our Elf this year...


Last year, as some of you know, I was totally into our Elf. Both kids believed, and somehow I found the time to come up with these creative antics day after day. This year? I sort of hoped no one would notice if he didn't return. Dream on. December 1st rolled around and my kids eagerly anticipated his first trick. They excitedly recalled the snowball fight. What was I thinking last year?!?! 


I couldn't find the darn Elf, and honestly, he was stressing me out. And so I went to bed December 1st, and made mention to my husband, that "if he could find the Elf and do something with it, great". Guess what? I woke up to a complete disaster the next morning. Every coat and piece of outerwear was strewn about the condo we're temporarily living in. Nice.


A day or two passes, and the Elf gets into the cookies the kids had begged for at the market. Ate the  whole bag. And I didn't have to lift a finger....


I did partake in one antic to bring a little holiday flair to the condo....





And last night, clearly he had too much champagne... but the kids were thrilled b/c he's made it perfectly acceptable to dig into the gingerbread houses. So anyway, that's the scoop for those who have emailed me asking what he's been up to. He's not nearly as prolific-- or messy-- as last year, but he's happy to be back and surprises us when he does get around to moving...
