I don't mean physically sick, I mean mentally! He found a blog that we've both been following for a few months now. It's called Stuff Christians Like. Jon, the blogger, uses it to mention funny quirks and silly things we Christians do...like side hugs and assigned pews, etc. He cracks us up! He also can throw in some good theology. I just has to link to his recent post about Elf on a Shelf. Reason being is that my sister and her family have something similar, but it's different in that it relates the story of Christ. Elf on the Shelf is just a Santa spy from my understanding.
Anyway, this past weekend, my niece and nephew brought their elves to my parents house. They told the kids about them and they were a little freaked out that stuffed animals came alive at night. So much so that instead of sleeping with them in the spare room, all four kids wanted to sleep in the same room with us. It was kind of funny.
So, without further ado, if you have a warped mind like Mark and I, click on over and read Leg Dropping Elves (or the real meaning of Christmas). My favorite line is: "Because Jesus is funky and loves a good beat..."
