Edward The Elf Part 2

Ah, December shot past so quickly!  Far too quickly.  I’m missing my nightly giggle of plotting what to do with Edward the Elf, the sort-of elf on the shelf idea I tweaked to suit my family, inspired by a lovely, funny lady called Naomi.  The minxes really miss him too and now want to post little gifts to him c/o Santa so that he never forgets them.

I showed you some of the (mostly) innocent fun he had in the first half of December in an earlier post.  To complete the story, here are the final 12 days of his stay.  On Christmas Eve, Santa took him home again to the North Pole – well, I’m not having 3 little girls excitedly racing down stairs every morning, wishing and hoping that he’d gotten up to more mischief!  Santa left them a note thanking them for teaching him so well, and Edward left us all a chocolate orange each, and a few words at the bottom of the note.  It looked suspiciously like my left-handed writing.  Allegedly…

Actually, I miss the wee man myself.  Even though he’s now sleeping the whole experience off at the bottom of my underwear drawer until next year.  Or maybe the year after…

  1. Thank you for sharing Edward’s Escapades with us…I will keep my eyes open next christmas as your documentary has proved to me that “Elves are amongst us”. I trust Barbie is not too broken hearted that he has gone (after all she is a good time girl and is bound to find something to keep her occupied (or someone))…hopefully Edward is not too much of a bounder and will at least send her a valentines card…
