Pre-Christmas Fun

Holy Cow, it's just non-stop!! 

Jer and his Gingerbread Man

Christmas Tree Celebratory Freeze Dance

Shortly after the Christmas tree makes it's appearance, Fred the Elf comes on the scene. Fred is Santa's little helper. It is his job to report back to Santa every night on the behavior of his family, so that Santa can decide if you get the new ninjago that you have been dreaming about, or perhaps a lump of coal….Every night Fred goes back to the North Pole to hang with Rudolf and Santa, and then reappears somewhere else in the house. Yep, first order of the morning is to track down Fred. It is also OK to lay out you wishes for your gift from Santa, but you can't touch Fred, or the magic disappears….SO! ...You better watch out, you better not cry. You better not pout, I'm telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town!

Wow, whoever made this up was a genius!!
