It seems like once a year or so I have a post where I announce I am a bad blogger and that I am back to make it right. Well, I'm back, again. Since I have discovered facebook, I haven't had a need to update this blog until now. A friend insisted that I enter a contest revolving around the little, scary elf on a shelf. Just do a quick Google search or look on Pinterest and you will see hundreds of cute ideas to play into the magic of Christmas and keep your children behaving well. However, the twist to this contest is that the elf should be photographed doing something inappropriate. As Barney Stinson would say, "Challenge accepted!"
We were already playing by our own rules. Lauren was terrified of the original elf and wanted a girl elf. So we sent a special request to Santa and surprise, surprise our pleas were answered with a perky, pretty little thing that the girls named Raquel. She has only been in our house a few days but as gotten into a few situations that the girls didn't quite understand - strip poker with the Kens - but that is as far as I am willing to go with the girls. They just thought it was a card game with the boys' shirts off. Wink. Wink.
Someday, when my girls are adults and hiding the elves around their houses, I hope they can appreciate their mother's bizarre sense of humor.
