We had quite the merry and adventurous Christmas day in our household, but more on that in another post. This post is about Holly and all her antics that she's been up to this fine month of December. Who is Holly? Well she's our elf of course! We had a lot of fun finding new and different places for her to hide and I must give most of the credit for Holly's hiding spots to Loving Husband - who sometimes even got out of bed and grabbed the camera to go tuck Holly into a new nook... sometimes having to seek her out of Ace's daytime hideout for her -where ever that might have been. :)
Both kids enjoyed Holly being around. Ace did great not touching Holly until we said it was ok - and he was especially amused the morning he woke up and Holly was above his head. Mae enjoyed Holly too - but mostly to chew on. She did love toting her around after Ace had discarded her.
There were a couple of days he was stumped as to where Holly was... specifically the one in the car and amusingly enough the one where Holly was hiding (and covering her eyes) amid the pile of stuffed animals. One night we simply forgot - Holly laid on the kitchen floor all night where Ace had left her before. No picture was taken... Ace found her pretty easily - we sorta passed it off as that's where she hid. He didn't seem to care too much. Another night we forgot before bed, so the next morning LH quickly hid her away so Ace would think he thought he was still looking - so after dinner I quickly hid her on the scanner and wala Ace found her when we suggested he go look. :)
It was a lot of fun and a silly nightly game. Last night Holly was perched on top of our Christmas tree to watch all the excitement of Christmas morning - and tonight I plucked her down for her to sit with us and watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas with us for her final night of festive fun until next year.
