Elaine's favorite song at the caroling party was "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."  (12/23/12)

Anticipating the morrow.  (12/24/12)

Cookies and milk for Santa.  And a handful of reindeer food to sprinkle outside.  (12/24/12)

"Wow!  Well, the glass of milk is empty!  The cookies are all gone!  That means Santa ate and drank the milk and cookies!"  Then, she sang a spontaneous song about the pictures cross-stitched on our stockings and declared that she had always wondered what colorful candy canes -- like the ones poking out of her stocking -- tasted like.  (12/25/12)

Elaine was excited to try the astronaut ice cream from her stocking, but she didn't really like it.  Apparently Santa should stick to cherry flavored candy canes.  (12/25/12)
