I’m sure you’ve heard about my elves. They really are “Santa’s little helpers”!
Would you like to hear a “short” story about “Santa’s little helpers”? (Oh, that was funny! My little helpers always laugh at those jokes!)
Maybe you think that I can do anything. I am Santa Claus after all!
But, just like you, I do need a helping hand sometimes. I learned a good lesson today about asking for help.
I wanted to build a tiny doll house for Mouse the Littlest Elf. I wanted it to look just like a real house!
I worked and worked until I had a lovely pink doll house with blue shutters. It took me hours just to make the roof!
It looked great! But when I was done with the outside, the inside was still empty. That simply would not do! I wanted the house to look real, even on the inside.
I tried to make a tiny table. I tried to make a tiny bed. You can even see them in my blueprints. Have you ever tried to use a tiny hammer? Have you ever tried to use a tiny saw?
Well, the bed I made was too big. It did not even fit in the house!
After a long time, I thought it was time to ask for help.
My elves have small hands. They can make tiny things better than I can. And, it is lots of fun to work with friends!
I asked a few elves to help me. We had a nice doll house for Mouse the Littlest Elf in no time, inside and out. And it was thanks to “Santa’s little helpers”!
I think Mouse the Littlest Elf is going to be very happy Christmas morning!
P.S. Please don’t tell Mouse the Littlest Elf what she’s getting for Christmas!
