Alphabe-Thursday - The Letter E

My assignment today, begins in a castle high on a mountain, with endless banks of snow in the land of "Endless-good-cheer" and sleds full of extra-delicious cookies.

Jenny's letter for today couldn't be more exciting.  It's the letter E!  


Every now and then, the exact letter engulfs our lessons, exactly like our letter E today.

Once upon an Elf's life, (and yes, this is based on a true story)

The older Elves were busy hanging holiday cheer all around, and singing "very delicate and sweet" Elf tunes.

Some of the more adventurous Elves were extra-silly as they fixed themselves in ticklish predicaments.  But even through all and any trouble they encountered, their endless list of chores would surely be completed, one by one.

From the castle's royal parlor, to the endless workshops, chuckles and laughter and screams of joy could quite possibly be heard from distant lands. They were all behaving just pure silly, especially once their chores were complete!

Surprise!  Surprise!

The lady Elves were stuck in the kitchen, baking and kneading and rolling and decorating.  You were sure to see cookies stuffed in pockets and each tiny Elf had at least one cookie in one of their hands at all times!

Just rest assured every single Elf is quite hard at work in the hopes that everyone will be pleased again, all around the world.

Thank you Judie, it is a fun place, and I got to share it again with some family. That really doubles the pleasure. Besides, who doesn't love at least one Elf, right!
