No Business Like Elf Business

There is no one in the WORLD better at making toys than Santa's little helpers. These elves know what they are doing. Each year they work hard making toys for over 2 billion kids! One of my favorite movies of all time is ELF, staring Will Ferrell. From that movie comes a quote that proves my point about elves perfectly... Papa Elf says: "Another interesting, uh, elfism: Uh, there are only three jobs available to an elf. The first is making shoes at night, while, you know, while the old cobbler sleeps. You can bake cookies in a tree. As you can imagine, it's dangerous having an oven in an oak tree during the dry season. But the third job, uh, some call it, uh, 'The Show', or... or 'The Big Dance'. It's the profession that every elf aspires to, and that is to build toys in santa's workshop." It's a job only an elf can do. Our nimble fingers, natural cheer and active minds are perfect for toy building. They tried using gnomes and trolls but the gnomes drank too much and the trolls weren't toilet trained." Thus proving that elves are the best suited creature to be making all those toys. And thus, I will spend this month of December paying tribute to the mysterious, the cheerful, the wonderful North Pole Elves. Join me all month long as I have fun with the elves... Throughout these holidays I will be decorating with elves, coloring with elves, making toys out of elves, and watch out we might even become an elf! It will be a blast. As you participate in the Elf-ish fun by making comments to the posts you will be entered to win the free toy giveaway (Elf on the Shelf). I want to know... what is your favorite Christmas movie?
