August 24th – Lime Cookies for Jack Frost

Jack was taken to the hospital after collapsing at the manufacturing facility.  He was exhausted and his doctor kept him in the hospital overnight to make sure he was really okay.

The next morning Santa and Jessie went to visit.  They delivered a batch of Molly’s Lime Cookies and were pleased to see that Jack was up and dancing to the music on the radio.

Lime Cookies are Jack’s favorite and he was pleased to get the recipe with his treat. He immediately stopped his jig and dug into the cookies.

The recipe is below.

3/4 cup melted butter

August 21st – Jack Frost uses his magic

They stood in front of the building and looked at the crack running from the top of the wall to the floor.  It had expanded by about a foot and the workers inside could be easily be seen at their workstations.

Jack curiously examined the ice in the wall and furrowed his brow.  “Shouldn’t be too much of a problem.  Let’s see where’s my book?” Jack looked at Klaus and Flora and motioned the pair towards him.

Klaus hurried forward and held out the boo and Jack eagerly grabbed it.  He caressed the soft cover and held it to his chest.  Jack  mumbled a few words and opened the book to the very back page.  He licked his finger and began thumbing through the lines words.  Near the bottom of the page his face brightened.scaredsanta

“Here it is Santa,  just give me a moment.”  Jack closed his eyes as he swayed back and forth.  He held his hands up to the opening and a strong ray of blue magic poured forth from his fingers.  The ray moved from the bottom of the building up to the very top.  As it moved it filled the space with frozen water in a pure white line.  When the ray reached the sky it dimmed and went out.”

Santa sighed in relief and touched the wall where it had been mended. It was solid as it was when he first became Santa Claus.  He knocked on the wall and was satisfied to hear a dull thud.   Santa called to his friend.  “Jack, you’ve done it.  You’ve saved Christmas. ”  He turned around to smile and shake Jack’s hand.  Santa’s face fell and he sprinted forward.  “Jack!”

Jack Frost lay crumpled in a pile snow.

August 20th – Santa visits Jack Frost

Santa sneaked around the corner tightly gripping Jessie’s lead.  Nurse Withers did not like dogs roaming around the hospital and Santa knew if she saw Jessie that they would be thrown out of the building. He would have come to see Jack alone but Jack always smiled when he saw Jessie.

Santa peeked around the corner.  When the path was clear he quickly led the dog down the hall to Jack’s room.  The pair reached Jack’s room and Santa pushed the door open.  He flicked on the light and closed the door behind them.  Santa moved to the bed and gently shook the sleeping man.

Jack grunted and then groaned before opening his eyes.  He peered out into the gloom of the room.  When his eyes focused he saw Santa and Jessie.  A broad grin passed across his face.  “Well, hello.  I was wondering when you were going to visit.”

Jack sat up in bed and patted the covers beside him.  Jessie moved forward and put her chin by his hand so that he could pat her head.  She licked Jack’s outstretched hand and Jack sighed contentedly. Continue reading August 20th – Santa visits Jack Frost
