The Elves, Asteroid & Pixie have arrived for the third year. They always come the day after Thanksgiving in our house! The kids are having a lot of laughs about them. When they come down in the am to have breakfast, they look to see what they’ve done and make comments – which coincidentally the elves tend to do the next day.
Day 1 – Skipping Rope Competition
First you have to understand how much Maebh loves to skip – she does this all the time.
Day 2 – They ate their favorite numbers from the Advent Calendars & finished my chocolates!
Day 3 – Frozen Memory
(Maebh and I played it the night before and of course she won. I don’t try to let her win, she is just too good and wins often!)
|Excuse the messy kitchen, waiting on the dishwasher to finish 🙂|
Day 4 – Hide and Seek inside our the Nesting Dolls
Soren piced the back one & Maebh the colorful one and Soren got it correct.
Day 5 – Toilet Paper Roll Race
When Maebh woke up today she said, I knew they were going to roll down the steps with toilet paper – I told Papa about it yesterday! I knew it!!”
Day 6 – Christmas Cards
The kids brought home their individual drawn Christmas cards yesterday and Maebh did some additional sketches, so they acknowledged their good jobs.
Day 7 – Orange Juice?
Now that the kids have put up the tree, the elves found their stockings & took a rest.
Day 9 – Chocolate
The kids still have two pails of Halloween candy left over and as the school is looking for donations, the elves suggested they donate them. Kids disapprove!
Day 10 – Decorative Plates
Last year we made Santa & Rudolf plates and this year the elves want one for them.
Day 11 –
Clearly need to get back and find photos of what they did for the rest of the days! Slacker!!
