Laundry Day

It's kind of sweet that our Elf on the Shelf decided to do the princess dolls' laundry today. Nice except that they are using Miracle Bubbles in the washing machine… reminds me of the Brady Bunch episode with the washing machine, LOL.

Bad little lumberjack elves

I think Chintz and Jewel have recovered from the shunned weekend. They're back to their usual no good. Take a look at how we found them this morning, just in the nick of time I might add... Chintz found Daddy's saw and is trying to cut down our juniper tree -- I...

They’re back…

They’re back…

The elves are back! I know this because before dawn I had a 5 year old swoop in and grab my hand, dragging me up the stairs to her room and pointing at the ceiling. Oh, and the donuts and milk mess they left with red and green glitter sprinkled on top was a dead...
