Tiana's Self Portrait

Everyone. Let me just tell you that thinking of various mischievous things for an elf to do every night can be difficult! Eliza's little elf, Tiana, hasn't done anything too crazy because we don't want Eliza to think that being naughty is awesome (obviously. Tiana has written Eliza notes, taken Barbie's car for a ride, built a snowman out of marshmallows, and hung from the living room chandelier. I think the craziest thing our elf has done is gift-wrap our refrigerator. The kids all thought it was hysterical.
Nathan and I are beginning to run out of ideas, though.This is a hard business!  Last night, Nathan came up with a last minute idea for Tiana's trick: drawing a self-portrait on the Magna Doodle. Eliza loves her Magna Doodles, so we were hopeful she would think it was pretty funny. When she came out of her bedroom and saw Tiana sitting beside the Magna Doodle (which, to me, looked pret-ty creepy), Eliza couldn't stop smiling and laughing.
Several times today, Eliza has sat down and practiced drawing a picture of herself on the Magna Doodle. I guess her elf inspired her to further her artistic endeavors.

Parenting success!
