Mer didn't just touch the elf.
She kissed him, hugged him and swung him around a time or two!!
She loved the elf.
Everyday, she would wave at him and say, 'Hiiiiiieeee!'
On this particular night, she wanted him down.
She was relentless.
The others were all upstairs, so I gave her the elf.
Emma walked in. Stopped in her tracks, eyes got huge and said,
"MOM! You better put that thing back before the boys see
because they think it's real!' Hahaha!
I was cracking up!!
