What Santa's helpers have been up to





Okay Arden is really getting into this. The boys have told her that during the day she needs to be quiet because the "elves" are sleeping. So all day she walks around and says SHHHH your gonna wake up the elves. Then Monday morning when we woke up Santa's Helpers built a little fort with our sofa cushions and played mini golf with our candles and Christmas Balls. Arden came down stairs and immediately looked at me and said "Mom look what they did, they are BAD!" But once she saw they had a little candy cane treat for her all was good. Then yesterday when she went up to her room for her nap she stopped half way up the stairs and yelled " Don't make a mess Elves". Then this morning when she hit the floor the first words out her mouth were " lets go see if the elves made a mess and gave me candy" I was a little worried that this might be a little over her head but boy was I wrong. She even knows that these little helpers leave her candy and she is loving it. Hee Hee.. This morning those little stinkers decided to raid the pantry and pulled out cereal and goldfish and even knocked over the salt shaker. What a mess they made and Arden was very happy to see the M&Ms. David was a little sceptical about how this would work and worried it would get a little corny but he is so digging it now. At night we begin making our plan for the night. This is truly priceless to see the kids excited each morning. I guess we will have to wait and see what is to come from these little stinkers?????

This looks so fun! I'm thinking that the elves may make an appearance at our house too ~ but maybe we'll wait until next year when Caleb has some English vocabulary under his belt. Until then I'll be watching to see what they are up to at your house so I'll "know what to expect" next December!
