You see, in early November, Kyle helped Sophie and Xander write a letter to Santa, asking if he'd "please, please, please, with a cherry on top" send one of his best elves to visit and help our family get ready for the Holiday season. We sent our letter off with the help from the Polar Express, and honestly, I forgot all about it. (Mommy FAIL!)
The day after Thanksgiving, our whole family awoke to quite a shock....First we found a little note from Ella, one of Santa's most beautiful and playful elves. She let us know that she would be hiding here and there and everywhere, and part of the fun of Christmas would be seeing where she'd turn up next!
So we began hunting for Ella. After all, we had never met a real live elf before, and we were all excited to make her acquaintance. We looked high and low, and finally found Ella peeking out from inside my Winnie the Pooh cookie jar!
They say elves only come out to create mischief at night. However, I don't think Ella got that memo! She turns up both during the day and at night...We never know what she's been up to or where we might find her next!
Here are just a few of Ella's recent antics. I guess when request a mischievous elf to pay a visit, sometimes you get exactly what you asked for!
Here she is nestled among one of my silk flower arrangements, piggy-backing on the shoulders of one of our Christmas angels!
It's not too early to have your little ones write to Santa asking for some Elf Magic. I hear he has elves standing by with all different hair and skin tones, boys and girls, ready to come to homes and spread some Holiday cheer! This is a fun-filled Holiday tradition that has been around for decades. The best part? Anyone can participate!
Look for more posts about Ella soon! I know she's going to keep us on our toes!
