Because I was on a blog break this past Christmas Season - let me share a little of what happened around here.
We had our Christmas Open House at work the first weekend of November and because I know no other way to describe how busy we were from that day until Christmas I will just say it was "On like Donkey Kong" I never knew what that meant until I ran, sprinted, jumped, ducked, and squatted for 2 months straight. Mario had nothing on us.
During all the chaos of open house, extra customers, and gift wrapping just about everything we sold, we decided to build a float for our city's Christmas Parade which was on December 1st.
So, we built it before, after, and during work and put it together THE morning of the parade!!
Here we are:
Then, we went straight back to work on Monday and were full steam ahead until Christmas Eve at 3:00! In the meantime, we got "real" elf costumes and wore them to work every single day...and even to an early morning trip to the TV station! People loved it! It was just a season of bringing joy and happiness to people! It is amazing the happiness a silly costume can bring to someone. A regular trip to the post office becomes magical when you are dressed like an elf...and it excites every child around!
So, that is the story of how I officially became possibly the tallest Christmas elf this year.
