A SPECIAL DELIVERY



 TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.....

Santa and his reindeer had already been around the world delivering parcels for good little girls and boys,

when out of the blue-!

He remembered that he had
ONE MORE
SPECIAL DELIVERY TO MAKE
TO CANADA

and since Santa had already given the elves and the reindeer the rest of the night off,
he decided to make the journey, by himself on foot!

He set out with a small sled loaded with
packages and trudged from the North Pole through the Yukon and was now in
Northern British Columbia when
he suddenly realized that he might actually be lost!
Uh Oh!
Rudolph (with his nose so bright)
had been born with a natural GPS in his snout,
whereas
Santa nose just looked like a cherry and was otherwise useless
 in getting him
from point A to point B
Yet Santa was undeterred!
"I KNOW I'll find Vancouver if I just keep moving south!" Santa said to himself with a sigh

Santa had an important job to do
and thus, 

he was determined to get-'er  done!
His sled was spilling over with special gifts 

for a certain someone, and he was going to get them delivered to their destination 
on Christmas Eve 

 even if it meant-
(gasp!)

asking for directions!



But whom to ask?????
Just then
Santa saw something twinkling in his eye
someone he thought he knew,
could it be...?!

Yes it Was!!!

The iceman cometh!  
 

Santa was Saved! 


"Ho Ho Ho!"
said Santa
"Do you know the way to Vancouver, Mr. Iceman?
I need to get there Fast,
and I was wondering if you know the quickest route?"
"Indeed I do!" said the Iceman
"Do you see these pine cones on the snow, Santa?"
"Yes I do!" Santa replied
 "Well, just  follow this trail of pinecones and you'll be in Vancouver 

before the moon is high in the midnight sky!"







"Ho Ho Ho!"
said Santa merrily

"Thank You, Mr. Iceman:
you're a really cool guy!"
and touching his finger
aside his nose,
off down the trail
 Santa did go!
"You're Welcome Santa 
and oh,
by the way....,
THANK YOU
 for my new Air Conditioner,
and the new 'FROZEN' Disney dvd that 

were on my Christmas List! "
yelled the Iceman, 
as he waved Santa, goodbye.
 
"And REMEMBER- FOLLOW THE TRAIL OF PINE CONES!"

"I WILL!"

said Santa with great relief.
And away he went
finally headed in the right direction.

And so it was that
 record time and before he knew it,
Santa was in Vancouver, Canada, 

with his very special delivery, still in tow. 
He had written down the address before he'd left 
the North Pole 
and pulled it out of his pocket just to double check. 
"Yup! this is the place" he said to himself.
Then laying his finger aside his nose
 up onto the roof he flew, 
then the down the chimney he slid, 
dragging the heavy sled behind him.  
To be honest,
it was a bit of a tight squeeze and when he'd thought about it later, he realized that he could've just left the sled on the front porch, 

but hey...!
 what's done is done!  

He deposited all the gifts he had been transporting, under the Christmas tree
and was headed home again before you could say

"Bob's your uncle!"

"High Ho High Ho it's home from work I go!"
Santa whistled happily to himself as he headed back to the North Pole.


And so that's how the
SPECIAL DELIVERY
for
Elizabeth
from
Birgit in Germany
Actually Happened~

honest!😉



"WHAT'S THIS!?"
said Elizabeth with great wonder
 when she discovered the package of surprise packages under her tree.
"Could this be from Birgit?"
"I must open it right now and see!"

and of course
It WAS from Birgit!

and it was filled with an assortment 
of teeny tiny treasures!

There was a Beautiful handmade
Christmas Card 

with the following inscription inside:
with a holiday photo of
Fluby and Rosey
as well as a personal note from
Birgit herself 

which
Elizabeth has saved and placed inside her journal. 




There was a separately wrapped gift  
which contained

A very special calendar; 
with each month: a garden of Beary Bears! 
❤️
and well as 
some
Dee- licious
marzipan 
which lasted-
hmmm....?

(perhaps I won't tell you how long they didn't last!)
hee hee

but I will tell you that they were 
finger licking good! 

Included inside Santa's
Special Delivery
were some wee boxes of golden Bears!
and
Some teeny weeny Snowmen ornaments!


Right away there was a hubbub of the familiar
Meet and Greet 

as they each congratulated themselves and the others
on arriving safe and sound;
carrot noses intact and bear ears still on

Hooray!!! 

Now Let's Dance!

Soon there was a square dance going on
with the golden bears
"do-sa-do-ing" and "allemande left-ing" 

with each tiny snowman
What a hoot that was to watch! 

YEE HAW! 
"now bow to your partner!"

after which 
they all collapsed in laughter and happy exhaustion


BUT WAIT!
there were many other things inside the package too! There were
Pearl beads, a buddha, and a duck;
fancy beads and scissors
wooden spools; an alarm clock,
metal charms and gingerbread men;


a length of cotton lace, numbers,
 a healthy succulent in a cup,

And room for a pony!  

Birgit also included this
Extra Special
Traditional Christmas gift
with origins from the
German Ore Mountains! 
❤️❤️
Elizabeth treasures every precious item from Birgit and can't wait to feature some of them in her upcoming blogs!
(with the exception of the marzipan of course)

So THANK YOU
Fluby and Rosey and 

Especially Birgit! 
"May your days be MERRY AND BRIGHT
and may ALL your Christmases be white!"


and 

"GOD BLESS US
EVERY ONE!"

❤️
