I am a busy, busy guy. There are so many toys to make and so little time to Christmas!
Mrs. Claus has been by my side forever. She is as beautiful and special to me as the Northern Lights! She understands how busy I am.
She does, though, ask for a little time each week. Just the two of us. Time that does NOT involve dolls or robots or stuffed animals!
Every week we plan a fun night together. Sometimes we play cards. Sometimes we go for a walk. One time we painted mugs. The best part was filling them with cocoa later!
Tonight we had a quiet night. We sat in our camp chairs and enjoyed the sky. There are a TON of stars at the North Pole!
Suddenly we saw green bands of light pulsing in the sky. It was like green smoke streaking above us. They would fade and pulse again, like they were going on and off.
Kissy the Elf ran past us, heading for the woods. She had to help Clumsy with a “problem”, she said.
Within a few minutes, those amazing green lights were bright in the sky again. This time they stayed bright for a long time.
When Kissy returned, she had Clumsy the Elf with her. He was all wrapped up in cords.
“Ah, I guess that’s why the Northern Lights kept going out,” I said. Clumsy just gave me one of his silly little smiles.
Now that the Northern Lights were staying on, they were BEAUTIFUL!
P.S. Sometimes I can’t think of what to do with Mrs. Claus. What should we do together after Christmas? You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
