Mommy Elf

These photos were contributed by my old high school pal Katie.

Apparently my children are not only ones who think their Little People represent people in their lives. When Katie’s son Max saw this Little People Christmas elf, he immediately declared it was “Mommy”.

Clearly this little elf looks just like Katie.

It especially looks like her when she makes that face.

You might notice that the elf is holding a paintbrush. Katie thinks this might be our clue as to why Max thinks this elf is her.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who resorts to posing toys on the toilet. Bathroom lighting can't be beat.

Katie just finished painting her kitchen blue, the same color as what’s on the elf’s brush.

Now do you see the resemblance?

    Ha Ha ha I posed the elf on the counter next to the wall in my Kitchen. Our countertop in the bathroom is even uglier than the kitchen countertop…. :-)
