Naughty elves ate the advent chocolates - I did have to suggest that they didn't eat the girls advent chocolates for fear of tantrums (and thankfully mine were left alone too as Mr H realised it would have the same consequences!)
Time for the elves to report back to Santa via "Santa Cam" (aka burglar alarm sensors!). Whenever the little blue light comes on we tell the girls that either Santa or one of the elves is checking up on them. Seems to work!
(After taking this photo Mr H realised that he could actually set it up on timer delay but I reckon his mug in the background is quite amusing!)
I reckon he's slipping...by now the inspiration really seems to be lacking...
Miss R thought this was great because she could easily pick her elf up without touching her (and so she wouldn't lose her magic...the elf....not Miss R...Miss R doesn't have magic....I don't think...although come to think of it....)
The problem was she wandered around with her and then put her in a basket of washing because it would be cosy and we put the washing on...
When she realised Daddy had put the washing on (hence why there's darks and lights mixed...lets not start on THAT one!) she came haring downstairs at a rate of knots!
Jolly was rescued. Not sure that Fimo and pipe cleaners would withstand a wash - even at 30!
