Last year, Bradley wrote Santa a letter to receive a Magic Elf. I found this wonderful site with great free printables to do your own elf. It was really great and I will post those pics later.
This is our elf Jingle. He did not create a lot of mischief last year, but when he arrived this year on December 1st, he was on our entry chandelier with a note attached to him. "I'm back and I have brought a surprise!"
Below him was a present covered with peppermints.
And a letter from Santa explaining that Jingle was a wonderful elf and he was chosen to train a new elf...but beware because the new elf was more mischievous. The boys named him Jack Frost.
Day 2 - reading "Llama Llama Holiday Drama"
Day 3 - Jack trapped Jingle in a jar full of apples on top of the kitchen cupboards.
Day 4 - Jack gagged Jingle so he could take a bath in marshmallows and peppermints. I am having a talk with Jack today about the need to be nice while having fun.
