Diddle's Wish List

Last night we went to see Santa and take him Mary Chandler and Jackson's Christmas list.  Diddle saw the photo when we got home and decided to make his own wish list and sit in "our" Santa's lap!   His list was quite interesting and the kids cracked up when they read it!

On Dasher and Dancer and Zhu Zhu Pet and Monster Truck??

The note left by Diddle this morning stated that last night at the North Pole Santa was doing a trial run hitching up the reindeer.  Diddle asked if he could ride in the sleigh, but Santa said there was no time.  Diddle decided that he would come back to our house and make his own sleigh and his own reindeer.  He settled on a red barbie car for his sleigh and zhu zhu pets and monster trucks for reindeer!  The kids giggled so loud when they saw their "elf Santa" waiting on the coffee table! 

Hello my fellow elves!!

So apparently our elf is friends with my friend Amy Faulkenberry's elf and they shared ideas while in the North Pole one night! (aka . . . this idea is stolen.)  Diddle left the kids a note and told them that while he was in the North Pole the night before that he realized that he was a little homesick and was missing his elf brothers and sisters.  He decided to make elf hats and put them on MC and Jack's portrait and appoint them honorary elves!  He said that would help him to not miss home so much!  The kids absolutely LOVED seeing this when they walked down the stairs that morning! 

Diddle says Hi

So on Sunday morning, Diddle showed up at MiMi and G-Daddy's house because the kids spent the night with them on Saturday night.  They found him in the kitchen baking cookies! Mimi is sending the photos, so they will come a little later.  On Monday morning, Diddle decided to dig into the candy jar and indulge in some M&M's.  Jackson had left a few out for him a few nights earlier to see if he would eat them and when they were gone the next day, Jack got super excited and decided that M&M's must be Diddle's favorite candy.  So, on Monday, Diddle was propped up by the candy jar covered in M&M's and he had spelled out the word "HI" with the candy.

Diddle and Elf Food

So on Friday morning the kids woke up and found Diddle in the kitchen where he had made himself a little snack of elf food!  He wrote to the kids that he had been really busy pranking them and he had forgotten how hungry he was!  Then, Diddle thanked them for buying special elf food for him.  He had found in the cabinet some mini pop-tart bites, Brownie Bites cereal, and Honey Nut Cheerio "elf doughnuts"  . . . ELF FOOD!!  He decided to prop himself up in an elf chair (aka- a Santa Claus wine bottle holder) and chow down!

Diddle finds a "picture machine"

I am so far behind on blogging Diddle's nightly romps, so here is the catch up!  On Thursday night, Diddle found a new "picture machine" in our kitchen and he decided to make some photos of himself.  He left a note telling the kids that they should try it sometime!  I am waiting to walk into the kitchen and catch Jack or Chan with their face in the copier!

Diddle the Decorator

So last night Diddle wrote the kids a note saying that our tree was pretty boring and didn't have very much color. He decided that he would redecorate it for us by going into the sock drawer and gathering up all of the socks and gloves and tossing them all over the tree.  Next, Diddle decided to hop into a monkey sock and become one of the decorations for the night.  The kids were so excited when they came down the stairs and saw the "new" decorations!
