Hey- Merry Christmas everyone! Here are the fun antics of our little Elf that I promised you. It was nothing exciting- but the kid loved it- so she served her purpose!
This was Day 1- We came home from Thanksgiving and found a wrapped gift on the porch- To: the Kid From: the North Pole
We all read the story together. The kid got to hug her and play with her. Then we put her up on the shelf and gave her a name and let the magic take over. Her name is Snowflake Elfin (she signed all her stuff S.E.)
Day 2 she had written on the mirror "Thank you for my name, I love it!"
Day 3 she delivered to the kid the Elf on the Shelf movie- of course she can't do it in a normal way- she had to show off her upside down skills.
Even before the kid saw the movie, she wanted to thank her Elf and make her cookies (seriously- totally her idea). They are teeny tiny cookies about the size of a quarter with a tiny shot glass of milk. So freaking cute!
Day 4 So S.E. thanked the kid with a fun little message- plus, it had snowed that day and she wanted to play in "snow" too!
Day 5 She got pretty messy playing in the snow, so she had to take a bath. She even looped the kitchen hose around the cupboard so she could shower. Did you notice her little laundry hanging up on the line?
She just wanted to show off her mad skills.
Day 11 She found a few stray ornaments and tried to help us out with some tree decorating. Really, I think she just wanted to go for a ride on the peacock in the tree.
Day 15 She built a little house out of the big legos and camped out on the hearth. There was a little oopsy that night- the Kid was rolling around and rough housing. She accidentally kicked the elf. She was SO upset that she was going to lose her magic. She wrote a letter to S.E. and explained it was an accident- which it absolutely was.
Day 22 Just hanging out for a leisurely swing.
