Elf on The Shelf 2013: Week 2

Another week of Elf Antics. Another week closer to Christmas. I have been busy making homemade gifts, baking, Christmas cards, and shopping! I started the daunting task of wrapping this morning. 

We also went to see Beauty and The Beast this week and have tickets to see The Nutcracker tonight. We also had three basketball games this week. However, The Boy only played in one game. He was injured in the first basketball game this week and has a concussion!  We has to be retested every day and when he can pass the concussion test he can return to practice.

Our Elf, Isabella, has been busy this week too. There have been days that I wonder if she is on Santa's Naughty List. 

 Day 8: Isabella brought The Short Chic a Christmas tree for her bedroom. It is pink, has pink lights, and even came with pink ornaments. The Short Chic loved it!

Day 9: Isabella was found on our kitchen table roasting marshmallows. It made me miss summer a little because snow came this week {just a dusting} and I miss camping!

 Day 10: The Short Chic had a hard time finding Isabella today. She was perched in our kitchen by the glasses. Personally, I think this is a great spot to hear most of what happens in our house!


Day 11: We woke up to find our house had been tee-pee'd. And Isabella was right smack in the middle of it! We had toilet paper all over the hallway, the photos, the Christmas Tree's. Jersey our cat LOVED it and enjoyed making an even bigger mess!

Day 12: I fully expected to wake up today and find Isabella in time out but no, she was just hanging out.


Day 13: Isabella was found on The Short Chic's bed with Abbey. She might have been trying to make up for her bad behavior or rewarding The Short Chic for cleaning her bedroom because she brought "magic seeds!" The Short Chic remembered them from last year and new exactly what to do.

She planted them in a bowl of sugar.

Day 14:  Isabella was waiting for us at the bottom of the stairs. The magic seeds had grown overnight and she was excited for us to see!

Overnight the magic seeds planted in sugar grew into candy canes!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas Season. This coming week will be another busy one for us.  Enjoy and we will catch up soon!
