A New Visitor

We have a new visitor in the house- AN ELF!! Yes, Santa sent us an Elf. He watches us during the day and then flies back to the North Pole every night to report to Santa if the kids have been Naughty or Nice. Every morning he comes back and is in a new location in the house for the kids to find him. Santa made it clear that we can't touch the Elf or he'll loose his magic and won't be able to fly.(Santa was smart with that rule so the Elf doesn't get lost) Santa also instructed the Elf to not talk to us...but we can talk to him. We can tell him anything we want Santa to know. Needless to say the kids are really excited to have our new little visitor. Gavin really likes having him here, but he says he wishes Buddy the Elf (from the movie Elf) was sent here instead...
I told him maybe next year....
**Forgot to mention the kids named him Clark (think my kids have been watching too many Christmas movies already??)

GREAT idea. We seriously need something like that right now. We are testing the limits.

Got a Canon 50D...once I get photoshop & class I am thinking about expanding my hobby. So I will be looking for some fun cute little ones to practice on like yours. :)

Too cute! I read your comment on the Richey's blog about your sister starting the fostering process in January. Please let her know if she has any questions to feel free to ask! I love meeting and helping out new foster parents. I worked in the industry for 2 years, so have a little insight into that side as well!

I LOVE that idea. Maybe we need to get a Clark over here, too. That's so funny.
