Our elf Bernard arrived here last week. He turned up in our Christmas tree on the front porch, wrapped in brown paper with postage stamps on him, and he even had a suitcase this year!!! I feel like he's making himself comfortable!
We did have to rescue him and bring him inside though, as he somehow ended up on the front lawn during the course of the day. We're not sure if a passer-by was trying to steal him, or an errant dog or cat thought he'd be fun to play with but either way, he needed to be inside! He mustn't have minded us having to pick him up though, as he has been up to all sorts of mischief since then!!
He wrapped up Montgomery the Moose head in Christmas paper (quite badly too I might add!),
spent a bit of time in the freezer with the Lego men and Christmas tree icecubes!
We've also found him hiding under my paper Christmas tree forests, swinging from a garland, chatting with old Ted, and hiding in the plant on the kitchen counter. This morning we found him swinging on our Snoopy lights!
I wonder what he'll get up to for the rest of the month!!
Miss Penelope and the Little Dude have been very excited to find him most mornings, although we were all taken out by a nasty stomach bug over the weekend, so looking for Bernard was pretty low on their radar.
This was the general mood in our house over the last few days.....
Even the dogs are just 'blurgghh'.
We did have a little bit of a revelation of sorts a few days before the-second-practice-run-this-year-of-the-Zombie-Apocalypse hit us though.....
Look how long Miss Penelope's hair is when it's actually smooth!!!! And it's not that she doesn't ever have her hair washed or brushed. Just that we don't normally get time to take notice of it, as she hates having it done and within 5 minutes it's back to crazy bed head frizz. She is also still going through this weird no shower or bath issue, so getting her clean is such freaking hard work......
But isn't it pretty!?
In other news, we bought a hopefully amazing mattress over the weekend, and with it comes an adopted koala!!
Well....kind of but not really literally..... See, the mattress company is the Koala Mattress Company and with every purchase they adopt a koala at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital on your behalf.
So world, meet Dunbogan Dave, the newest member of our family. [insert a billion smiley faces here]
And so to leave you all fully updated on our weird little collection of stories that we call our life, here are some photos of the moon that I took last week, or maybe it was the week before. I don't really remember except that they are awesome!
