I stopped by my holiday family's home to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving and to remind them that I will be coming very soon to visit. But when I got there they weren't home! Just the cat, Melanie, was there. So I decided to wait until they got home, but, they didn't arrive. I waited all night and they still didn't come home! I headed back to the Pole to see if I could get some help from the Locator Elves. (these are the elves that keep track of all the children in the world in case they go on vacation or visit family somewhere else or even move.) The locator elves informed me that my holiday family had gone to visit family for Thanksgiving! They were in Connecticut! No wonder they never showed up! I still wanted to surprise them though and bring a little holiday cheer. So, I headed back to their house and made quick work of finding the Christmas tree and setting it up. Since they didn't like the way I decorated it last year, I decided to leave it plain and let them have fun decorating. I hope they like it. I plan to stick around here long enough to see them return and then I'll head back to the Pole until the last recruit has finished training and it's time for me to come back for my seasonal visit in December!
