We had a ton of fun this year with our elf Bernard!
One morning he got himself a bowl of Cheerios.
One morning he toilet papered Cade's bedroom tree.
One morning he left us some ingredients and a note....
The kids did exactly what the note said. They planted the Kisses in the sugar and sprinkled the magic sprinkles over the top.
And the next morning they had grown candy canes!!!
We went to the cabin for 4 days and when we came home we found Bernard playing a game of cards with the Barbies. Apparently he got bored while we were away.
One morning he got into our chocolates.
He sat by our nativity set.
He didn't move from our nativity set for two days. Molly admitted that she had touched him. I sent an email to Santa and asked him what to do. The next day in the mail, a letter arrived for Molly. It told her that elf magic was very special and that she was not to touch him! He sent us some magic elf dust. (which was some silver glitter in a small baggie - like the ones extra buttons come in when you buy a new shirt.)
She sprinkled it over Bernard and he was good as new!
He cut us out some amazing snowflakes! Our favorite one was the "ho ho ho" one and the one with the cool stars in it.
He left us some "elf" kisses.
One morning we found him in Cade's closet on the bookshelf reading.
And the funniest one of all.....
The cousins were sleeping over and he drew musthaches all over each one of them while they slept. He drew big eyebrows on Alivia, he drew big eyebrows and a gotee on Averi and a mustache and devil horns on Sidney. They all looked super funny!
