Naughty or Nice...

Several of my grand-kiddos discovered these little Elves 
making mischief in the Christmas tree bows.

Lively little characters with curious expressions
that captured a three, four and six year old's imagination.

"Grandma, you have Elves at your house, too?!"
Their bright eyes sparkled with absolute wonder.

Oh, they know all about Elves... 
"they watch to see if you're naughty"
the four year old exclaimed with conviction.

"We have one at our house, Mr. Glimpse,
and every morning he's in a different place." 
chimed in the 6 year old.

"Do your elves see us Grandma?" 
the three year old asked with concern.

Oh yes, they do! I wisely replied.

And I'm certain they will tell Mr. Glimpse 
all about your weekend with Grandma.

Love those little elves... they worked their magic.
 No naughty kids here.

We just welcomed our 16th grandbaby into our hearts.

Grandchildren are God's gift to tired old mothers who persevered.
