Twinkle, Our Naughty Elf


He arrived on December 1st, looking innocent enough.


The morning of the 2nd, we found him hanging above the computer

He answered the kids' questions and used the webcam.


We found him hanging from the fan in a pair of boxers one morning...

He decorated with underpants...



He tried ALL of BubTar's video games one night...

He wrapped BubTar's sax and KayTar's oxygen tanks...
He had a tea party with the Lalaloopsies...

He took a bathroom break...and left something behind in the toilet. BubTar said, "I think it is edible!"

He played Pretty, Pretty Princess with some sock monkeys...


He made cookies...

KayTar did not like the mess...

He had a hot tub party...

He made an Elecare Jr. tree and decorated it...


He wrapped the table and strung up lights (and on a different night brough t the kids those trees)

He had a Silly String fight with Buzz...

Buzz lost...

He read A LOT of books one night...
He drove a shoe train around the living room...

He hid the tree and presents!

But we found them!

He read the Christmas story to some friends...

A lot of friends...



He crashed the wheelchair! And took a video of it!
video

Then he tried to look innocent!

He played with the scanner and replaced our pictures...
And on Christmas Eve, he left us poor Texans some snow!

He also stayed up late one night and watched TV and ate a BUNCH of snacks, took a nap under the tree in one of KayTar's baby cradles, and maybe something else I am forgetting. He sure was a BUSY elf! We thought he was gone and had left with Santa, but I guess they stopped back by on their way home to drop off one last surprise! Twinkle brought KayTar's new American Girl doll a sock monkey hat, brought BubTar a Gamestop gift card to get a game for his new XBOX, and brought them both some fun crazy straws and an indoor snowball fight...and he brought us a bottle of wine, perhaps to apologize for all of the messes he made! Oh, what a month it has been. I think I will need a whole year to recover!

I looked forward to your Twinkle pictures every day - what a whacky elf! I can only imagine the messes he made- thank goodness he brought a bottle of wine to make up for it. Happy New Year!!!

Twinkle was one INCREDIBLY busy elf this year! I remember not long ago when you mentioned to me how thankful you were that you didn't have an elf wreaking havoc around your house, but now look how much fun it is to have a Twinkle around. ;)

Good thing you now have 11 months to recover!
