"Only Tracks In The Snow"



It was Christmas Eve,

long ago deep in the forest near Leaning Hollow.
There, in a tiny bed, 6 spotted little bunnies were nestled together sleeping.
It was almost Christmas.
It would be a special time, as each of the bunnies would awake to find brand new carrots, all hanging on the branches of their tiny Christrmas tree.
Each of the carrots would have the bunnies names carved into it.
However, all the bunnies had been anticipating something very special that always happened on Christmas Eve.
For some reason that special something had not yet happened.
The bunnies waited and waited, hoping to get a glimpse of the magic, that certainly always
happened.

The bunnys became so sleepy . They were yawning and becoming restless.
The decision was made, ,,they could not wait any longer .
So off to bed all the little bunnies marched in single file, all making a huge hop, all at once into the fluffy bed.
Right into the bed, they hopped.
The night was very still.

So very still.
All that you could hear, was the sound of the snowflakes, gently drifting down through the sky and landing softly on the ground.
Sometimes you could hear the sound of one of the bunnies snoring.

zzzzzzzzzzz
The bunnies had not been asleep long, when sounds of giggling could be heard.
Could it be? Could it be the little elf that they were waiting for?
Could it be The Tweedles that always brought their Christmas Eve jammies?

All the bunnies jumped down from the bed- one by one, and looked out the window.
All they could see, was tracks in the snow.
Only tracks in the snow.
The bunnies all looked at each other, and then they looked at the tree.


Right there before their eyes and under the tree, was the Christmas Eve magic.
The bunnies were excited as they all snuggled into their new jammies.
Admiring, and twirling and dancing with glee.


Look at me- the bunnys all said to each other!
Once again they looked out the window- one last time, only to see the tracks in the snow.
The bunnies all hopped back into bed and curled up side by side.
Pretty little blankets were snugged up to their cold little noses.
As they started to drift off to sleep, the littlest bunny said "maybe next year we will see Tweedles, maybe next year.'
Nitey nite my friends


My friends.
I have decided that now is the time to share with you how I got my name.
This is the true story.
Long ago my mama was a little girl.
She had 5 sisters- (that made six little girls.)
Their home was in Georgia and their mama brought the story of Tweedles the little Christmas Eve Elf into their lives.
Each and every Christmas Eve the little Elf brought jammies.
To this very day, that little Elf still comes, and leaves jammies just like it did many years ago.
When I hopped into the lives of my moms, they decided to name me after that wonderful, happy, and mischievious little Elf Tweedles.

Nitey nite my friends
love
tweedles

What a great story Tweedles!

We just LOVED that you were named after the Christmas Eve Jammies Elf! Jammies are one of the best things out there because they're cozy and it means the hoomans are staying HOME!

We hope you had a nice Christmas!

Tweedles! Thank you so much for sharing how you got your name! You are a special little puggie, so the name of a very special Elf is just right for you! I'm so glad to have found your bloggie this year and to have an opportunity to read all your wonderful stories! It's appropriate, I think, that I got three pairs of jammies this Christmas! :)

Sandy said...

Well, I love that story...you have a wonderful story voice, too. That is a gift...being able to tell stories. Tweedles is such a sweet elf/pug name.

MelRoXx said...

Merry Christmas & a Happy New year! Loved this story! Look, the bunnies really want to see you, why don't you just let them?

You know, me & my brothers and sisters used to stay up all night to see Santa but he never let us see him. On Christmas Eve last year, I stayed up all night & with a sack of lemons from our garden to give to Santa in return for the presents, but he never came :( He hasn't come ever since, my stocking this year was empty:(

The OP Pack said...

Dear Tweedles - thanks for checking in on me! I sure game momma a scare! I am feeling much better, even going up & down the stairs on my own. Maybe the seizure re-set my brain? So far, so good. I am getting very spoiled, too. Momma will give everyone an update today, including how I got my name (thanks for the inspiration!).

Love,

What a nice story. Thanks for sharing how you got your name.

Thought of you today when I was looking at some yarn called Tweedle Dee...seriously, that's the name of it. lol

Busy trying to stay warm here, and hoping your New Year is a fabulous one.

Tweedles, it has been a long day for me. I was up early to watch the eclipse and then had to work. But reading this beautiful story of how your name came to be yours is very special. I think that names that are connected to a memory keep it alive so that it's never forgotten.

Studio at the Farm said...

All these years I have known you, and I did not know why you were called the Tweedles. Now I understand. What a wonderful and beautiful story!!! May you continue to tiptoe through the snow to the bunnies' home and leave them some spiffy new jammies!
Lots and lots of love
Kat XOXOXO
