Christmas Elves

They're everywhere and they're watching us.

The come in the night to observe our daily actions. New ones arriving each evening to be found in the morning. They all have that same creepy look, and they're tricky too. Some hide in the bathroom, others come wrapped around ornaments and hide in the tree, while others hold greenery and sneak in among the evergreen wreaths. Every night for 24 days. Then suddenly, on Christmas Eve they're gone, presumably to tattle on us for our indiscretions.


Thank goodness no one tattles at

Haha, very cute! Maybe telling that to my youngest would help her behaviour improve just a little!! We've never had "terrible two's", but we are definitely experiencing the "frustrating four's!!"

Scary Mommy said...

Love the snowflake!! We may have to try this!

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

How cool! I have never heard of that before! And the snowflake is so awesome!

Cecily R said...

Was that supposed to make me laugh? Because it totally did! I believed for years that the elves hid under the fridge. Knowing the icks that are REALLY under my fridge right now, I don't think that anymore. But thanks to YOU I'll be looking everywhere now!!! :)

I need to try you tutorial. I'm pretty craft dumb though, do I dare?

Oh, and thanks for not giving up on me over the last few weeks. It means a lot to me.

Why is he smiling like that? What does he know?
