He's Baaack!!!

Look who joined us for dinner tonight.

When Colin walked in the door, I told him someone would be joining us for dinner.  He sheepishly grinned and asked "Who?"  He went over and his face lit up when he saw the elf.  I think he must have forgotten his name because he called him "the elf."  Totally understandable considering he named him "Poof Guy" last year.

Poof Guy left Colin a letter that Colin was very eager to read.  He listened very attentively as I read.

Then the questions began.  Was he sitting there when I got home?  Did he already have that food?  Does he have a fork?  Can Daddy touch him?  Is today Christmas?  Is tomorrow Christmas?

Meanwhile Sawyer couldn't stop looking at him and grunting and pointing.  I learned really quickly that I'm going to have to make all the hiding spots up high because a 1-year old doesn't understand the no touching thing.

For inquiring minds, Poof Guy had a healthy sandwich with lettuce, red peppers, cheese, and bacon.  Sounds delicious, no?

Here's hoping Poof Guy works his magic and we have 23 peaceful days ahead!

  2. We brought ours out yesterday, and i posted about it too. Completely understand the whole hiding him in high places. E just doesn't get it quite yet either! Good luck!!
