Life Lessons From Buddy The Elf

   We delved into Christmas yesterday by listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies (have you plugged your ears or stopped reading yet??). I'm one of those people who believe in Christmas year-round, not just July and December....and a few years ago, I was introduced to the magical move "Elf". As we watched, I discovered that there are some important life lessons in there:

1. Don't eat yellow snow.
2. Don't eat gum off the street. (I have a 3yo who never seems to remember this one!)
3. Buy something pretty for that "someone special"
4. You're never too old to have an affinity for elf culture
5. 30-year reunions can be wonderful.
6. You're never too old for the naughty list or snowball fights.
7. Read, read, read!
8. Don't call angry elves "angry"
9. Four basic food groups: Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corn, and Syrup.
10. Smile!!!
11. Repurpose furniture with just a saw and a bit of wood glue!
12. It's always a good time to redecorate!
13. Everyone has a favorite color!

Have a great week!
