Ever feel like someone’s watching you while you’re sleeping? Yeaaahhhhh… I woke up in the middle of the night to see this on top of my reloved dresser.

bad elves

Yes, in retrospect, I probably should have rescued poor bear, but in my defense, I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on.

When daylight came, it became more clear. At least I think.

The elves, Chintz and Jewel, had lassoed Valentine bear with the Christmas lights, and Jewel was shoving a star onto the top of his head. I thought it to be a passive-agressive message aimed at me that it’s time to get to decorating around Chez Perot, the elves being so desperate they had to take a bear hostage to get their point across.

However, the Princess Cupcake had a different interpretation.

PC: Mommy, what are the elves doing?

Me: Uh… what do you think they’re doing?

PC: I think they’re doing a  magic trick.

So there you have it. Since elves won’t speak to us directly, we’ll never know. But just in case, I think we’ll unbox some ornaments stat before they get a hold of one of the pugs.
