Meet Missy Snowflake Elf

On Friday when the children came home from school they found a tiny mystery door in our hallway.

Baffled by the door, the kids spent the whole of Saturday speculating as to what lay behind the door, and why it was there.

There were lots of ideas thrown around. After much discussion, and lots of bickering, Neil decided it must be something to do with Alice and Wonderland, because the door was very small but Alice could make her self small to fit through such tiny doors.

On Sunday morning, they awoke to find a message on our chalkboard table.

The message told them that a special parcel had been delivered through the door and had been left for them under the table.

The kids couldn't wait to open the box and see what was inside. They carefully opened the lid, and peeled back the red paper to reveal.... 

An Elf!

Yes, inside the box was a cute little lady elf named Missy. 

Packaged up with Missy was a beautiful Christmas Journal, and Elf Report Card, some children's behavior charts, an elf passport and her own little sleepy suit.

Also in the box was a letter from Santa, asking the kids if it was OK if Missy stayed with us for a while. The letter said that she would be staying until Christmas eve, and would report back her findings to Santa. We were asked to also report on Missy's behavior with the Elf Report Card.

The kids were so excited to have an elf come to stay with them, and nicknamed her Missy 'Snowflake' Elf.

So Missy will be staying with us until Christmas eve, and hopefully will be having a lot of festive fun with us over the next 24 days! Hopefully she will behave herself and won't get up to too much mischief..... but you know what those elves are like!

Linking up with The Reading Residence & Life With Munchers for their Elf Takeover. Head over and have a look!
