Elf Invasion!

That's right folks, there's new sheriffs in town this season and they come in the form of Elves...Santa's Elves! Here to keep an eye on the children and report back to Santa on all the naughty and nice behavior. So...as the old song goes:

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I'm telling you why...

Santa Claus sent his Elves to town!

This is where we'll keep Santa posted on how our family is behaving, as per his instructions. He's very 21st century, our Santa!

Elf Report

Hi Santa...it's me Marvin.

Just wanted to check in with you to let you know how things are going here. First of all...it's actually snowing here! We just cannot believe it! Who knew it snowed in these parts?! Wow!

Kids Update: We're pretty impressed. They have been playing nicer with each other lately. They even had a tea party together. They still have their moments though. The eldest just does not seem to like her little sister much sometimes. We're not sure why since she's such a sweet little girl. But...Mom and Dad are working hard to help them learn to share and play nice.

Us Update: Well, shucks Santa...you know how it is! First the bear was hurt so we had to bandage his arm, then we noticed that the bunny had a bump on his head so we got a bandage for that and then next thing you know, we're all bandaged up! We were just trying to help! We got chastized by the oldest for getting into the first aid supplies. *blush* We feel really bad about it! We'll think of something to make it up to them and apologize, we promise!

I better go. It's about time for our Cousin Conference! Talk to you soon!

Things are good!

Hi Santa,

Hope things are going well with the toy building and Christmas Eve preparations. Things here are good. We have decided (after much discussion) to keep the girls on the nice list for now. We've kept pretty quiet here at the house...really just observing what's going on. We did enjoy a movie the other night with some of the stuffed animals. Percy made a mess of the popcorn and fell asleep before he could clean it up. The poor family had to pick up after him...I was so embarrassed!!

We did find some small ornaments (we weren't snooping, we promise) so we left those out for the girls to decorate with. Once again, Percy thought he should decorate the tree and he ended up getting stuck! Seriously, we're afraid that he'll end up in the oven or the freezer one of these days and not be able to get himself out! He's lucky he's family! o<:o)

All is well and we're having a wonderful time down here. The girls are getting so big and a bit forgetful, I must say. They haven't fed us in like 3 days! Lucky for us, Mom remembers and gives us a bite to eat before she heads for bed...she definitely goes on the nice list this year!

Love, Mabel

We're Here!

Hi Santa!

Sorry it's taken us so long to report back to you (hope you weren't worried!) We made it here safe and sound. The trip was good, the weather was nice and everything went smoothly. We weren't outside for very long before they found us and brought us in. You'll never believe how much the children have grown! We thought we were in the wrong house at first! :o)

So far, we're afraid to say that the girls may need to be put on the naughty list. We'll give them until this weekend and then we'll let you know for sure. They don't listen very well and have been all up in the tree, taking off the ornaments and then not listening when their Mommy & Daddy tell them to leave it alone. We're hoping it's just because their Grandpa is visiting but we will see.

We'll send you a report again soon!

Love,

Penny
