December 1 - Ralphie


This is probably the last year that I’ll get away with staging my elf photos.  We started this tradition well after our kids had grown.  Actually, I think they were both away at college when Ralphie first came to visit.  (Steel named him after the main character in our favorite Christmas movie “A Christmas Story.”)

 Every year I hear parents (of small children) lament the fact that they forgot about the “damn elf” and I just laugh.  I share a photo every day, but I’ll be honest and say that I usually stage several at a time.   Jameson won’t pay much attention this year. but I’m thinking that next year will be a different story.  Here’s to one more year of the simple version of this Christmas tradition.
