoc on this year's Christmas festivities.
After Ben read the Christmas Story from Luke...
And Jesus was placed in the manger....
And after Aaron and Papa put on the Messiah for background music...
We got about the business of opening presents...
Yes - Ben did buy Elijah a My Little Pony... Brotherly Love at its silliest!!
So Christmas was saved by my hero boys and all is well. Hopefully that nasty Grinch will stay away next year!!!
