A special package arrived from the North Pole this morning. Package was addressed to Violet and Gryphin. The elves note read, "Santa said you can have this early."
All Violet has talked about for the last week and a half is the Elf on the Shelf movie. She watched it at school. I've been reluctant to get it because the animation is so horrible:P. Yes, we are cartoon snobs here, but she loves it and that's all that matters.
Last night our troop and two others sang Christmas Carols at one of the retirement centers.
They handed out Christmas cards after they sung. Violet asked a lot of questions when we left about why all the "old people" live together. I tried to explain it as simply as I could. In the end I ended up comparing to a college dorm. Which if you think about it, is kind of true. Everyone lives in the same building, some have room mates, you eat meals in a cafeteria, there is a lounge, etc. Violet said that sounds like fun. I agreed.
We got done super early with our caroling so we decided to get some popcorn at Target. We do this often in the winter. We also picked up one more thing for Daddy for his birthday. She saw the photo spot and wanted me to take a picture.
Underwear and diapers on the tree. Violet does not like this prank. She's concerned that the elves where in her room last night. I left her drawer open with underwear hanging out and a trail of underwear out into the hall and down the steps.
I decided that I couldn't just shove these in a dress up box or hide them away so I attached them to plaques to hang. We can still take them off and wear them because I attached them with velcro. I turned Violet's plaque long ways so I could add a hook to hang the headpiece.
