Day 11 - Bath time.
After yesterday's snowball fight , the elves needed to clean up. This one was a bit tricky. I wasn't sure if I should do it with just Clyde. But I knew the kids would be full of questions: "Where is Ginger? Why didn't she come today?" Then I remembered that...

Day 4 - Ugly Christmas Sweater! (And chocolate!)
You doesn't love a good Christmas sweater?! Clyde found an awesome one! (At Fred Meyer. It was a Christmas ornament, but I thought it looked delightfully elf-sized!) Yesterday, after church, we went to the Outlet mall in Lincoln City. Jillian and I both nee...

Day 3 - Christmas Flair!
So, as promised, Clyde decorated his own tree. The kids forgot that he had little ornaments for each of them. :) I forgot that I had thrown away the tinsel last year after Christmas. Which stunk a little, because I like to cover Clyde in it. Elves can be me...
