G could hardly contain herself. After weeks of singing Jingle Bells, many contacts with fake Santas and We were completely prepared:
~christmas pj's. check.~milk in santa cup. check.
~tasty cookies left on plate. check.
~carrot for rudolph. check.
After a rousing reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas G was off to bed with visions of sugar plums dancing in her head. Bobby and I were off to watch Its a Wonderful Life and wrap gifts because until that moment I hadn't wrapped one darn thing. Eek!
G looked for the BIGGEST carrot she could find at the store "so Rudolph could share with the other reindeer"
Boy (our Elf on the Shelf) in his final, Christmas Eve, location... super near the Christmas tree so he'd be able to inform Santa that G had been a good girl.
