The tradition continues
When our girls grew up, married and their families grew, CASHEW, with his irrepressible desire to delight, sent his Elf cousins to their homes as well. Cashew and his relatives come from a well bred line of kindly elves and though cheeky and ornery at times, they are always fun and lighthearted in their appearances.
Little ones are continually amused when they unexpectedly spot their elf in some peculiar location. Though they won’t admit it, even the bigger KIDS scan each room curious to where the elves might be currently busing themselves.
Meet the Elf clan
Cashew still arrives each December to captivate the grandchildren but just like us, the years have accumulated for him. His initial appearance was in the early 80’s and through the years of annual visits and vacationing in storage, I mean the North Pole, Cashew has faded and become less frolicking than in his younger days.
Last Christmas, Cashew came with a little white-colored sprite named Coconut to apprentice for the season and then assume the duties of senior elf. His white color makes it easier to blend in making it a little more difficult to spot him, especially for the older kiddos.
