Ollie the Elf

Let me introduce Ollie.  He is our Elf that came for a visit last night.  He was found on our door step with a special letter from Santa explaining his purpose this Christmas season.

Ollie is our new Elf.  Our previous "Elf on the Shelf" took a leave of absence to tend to a personal matter. 

Finding Ollie and the Santa letter. 

Santa's letter
Ethan and Aiden have had a lot of discussions these past few weeks about whether they still believe in Santa.  They are leaning towards the idea that Mommy and Daddy actually buy their gifts and just put Santa's name on the presents.  I would never do such a thing!!  The only reason they haven't fully jumped ship on Santa is because they don't want underwear for Christmas. 
Seeing their faces when we drove up the driveway and they noticed a package was priceless.  Aiden opened the box and pulled Ollie out and screamed "he is real... he is real".  I don't think I am ready for them to stop believing just yet.  This time is just too fun and it seems like they are learning that Santa might not be the real deal earlier these days. 
Well... Ollie wasted no time with his mischievous behavior this year. To our surprise, we woke up to find this:


Just waking up to find they are stuck in their room.
But not for long!
 Mommy found out during the night what Ollie had been up to because Aiden had one of his coughing fits so I had to get up to give him his inhaler.  Of course, I didn't want to mess up his handy work so I had to crawl through the tight spaces and I am not as small as I used to be.  Thankfully, there wasn't a camera around to capture that sight!
We are anxiously awaiting Ollie's next move tonight but he better watch out because the boys are prepared to let Santa know about his mischievous behavior.
