'Lil mischief, family fun, and "Parties We Have Held"
Right. After. Thanksgiving.Who could wait?
The first morning our elves Jack and Julia brought some cute new placemats. Day 2 saw new sparkly, glitter filled cups. The kids were worried the elves’ bums were getting wet. Since the rule is “no touching the elves” we had to wait a whole day to see how the cups worked.
Looks like someone wants to watch The Grinch tonight.
Chocolate on their faces… and sprinkles…. hmm…
Using a magnifying glass to see if they were REAL donuts
Wiping little faces
A little help decorating the tree
Someone’s ready to make French Cookies!
One morning the elves hid in the underwear drawers. Perhaps checking to see if clean undies were donned each morning.
The kids did not find the elves til bath time at night. Case closed.
Ahhh. Calgon, take me away!
Tic Tac Toe. Julia won
At the drive-in
One morning the kids noticed that the small door way above the pantry was decorated.
Isabella wrote a note asking if people could go inside.
Jack wrote, “No, but you can peek. White door only.
Whoa. An elf portal.
They bowl. Who knew?
Luckily they leave their games out for us to enjoy the next day.
Julia in the reindeer food.
They musta peeked in the advent calendar, which read “decorate cookies today!”
a message… “Ten More Days”
… which was amended by Isabella the next day
Which kid will be the first to unwrap one of these “presents?
3 more days!
Playing Go Fish
Connect 4 with the helicopter guy
They brought new Christmas jammies!
New elves appeared the last few days. Isabella gave them each a chocolate Santa while whispering, “Can you stay on Christmas morning?”
Asking Jack and Julia to stay one more day
They did stay one last day to watch us open presents on Christmas morning.
Aloha til next year!
