Just when I thought Santa might send our Elf a bit early this year (and you KNOW I was thrilled about having 20-something days of Elf time!), I received some sad news.
It seems that there was an accident in the North Pole today. I don't know all the details, but it involved racing and sleds and it didn't sound good. Anyway, our Elf was injured pretty badly. It looks like he will make a full recovery, but he broke several bones and is in a full body cast. Unfortunately, he's going to have to remain immobile for approximately 2 weeks - possibly more, depending on how
Looks like our Elf is stuck on the shelf. He can still watch the kids and tattle to Santa, of course, but there won't be mischief and messes for Mommy to clean up every morning. What a bummer. Poor Elf.
