Elfcapades Day #4

elfcapades

We learned today at Ollie loves bright lights and he doesn’t even mind sleeping in trees! He is on another adventure and my kids couldn’t be more thrilled to have this little special elf with us for the twelve days before Christmas. Here is the note that was left outside my children’s doors today…

 

 

IMG_1769Good morning Isaac and Kayla. Isaac, I have loved seeing the Christmas tree in your room Isaac. It is so bright and you have so many cool ornaments on it. Plus, it reminds me of my home at the North Pole because we have lots of Christmas trees there. So, last night I decided to sneak into your room and borrow your tree for the night, since you were already asleep. It was so nice to be able to sleep in something that reminded me of my home.

Ok before you come down and find me let’s continue on with the story of the birth of Jesus…

Mary and Joseph are in Bethlehem and it is very crowded. All the rooms were taken. At last they found a stable and Joseph made a bed out of hay for Mary. There was animals all around them. I bet it was stinky in there. What do you think? Mary and Joseph started preparing for baby Jesus to be born.

Elfcapades Day 4

Note from Ollie outside Isaac’s door…

Good morning Isaac. Did you have fun last night with your buddies? You did a really good job making a gingerbread house with your mommy and daddy. I really wanted to get inside the gingerbread house but I was too big.

I really miss the snow at the North Pole. But then I looked in your pantry and saw that you had some snow for me to play with. So I made some snow angels for you. I can’t wait for you to see them.

Ok before we do let’s continue on with the story. Of the birth of Jesus…

Mary and Joseph are in Bethlehem and it is very crowded. All the rooms were taken. At last they found a stable and Joseph made a bed out of hay for Mary. There was animals all around them. I bet it was stinky in there. What do you think Isaac? Mary and Joseph started preparing for baby Jesus to be born.

Look at what silly Ollie did today.  We had to dust him off and vacuum him up.  Isaac thought it was hilarious that Ollie thought that flour was snow.  He kept saying, “No silly Ollie, that is flour to make cookies with not snow.”IMG_0961
