Day 19 Booming Birthday

“It worked! Their mom was so mad. There is NO WAY Joe still believes that she is doing all this crazy stuff!” Pixie pirouetted and Figgy frolicked. 

Today’s when Joe begins his ninth year
Fa la la la la, la la la la
With this game we’ll bring him good cheer
Fa la la la la, la la la la
With candy under the last cu-up
Fa la la, la la la, la, la, la
Jake and Joe will eat it u-up
Fa la la la la, la, la, la, la

“Great job guys!” Nim and Lil flew through the window and gave Pixie and Figgy big hugs. 


“What are you guys doing here?” Pixie asked, smiling even more brightly.

“We wouldn’t miss Joe’s birthday,” said Nim.

“He’s going to be so excited to see you tomorrow.” Figgy clapped his hands and bounced on his toes. 

Nim and Lil smiled and looked around at the surprise Figgy and Pixie had set up for Joe. 

Dixie cups littered the floor and the table was covered with a bright Christmas tablecloth and every breakfast treat imaginable. 

“No chocolate lake this year?” asked Lil.

“No snowman donuts?” said Nim.

“We wanted to do something different.” Pixie pointed to the tree. 

Nim and Lil stared, open-mouthed at the Christmas tree. It was decked out with colorful balloons and streamers.


“Wow,” Nim said in awe. “You really stepped it up.”

Pixie blushed. “That’s not all.” 

Figgy beamed and pointed to the living room with a flourish. “We set up a game too.”

“Dixie cup dash,” said Pixie. “The boys will race to find the hidden treats and treasures.” 

“We never would have thought to do this,” said Lil. “With this surprise, you two are sure to win the Top Shelf Elf trophy again this year.”

Pink and green blurred together as the two elves twirled and whirled with excitement.
