We watched the Seahawks play football. They played the Baltimore Ravens and won! 35 to 6. We decided to play some football ourselves out in the yard. I caught my very first catch. OOF! A football is really heavy. It was also my last catch. Now I'm on the injured list with multiple fractures all over my body.

More Goodies! Gramps makes yummy fruitcakes. They have all kinds of dried fruit and nuts in them. There's figs, dates, blueberries, cranberries and three kinds of raisins. Plus, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple. It like cherries the best. Fruitcake goes so fast; he has to make four or five each holiday season.

Last night a huge windstorm blew in. Trees were swaying in the wind. Rain poured. All of a sudden, lightning flashed and thunder boomed. Chrismouse and I came straight out of bed. I grabbed a flashlight real quick. The power didn't come back on until 6PM. I sure like electricity.

I went back to the North Pole to give a report to Santa. Lots of bad things happened this week. All the little kids were very good. Santa's sad that they have to suffer because of bad people running around. Hopefully all the good people will still have a merry Christmas regardless of the world's problems.
Poinsettias are so cheerful for the season. I decided to sit on a shelf above them all day. Too bad they don't have a fragrance. Oh well.
We went to the flower shop to purchase a couple poinsettias. We even got one for Great-grandmother.
We went shopping for poinsettias at the Christmas store. Oh what fun! I played hide and seek. The store clerks didn't think it was funny. We bought our flowers and left really quick.

Elfis returned to the North Pole and visited Santa's reindeer. He hopped on Rudolph's back and they romped through the winter wonderland. Rudolph got some great practice for Christmas Eve. He didn't get off the ground, tho. He needs to lose some weight. (Like the rest of us.)

Every adventure begins with a great cup of coffee. Elfis (Elvis) loves the red cup. When his energy level is at max capacity, we will celebrate the Christmas season in style. Check last months activities. (November) Start at the bottom of the page.

Let's play the game 'Find Elfis'. We went shopping on Black Friday. I'll never do that again. I got shoved and stepped on several times. Plus, I couldn't understand a word they were saying. People were just crazy; buying all kinds of junk. I'm heading back to the North Pole to recuperate.

Elfis attended the Sasquatch Summit and heard all kinds of Bigfoot stories. He also had his own personal encounter. When someone cranked up a chainsaw, they escaped by the skin of their teeth and headed up into the mountains.

ADVENTURES OF ELFIS
Last night it snowed so Elfis (Elvis elf) decided to commence his seasonal adventures. He usually doesn't appear until after Thanksgiving. It was a freak snow. Temperatures in the valley hovered around forty degrees. On the plateau and foothills it was about 33 degrees. The oddest thing was on the east side of the mountains it was forty. Usually it's colder over there. Hopefully the snow stays in the mountains. Skiers love it up there. Drivers don't like it down here.

I volunteered at Powellswood Storytelling festival and met the best national storyteller, Donald Davis. Also met an international storyteller, Margaret McDonald. The beautiful gardens was the perfect setting for storytelling.

I was just elected Toastmasters Secretary at Puyallup Valley Voices. I also received the Competent Communicator award by completing ten speeches in the CC manual. My public speaking has improved tremendously. Thank you fellow Toastmasters for assisting me on my journey.
