One night/morning at about 3 a.m. Maggie woke up for some reason, and when she noticed that an elf was in a new spot, her eyes got wide and she said "look Mommy, the elf moved, they really ARE watching us."
Another time, I was yelling at her from another room to go wash her hands after going to the bathroom. She said she did. I said, 'No you didn't Maggie, I KNOW you didn't wash them." To which she replied...."how do you know, are you part elf too?" HA! It was awesome.
Anywho, let me introduce you to 4 of our elf army.....
In the back is Mr. Peepers, he bothers Maggie because he's "green".
From L to R in front is Sport, Clarence and Happy. Maggie named them all, and who are we to argue with that. Sport and Happy were quite clever elves and could often be found hanging from cieling fans, snowflakes in the cieling, curtains or elsewhere. Definitely more lithe and nimble than Clarence, who was a big clunky, and Mr. Peepers who has a balance problem.
All in all, I'm a big fan of this whole Elf army and look forward to using their services again next year. Actually, we've decided that maybe once a month or so one will just appear in the house, to let the kids know that Santa is ALWAYS watching. hehehehehe
