Elfcapades 2012: Day 14
Saturday morning and you’d think we could sleep in. But nooooooo… Two noisy little boys were up early and were ready to play. As I stumbled downstairs to join the rest of the family, I walked into the kitchen to see this:
It seems Elfis was a very busy little Elf last night. He ran a gigantic paperchain across the kitchen. It goes across four separate times! Natalie counted the links in the chain and came up with 209! Wow. That’s a LOT! We found him hanging out at the very end of the chain (above the refrigerator).
In addition, there was a note and a smaller paper chain on the table. This chain has numbers on all the links, from one to twenty-five.
Elfis made a sort of Advent Calendar paper chain, for the kids to count down the days left until Christmas. We hung it up and let Cooper cut off the number 25. So that means 24 days left until Christmas. Wow, that is coming so fast!
Through the rest of the day, we managed to get the outside lights finished (thanks, Jeff!), got our tree up but not yet decorated (tomorrow, I swear!), and a few other things up around the house (stockings hung, etc). And it seems we have a second Elf in training today, too:
Short of a natural disaster, we’ll get our tree decorated tomorrow!
