North Pole Dinner

Do you have a special Elf at your house?
We do, his name is Morty.
He has been our special visitor for 3 years now.
The kids love finding him each morning!
This year, I decided we needed to have a special North Pole Dinner to welcome Morty to our house.
It worked, and he came delivering gifts!
Gotta love that!
I made a yummy stew for dinner with garlic bread and Hot chocolate.
I found the fun table clothe at Wal-Mart for $5, and borrowed some fun Christmas dishes from my mom-in-law.
Morty brought the special extras; glaciers to put in our hot chocolate, North Pole Snow Balls, and Reindeer kisses.
Plus the nice elf brought new jammies for the kiddos and a new Christmas CD for the big kids.  Can't leave them out!
The best part is listening to the kids tell everyone that Morty came.  He gets all the credit; for everything.  Even the stew, which has been cooking all day on my counter?  Funny how that happens!
I wouldn't trade it though.  The elf is a great tradition!  (No, our elf isn't the normal Elf on the Shelf.  He is a special one sent just to us.  Any elf is great to have!)
