Wow I guess the Elders still do exisist ! I wasn't sure since they have only stopped by once in the last almost four yrs.
Here is what has them all in a tissy.......
I guess the lighted deer and lights on the railing screams CHRISTMAS .....I was going for Cheerful winter ,guess I overshot.
Here is how the conversation went :
Two Elders :all big smiles and friendly " HI We were just stopping by and wondering if you were aware of the meeting time changes ??? "(goes on to elaborate the BIG changes . Could we come in and talk for a moment ?"
Me: "Yes actually we are aware of the new changes ,but as you can see I am really sick today (I have a bad cold and sore throat )And I don't want you to catch anything ...." ( keeping them on the porch out of sight of my 3 minature trees inside the living room :)
Elder : "Well the thing is we were just wondering because of your decorations outside ....."
I interrupt and say "Yes isn't it pretty makes gloomy winter so much more appealing ! " excitement in my voice ..
Elder: " well yes I know you have always liked to decorate ,but what we want to know is are you now celebrating Christmas ? "
Me: " Well I'm sorry like I said I'm sick and need to go in now ,bye ."
Elder: " Can we come by another time then ?"
Me: "Sure ,another time,"
