We had a visitor for a few weeks in December. One evening, we found this book in our school room.
The next morning, there was an elf in our living room. The kids named him Elmer. He was always moving around when they weren't looking and getting into things. The girls had a great time searching for him.
Here are some of the places he was found:
taking a marshmallow bath
snow angels in flour
The girls saying good-bye to Elmer the Elf on Christmas Eve before Santa came to pick him up.
