Yes, an Elf straight from the North Pole! It all started with Bug writing a letter to Santa asking for one of his Elf’s to come stay at our house.
Then one night when Bug and I were sitting on the couch reading Christmas stories and the doorbell rang a bunch of times, Ding Dong Ding Dong Ding Dong! Bug immediately new this was unusual as no one had ever rang the doorbell that many times! We ran over to the door opened it up and say an Elf straight from the North Pole! Yes the real deal! These elf’s have been known to show up just after Thanksgiving and they can be anywhere. In a backpack, in the freezer, ours came to the door. Such a polite Elf!
Our Elf came with instructions from Santa on how to care for him. Things like how the Elf likes crackers and ice water at night. The crackers remind him of crunching snow and the ice water is like melted north pole snowflakes. The note told us that the Elf’s go on nightly Elfcapades doing silly things, playing and hiding. Bug has to sprinkle North Pole Snow Flakes (the Elf brought them with him) on the Elf before bed so he can come to life during the night.
Bug has been loving his new Elf friend. He goes everywhere with him. And boy is it fun to see what this little Elf does during the night while we are all sleeping. He has hidden in some funny places, like in the Christmas wreath and this morning he was in the fridge drinking from Bug’s sippy cup. That made Bug giggle, Silly Elf! About a week ago he got the big container of smarty’s down from the top of the fridge and there were wrappers and smarty’s everywhere!
You can read dozens of user-submitted Elfcapade Tales to see what these little Elf’s are capable of. Some of my favorites:
“I just had to share the latest Elfcapade our magic Elves went on. Today the girls woke up to strings of pink lights all over the room decorating it just like a princess room. The Elves took them and hung the lights up in the girls’ room to bring to life the Christmas spirit! They even hung snowflakes in-between the lights. I think the ever-busy Elves also have plans to hang a ribbon door curtain in the girls’ room. We found tons of ribbon hidden under the bed!”
“One morning I couldn’t find my elf anywhere! I looked and looked and I still couldn’t find her. I was so worried but I knew she was hiding and had been up to something. When I got home from school, I noticed several elf shoe prints on the kitchen countertop made out of flour. The next morning I found her on our stove with little peppermint cookies. She had written me a note saying, " I hope you like my cookies the ingredients came straight from Mrs. Claus’ kitchen!", Love Elf Shelby. I took the cookies and my note to school and shared them with my class. I know Elf Shelby was so happy I shared them with friends.”
“Elf Freddie is always trying to find the best hiding spot. This time we almost never found him. The whole family looked in all the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the pool house, the den and the sun room. My little sister finally found him in our home theatre watching "The Santa Claus" movie. Stacked on either side of him was probably every Christmas movie ever made! I hope he doesn’t mind me borrowing a few to watch?”
We have enjoyed having our Elf visitor this holiday season and will definitely be asking Santa each year for him to send an Elf to our house. It is so much fun and is definitely adding a special magical element to this Holiday Season!
Parents can purchase a Travel Ticket for an Elf to come visit their children! See all the details at www.elf-magic.com.
*Santa sent us an Elf Magic Elf, book, snowcase, & outfit so we could tell you all about our experience with him and all his silly Elfcapades.
