Otter Antics, Week Four

Dear Ian,

Holy moly is time zipping by!  We are exactly one week away from Christmas, and we have had so much going on as we prepare for the day.  You, Daddy and I have been having a blast, and I cant wait to have a minute or two to sit down and write about all of it. 

As for now, I have just enough time to give you an update on our favorite elf.  He has been one busy little dude.  Must be something about this house that keeps us all hoppin'.

Otter started off the week by reporting to Santa via Ham Radio.  He had a report called all filled out for you, and we got to take a sneak peek at it.  It was pretty dang good looking, and we were all super excited to see that "Nice List" stamp in the corner.
 The next morning, Otter spelled out your name with some Legos you left on the floor. 
 Silly Elf.  It's a wonder he didn't wake you up with this silliness.  Here he is sliding down the railing of our stairs.
 Otter wants to help remind us of the reason for the season.  He and the angel from our nativity are worshiping baby Jesus.
 This was super fun!  One morning, Otter hid 10 candy canes around our house for you to find. We had so much fun looking for them, and then we used them to decorate our Christmas tree.
And the last photo for this post:  Otter brought you some amazing snow from Santa's work shop.  Of course it's not real snow, but it is really soft, and it kinda feels like snow.  It was a lot of fun to play with.

We had a great week with our little elf, and as Christmas gets closer, I am sure we will continue to have fun.  Only sad thing is, once Christmas comes, Otter will have to head back to the North Pole, and I just don't know what we will do with ourselves in the mornings.  But we don't have to think about that yet.  Let's just have some more fun!
