The kids have been over excited about him being back. The hunt to find him in the morning is worth waking for. Nolan has been trying hard to make sure he is being good and is willing to report to the elf if anyone else isn't. The other day Naomi was in tears because she hadn't been listening very well and was even more upset knowing the elf was going to tell Santa that she wasn't being good. She was later seen telling the elf she was going to listen. It was something like this: "Elf, LISTEN."... "Elf, I LISTEN."
Also over heard this week:
Ryan to Nolan (after many attempts to get him focused on supper) "Okay Vernie"
Nolan: "That's name calling and I'm going to tell the elf to tell Santa. He'll bring you a lump of coal!"
Ryan: "Yeah! I want a bunch of coal for Christmas. We could burn it in the garage and it would be way better than wood."
Anika and Nolan were writing letters and numbers.
Nolan to Anika "I'm writing nonsense words."
Anika little confused...
Nolan: "It's just a bunch of letters that spell nothing!"
