Elf on the Shelf

I have spent the last few weeks adding personal touches to our generic Elf on the Shelf, and despite objections from LMS to introducing a "Spy" into the household I was looking forward to the Christmas excitement the Elf would bring to the Littlies.  It didn't quite work out like that!  Little Prince is a bit too old and literal to really believe in the Elf, but he did very well at pretending for his little sister, well done Little Prince.  Princess Lollipop however, got very worked up about our new house guest.  She couldn't settle to sleep and got out of bed sobbing, as I was insisting she return to bed, she ran off downstairs to find (a hopefully more sympathetic) LMS.  LMS managed to calm Princess Lollipop down and I finally got her in bed and to sleep.

LMS calmed Princess Lollipop down by telling her that our Elf was really a Fairy who was friends with Tinkerbell and Peter Pan :-)  And this morning Fairy Figgle was sat on the mantlepiece holding a note for Princess Lollipop saying how sorry she was for scaring her and hoping they could be friends.  Princess Lollipop seems to be much happier about the Elf transforming into a Fairy and was even talking to her this morning.  Hopefully she will still be happy about her this evening at bedtime!
