Just like last year he's been moving around the apartment and doing all sorts of different activities. I've got to admit that he has been a little lazy at times. So far there have been three days when the girls have woken to find him still in the same spot as the day before, but he has made up for it by flying back to the North Pole to visit Santa and coming back to a different position while we've been out during the day. The first time this happened he left a note saying it was due to the rain but we've come to the conclusion that maybe it has something to do with me being up throughout the night feeding Mathilde. He can't move around when Mathilde and I are still up, can he?
Anyway, here's a look at what Elfie Pokie Nokie has been up to the first week of December...
On the first day Elfie appeared along with the advent calendar just like he usually does. He fits nicely into the big pocket for day 25. This is always his starting and ending point in our home.
On the fifth day we found Elfie on Kim's guitar. He had a plectrum in his hand and sheet music for Jingle Bells on the ground in front of him. Rock on Elfie pokie Nokie!
On the seventh day we found Elfie sitting under our new and undecorated Christmas tree. He had collected the salt dough ornaments that the girls and I made a few days ago and had started hanging them. I guess we interrupted him as he only managed to tie ribbon on two of the ornaments and only one of those had made it onto the tree. We'll tie the rest of the ornaments and hang them on the tree to help Elfie out.
Mathilde was quick to get into the salt dough ornaments and Elfie so I had to move him up high to the top of the tree. Those grabby little baby hands can't reach him there!
Now, technically kids aren't allowed to touch the Elf on the Shelf as this may lead to him losing his magical powers. I figure that babies are excluded from this rule so no damage was done when Mathilde picked him up!
Stay tuned next week for more adventures of Elfie Pokie Nokie...
