Elves week 3 2015

We have been crazy busy! Between getting ready for Christmas and the hubs ear surgery and Bug’s ear surgery. I’m tired. I know technically we are in week 4, and I will try to post that one tomorrow.

That is until they got to run up to a door, leave the bag, ring the bell and hall booty back to my car lol. Not sure if we will do it again next year. It was fun to spread some anonymous Christmas cheer. I got the jingled letter here .

This past week , the Elves weren’t too creative and fun. Granted they have been visiting us for years and it was a stressful week. I feel things could have been a little bit more creative.
