Christmas is over and the decorations are all put away until next year…

and Jingle the Elf has gone back to the North Pole to hang out with Santa and the other elves until it’s time for him to come back to visit us next year.

I thought, though, that I’d share with you the final exploits of Jingle’s visit to us…

I think he really outdid himself this year. I’m beginning to wonder what next year will bring – the more he is with us, the more mischief he gets into.

You can see what I mean:

There were “snow angels” on the kitchen counter (in my flour)

And lights in the hurricane lamps…

A little fishing expedition in the fish tank (that, thankfully, yielded no fish)

And a date with Barbie (he has a thing for Barbies, I think)

Played games with the critters…img_0678

And ate some kisses… which he ate and shared with the girls.

Reading Christmas stories…

Flying with the unicorns in Little Bit’s room…

A zipline (!) in the family room…img_0947

He watched some TV and took over the remote control…imgp3995

Loved on Little Bit’s snowman…

Did some hanging around (while we were gone to Ammi’s no less – SuperMan reported nightly on his activities from the night before)

We came home from Ammi’s to find he’d set up a swing set of sorts in the living room…

The girls were pretty amazed to find this whirling around in the living room.  I wonder what the housekeepers thought when they came that day?

And the final night was quite a blowout party, apparently, with the Barbies and some New Years’ Eve type décor (complete with strobe lights and disco balls)

Oh my.

Tiny game of Uno… so funny!

So, while the girls are missing Jingle this week, I can’t say I’m sad to see him go.  There were quite a few messes to clean up and I’m thinking next year, Jingle needs to bring his own clean-up crew!!

One thought on “The mischievous elf

  1. I think this is the cutest thing ever! I wish they’d had this when the boys were little, or I’d thought to do something like that…. it’s a tradition that can be carried on even when their older, just for fun and can be done with their kids someday as well. How fun!
