Our Elf is Flying!! He used Fishing line to hang.   Once the fan is on, he really gets going!!!

So Sleepy from all the shenanigans

A Magic Key!

He found some of our sand from the beach this summer.  He’s a Mermaid Elf! Try saying “MeMarkle the Merry Merman” 3 times quickly!  We have been trying, and laughing ourselves silly.

This is where he is today:

These little Santa’s Mrs. Memarkle is with today were made by my Grandmother.  She passed away when I was only 9 years old.  She made them by hand, and I can’t tell you how much they mean to me. My Mother used to hang them over our fireplace when I was little, and now they hang in my house each year.  On each belt, she has our names.  On for my Mom, my Dad, my sister, brother, and one for me.  Each one has hand painted eyes to match our color.  It wouldn’t be Christmas without them.  Funny how little things like this are so priceless.

  1. That is so sweet.. It is so nice to have beautiful memories… I remember many from when I was a little girl. We always had a real tree because my Dad sold them every year.. It was a special time because we were all together. My Dad would put the tree in the stand add water, then my Mom would get up on the ladder and put snow on just about every branch. I can still see her doing that. She mixed Lux flakes and water to make the snow.( you are probably too young to remember Lux flakes. it was a mild detergent) It looked so beautiful, just like real snow. After the snow dried, we could place all the ornaments and icicles on the tree. After the tree was all decorated and looking beautiful (so we thought) we would have cookies and milk. To me, that is a priceless memory..
