This is our elf, Carl. He came to our family two years ago at Christmas time. He has always been a pretty good elf. He minds his manners and cleans up his messes. He is very quiet at night when he comes back from the North Pole and checking in with Santa.
This year, I can tell Carl is feeling right at home. He has been testing the boundaries a little, but the kids are having so much fun with him that we will let him have a little fun!
Carl hid in the cabinet with the cups. The kids found him when Dad opened the cabinet to get their breakfast cups.
Carl drew with toothpaste on our mirror in the kids bathroom. I'm pretty sure Carl learned his lesson because toothpaste is not the easiest thing to clean off. Carl is under strict orders from Santa himself to clean up any messes that he makes!
Carl built a racetrack on our table and was busy racing with our nascars when the kids woke up.
Carl has seen how much trash we collect in our house, so he decided an extra pick-up day was in order.
Carl decided to read "The Gingerbread Man" to a group of babies he met in our playroom.
Stay tuned to see the future adventures of Carl.
