Carl has missed being able to sled with his friends. Since it is cold here, but we don't have any snow, Carl set to work to make an indoor sledding experience. Lucky for him we always have plenty of cardboard in our recycling bin. After all the fun of sledding, Carl actually went missing for most of the day. Most houses have a rule about not touching their elf, but in our house Carl is so well loved that we don't have this rule. Carl only visits us for a short time each year and the kids just adore him, so we allow them to touch him. We ended up finding him last night hidden underneath the bedskirt of our bed!
