Elves of the Day #2285

(Psst–keep this a secret until morning)

Laurel and Jamie spent most of the day patching together a present for their dad, who is renowned as Ungiftable, needing and wanting nothing. Their solution this year to gifting the ungiftable was a perfect Ugly Christmas Sweater, featuring a felted image of Santa Claus flying over a snow-laden neighborhood. Two strands of battery-powered lights and a string of little bells make the sweater a full-sensory experience, and to top it all off, Rudolph is spewing mid-flight onto an unfortunate snowman below.

It’s a marvelous piece they’ve made, and ultimately I think the gift is less for their dad than for everyone else who will get to see him wearing it.

I get to be part of the festivities tomorrow. Just being here is enough of a gift, but there’s a package or two waiting under the tree for me, too.

Better sleep, else Santa won’t come pick up some of the excess cookies we have…

tune my heart to sing
