Elfcapades 2012: Day 12

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Well, not totally.  But, Elfis is definitely in the Christmas spirit.  Today we found him sitting amongst his lovely lights from yesterday.  He had gathered up all the Christmas books he could find in the house and was reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  He had also found a picture of Natalie and Cooper with Santa last year and had it next to him.  Maybe he was lonely and wanted their company (in spirit?), maybe he misses Santa, or maybe it was just one more Christmasy item he found that he wanted out?

Here’s Cooper showing me that he found Elfis & telling me what his Elf was up to:

Closer pictures of Elfis:

The book up on the right was tied with a red ribbon and had a note:

A new book???  And not just any new book, a new CHRISTMAS book.  For Cooper.  From Elfis.  How fun!  Here’s Cooper showing off his new book:

What a nice Elf, bringing little presents and treats to us every once in a while.  I guess he’s not so bad, that Elfis.  If he keeps making the kids happy (and not making my house messy!), then I guess he can stay.  For a little while at least.  🙂

      I’m sure Elfis will help in some way to set up our tree and other holiday decorations, since he’s already putting on the pressure for us to get it done.
      We’re not coming to the Cox outing though this year, so Elfis should be staying home this weekend (except for his nightly visits to the North Pole, of course). Have fun! We’ll see you in a couple weeks for Christmas. – I better warn Elfis that he needs to be on his best behavior with a house full of people that day! 🙂

    Oh that Elfis! How nice of him to bring a book to Cooper. I guess he must think Bennett is too young for books. I do think he really has the Christmas spirit and that he is trying to be good so you will let him stay around til Christmas. He must be like Great Grammie cause he likes the picture of Natalie and Cooper with Santa and he is waiting for a new photo this year just like Great Grammie!!!! Love you Martinsons. The FAV GGma
