December 1, 2013 is a day to remember,
For it’s the first time we met our newest family member.
Declared by Ever, Snowey shall be his name,
Quickly we learned of his love for games.
That little mischievous elf, all day sits in the house,
Eavesdropping for Santa while being quiet as a mouse.
Then as all of the humans fall fast asleep,
Snowey dashes off with out a peep.
To the North Pole to frolic with his playmates,
Sipping hot chocolate, singing and gliding on ice skates.
With Santa he stays for just a little while,
For the sun is rising and he owes a little girl a smile.
Back to the house, quick as a whip,
He pulls off a little trick and then listens in for Saint Nick.
During his second year here,
This is where we found him as daylight grew near.
His first night back, he arrived on a trusty steed. Ever missed him a lot.
Julius was slow to Snowey’s game, he thought that Ever’s mom left this note for him. Foolishly he rewrote the message I ❤ U. Snowey didn’t have time to fix it before the little one found it. Ohh well it’ll do.
Clearly the work of a human. But he is right, Snowey does love you.
Snowey was feeling extra rambunctious this night. He stayed on the tee-peed tree all day.
He made a winter wonderland, out of powder (flour) and brought Ever a little Christmas tree to keep.
Business meeting? Conspiracy? Poker tournament? We’re hoping that the Buddah kept this evening of debauchery under control.
That silly guy climbed up on Ever’s window chime and hung around with a little monkey all day.
After school we came home and Snowy and the cat were in the midst of a battle royale with all of the toy dogs in the house. He was riding the statue of Friday like a horse. He even made a little sword.
Not to be defeated the next morning the dogs got their revenge and locked Snowey into a container.
Phewwww, it was about time for Snowey to take a bath, he was still covered in flour from his silly night making snow angels. He brought Ever little snowman and santa shaped bubble baths.
Ever wasn’t too happy about this night that Snowey crossed her name off of her stocking and put his name on it. She had put up a special Snowey stocking just for him, but I guess her’s seemed nicer.
Today while we were at work and school Snowey had a little fun playing trains. Ever gave him a lecture about sitting in unsafe places, silly Snowey is too big for toy trains.
Only 9 more days of having Snowey around, we sure do miss you while you’re gone. It’s been fun little buddy.
_________________________________________________________________________ We’re really into the Elf on the Shelf if you didn’t notice. In fact I have a hard time touching him when I have to move him. I don’t want for him to lose his magic on account of me.
The other night I thought it would be fun for us to watch the DVD that he came with. I was quickly informed that we no longer had the DVD. Where it went? The little (slightly older) neighbor kids weren’t buying that Ever actually had a magic elf. So she gave them the movie,
“So, that they could believe”.
This is seriously the best part of Christmas.
