Shauntea's Final Acts


Being our first year with an elf, I thought we did a pretty decent job keeping up with Shauntea every night.  Then the flu hit our house, more specifically, it hit Momma and Daddy was surviving as best he could!  So Shauntea, bless her little elf heart, behaved for a night or two while everyone was preoccupied.  Carli even noted that Shauntea sure was being sweet not getting into trouble while Momma was sick!  :)

Here are the last few pictures of Shauntea's activities at our house before Santa picked her up on Christmas Eve night to take her back to the North Pole.

Coloring with some of the girls new coloring books and crayons.


Eating some Christmas Candy the girls brought home from school.


Sitting in a birthday hat hanging from a balloon on the fan. 
Had she been super inventive, she could have turned the fan on and taken a ride, but Shauntea knew her limitations!

 
 
Keith did an awesome job bailing me out more than once during the whole Shauntea experience.  He got up one morning and noticed I hadn't done anything with Shauntea and quickly put her in the time out chair surrounded by the girls Christmas Chain links they had put together with Naggy.  Carli was quick to point out that Shauntea must have fallen while trying to use the links as monkey bars and put herself in time out!  

Keith even wrote a farewell letter from Shauntea to the girls to find on Christmas morning.  Ava was a little upset that Shauntea left but opening presents helped her a lot!
