The toys were delivered and Santa had returned, but before he took a well deserved nap, he gathered the elves for a Christmas portrait. Yes, even Jemima and Grinchy were included.
Jemima wasn't quite sure if Santa had any idea about the disappearance of the toys and all of the chaos she'd caused but she figured she better come clean and ask for forgiveness or who knows what her fate might be. Santa just smiled and gently replied, "Of course you're forgiven, Jemima. Love and forgiveness is the spirit of Christmas, that began in a humble stable in Bethlehem many years ago. All you have to do is BELIEVE." "I believe!" whispered Jemima. Will Jemima be taken off the naughty list and return as a full fledged member of the crew next year? Well, that remains to be seen...but in the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thanks so much to Diana, Hope, Jr. and all of the Elf friends and family that make the Elf Antics Linky Party at DL.Art such a fun event each year.
