A few days ago, my daughter woke up to find our Elf on the Shelf, Peter, holding an Elf on the Shelf look-alike cookie!
There was much discussion about why he had brown eyes and who actually made the cookie. Was it Mrs. Claus or Peter himself? Was it full of magic?
We came to the conclusion that it WAS Mrs. Claus! If Peter had baked them, he would have made his elf cookie have blue eyes just like him.
And of course it was magic!
I begged for one bite of the magical cookie from The North Pole.
She laughed. Then took a bite and laughed some more.
After a few more bites and me obviously bugging her with more begging, she thought about it for a long time.
It was the ONLY cookie from The North Pole. Full of magic and probably made by Mrs. Claus herself. What’s a girl to do???
She must REALLY love her mommy, because I ended up with an itsy bitsy teensy weensy corner of the cookie!
I guess a little magic is better than nothing.
