Having an Elf back in our house is wonderful. Every morning, Max and Evan race downstairs to be the first to spot him. "Oh, Bear TIIIICKKKKLIIIIIISH!" Max calls, "Where AAAAARRRRRREE you?!" Max is an especially good Elf Spotter. We've been using him to our advantage, "Remember...Bear Ticklish is ALWAYS watching!" But we're trying to keep it more positive than negative (for instance, I'll say "I'm sure Santa will be so happy to hear that you chose to share with your brother," a second before the "choice" to share had even been made). Although, I'm pretty sure we've threatened that Santa is Not Happy to hear about little boys who Do Not Stay In Their Beds at least a time or two.
Our Elf is slowly getting reacquainted with our house and toys....I have a feeling he's going to be getting into more and more mischief as the countdown to Santa continues, but right now, he's just getting comfortable.
Keep sending your own Elfing ideas and suggestions! We're keeping a list. (And checking it twice! HA!) (Sorry. Couldn't help it.)
