Cookie, our Elf on the Shelf 2016, Week 5

Cookie, our Elf, had Coke with Santa, spent a day in a hockey skate and ate a lot of sweets last week. 

The night leading up to Christmas Eve she thought it was about time to open some gifts. A Rubik's Cube!

One of the gifts I got for our entire family (because realistically there would be no White Christmas) was a bunch of cotton snow balls. We had a good indoor snowball fight, and days after we still discover snowballs under a chair or behind an item.

It was only a matter of time till Cookie made herself comfortable in the snowball pit, right?

As we hadn't cleaned up yet she kept hanging out on our Christmas ski cabin themed table.

I got ourselves an 80s Tetris lamp. You can stack the pieces individually as long as the make contact, the light is on. Cookie thought it was super cool!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away - must be true for elves as well!

Now here's a subtle hint! Get those last grocery run done already, here's your wallet, a shopping basket, some vouchers, let's go, I'm ready!

All right, we got everything we need for NYE and beyond. Now let's play! When we were sorting through old toys, Colin was not quite ready to part with his LEGO Duplo. Cookie agrees they're still fun to play with.

Now for our family 2016 was a pretty good year even though I lost my aunt who was only 68. Overall though Cookie thinks it's time to say goodbye to this year.
