We have an elf visiting us again this year. But the elves got all techno savvy in November & he spent the week before he arrived chatting with the boys on Google Talk.
He arrived bearing the Lego Advent calendar & some holiday reading material
We’re not sure if he was playing with the dinos or got attacked by them.
He saw Mayhem turn the fan on one day & decided to take a ride
No one would read to him so he read to himself.
Hanging out with his friends in the boys’ room
Going through their football cards
Hiding in Havoc’s backpack
Chatting with Santa about the boys on Google Talk
That last one took more time & effort to set up than all the others combined. I had to create Santa an email addy
In the coming days he is going to wrap the tree in toilet paper, show up with cinnamon rolls for breakfast, the Clones will tie him to a post & he will play a board game with the Legos.
And then I am out of ideas so in between those things he will just be found sitting various places.
I don’t know how people do elaborate creative things, like changing all the photo displays to his picture, with their elf every night. Mostly I just move him around and give him a random prop to hold and that taxes me.
