IF - rambunctious


This rambunctious little elf is getting ready to string some lights outdoors at the North Pole. (For Illustration Friday this week)

I love the idea of elves scurrying about getting things done while everyone's asleep. I think I'll leave a list for them tonight and see if it's all done when I get up tomorrow. Here's some of the things I'd like them to do:

*Decorate the tree ( I got one today, but it doesn't have anything on it yet)
*Wrap the gifts I've gotten so far
*Buy or make the rest of the gifts I need to get
*Make cookies (who wouldn't want cookies made by elves!)
*Make and send my Holiday cards (I'd love to see what they come up with..I bet they are pretty creative)

That's it for tonight little elves - if you do a good job, maybe I'll leave the vacuum out tomorrow night!

Cute, jolly little elf! And he's happy to do the to-do's. If they do a good job, send them my way when they're done!
