Elfcapades 2014: Days 17-19

Our elf seems to be getting a little more mischievous as we get closer to Christmas…

Day 17 (Monday), the kids woke up to find ALL of their underwear thrown around the house.  It was in their bedrooms, in the hall, down the stairs…  There was underwear everywhere!

They decided to follow the mess to see where it led them; in fact, they went on an elf hunt.  There was a very clear path from each of their rooms, down the stairs, then it split in two: left to the Christmas tree and right towards the kitchen.  At the tree, they found Elfis had hung 5 or 6 pairs of underwear on the tree.  They couldn’t believe he did that!  (It seems Cooper forgot that Elfis has done this before.)  When they followed the trail back towards the kitchen, they saw it ended right in front of the freezer.  In fact, there was a pair of underwear in the water/ice compartment!  When they opened up the freezer, they found… guess who???  Yep, you got it.  Elfis was in the freezer, cozied up inside our portable freezer bag, wrapped in a nice, cuddly pair of Cooper’s underwear.  He is quite the silly little elf!

Day 18 (Tuesday), we woke up to find that Elfis had helped himself to the bag of gingerbread men & sugar cookie snowmen!  —  He was so BUSTED!!! —
The boys thought it was funny, but were very concerned that the cookies would be all gone and they wouldn’t get any more.


Day 19 (Wednesday), the boys discovered a bunch of wrapped presents under the tree.  They were excited and yelled to me, “Santa came and brought us presents!!!”  Boy, were they excited.  But then I had to be the downer and remind them that Santa isn’t coming until Christmas and that those presents were from us, that I’d just finally started wrapping them the night before.  Well, they weren’t too disappointed because they found Elfis right then and there.  He had gotten himself caught up (stuck?) peeking inside one of Natalie’s presents.  That sneaky elf!

    Nice work, as always! Glad to see Elfis had his coat on in the freezer.
