Ethan the Elf 2012

I wanted to dedicate a post to our Christmas guest.  His name is Ethan and the girls could not get enough of him!  He even followed us to Houston and stowed away in my computer bag to get home!  He got into alot of trouble, but was a quiet house guest :)  My only complaint about him is that I'm pretty sure he is the reason I didn't get to sleep past 6:30 the entire month of December!!  Every morning, the girls would stumble out of their room and ask where Ethan was :)  Wesleigh is still asking about him and talking about how much she misses him.

Here are a couple of pics I couldn't fit in the collage:

I just love this of Wesleigh :)  Ethan ended up in the stroller by accident...he forgot to move during the night!  It ended up being one of the best ones though!  The girls are so scared of touching him that they just rolled him around in the stroller all day!!Dec 2012-1280

 And my favorite of the year...painting the girls' noses like Rudolph! Dec 2012-2334

Gracie thought it was great and laughed hysterically. Wesleigh, on the other hand, was not so amused! She was not very happy with Ethan! Dec 2012-2335

She finally gave me half a smile :) Dec 2012-2336

I love Rudolph noses!!! hahaha! Madeline would not have been amused either!! Last year Madeline was a little freaked out that he moved at night, one night after a really bad Madeline day Hank and I were tempted to put him on her bedside table staring at her....made us laugh so hard!!! Of course we did not do it since she would not have slept again ever but it was a great laugh not even doing it!

Elvin is our Elf's name and OH BOY...does Bre get excited to see him!! I so wish I would have taken a video of her "having a conversation" with Elvin. It was TOO PRECIOUS!!! I had to laugh bc she told I know you don't talk, but I need you to REPEAT what I told you to tell Santa!!! That girl is serious about her CHRISTMAS LIST!!!I must say "she never touched him" though. Albeit...our schnauzer thought it looked quite appetizing. She would BARK HER HEAD OFF whenever she spotted it!!! Crazy dog!!!

PS LOVE the LOOK on Wesleigh's face! PRICELESS!!! Uhhh yes....Bre would have thought it was HILARIOUS...just like Gracie!!

Whew, our elf was a dud for a few nights....kind of like our tooth fairy is, sometimes!! Our elf TP'd our tree before we had it decorated! I read on FB that one mom had to throw her elf and the floor as she was "checking to see where he had moved" and said "that elf just flew right into me!!" Too funny! Our elf came December 1...I am sure glad we didn't have an "over-ambitious" elf that arrived before Thanksgiving!
