Annual call from "Elfie"...

My son has an elf. She is the elf for our whole extended family, incidentally, and she calls every year around this time to check up on the kids.

Last year I thought the secret was out. My son came in and said after talking to Elfie: "Mom... Elfie sounds a lot like Grandma, doesn't she?"

Well, I don't know if he's onto her or if he just really wants to believe that she exists, but he love his phone call with "Elfie" yesterday.

However, I have a bone to pick with Elfie. My son asked her what Santa's favorite cookie was, and she said Chocolate Chip. Then, he asked her what her favorite cookie was so we could have some waiting for her as well. She couldn't have said Chocolate Chip, or sugar cookies... noooooo, not Elfie. Apparently, Elfie like coconut macaroons with macadamia nuts.

Thanks Elfie. Thanks for putting me through a lot more work to keep up the illusion! Thanks a bunch!
(Love ya, though!!!!!)
