My real life Elf on the Shelf adventures continue…check out part one Here
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #16
I’ve baked up pastries using yeast
With my apron and chef’s hat on.
Now I’ll cook you a tasty feast
Like boeuf ragoûts or bourguignon
They say that dogs are man’s best friend
But why?! I just can’t see.
They set me up and then pretend
The victim’s THEM, not ME!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #18
I’ve been hard at work for weeks
Trying to perfect this seat.
A gift for baby I’ll bestow
wrapped in nothing but a bow.
I’ve made it sturdy all from wood;
I can finally call it good.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #19
I usually don’t watch chick flicks
so please don’t ask me why
I’m watching one all by myself;
I must need a good cry .
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #20
I prefer to use a sewing machine
over a needle and thread.
It gives me time to get more done
and even to rest my head!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #21
Baby has some special things her mama can’t forget
Like a doll from childhood and a china tea set.
Since baby can’t yet play with them she’s sharing them with me,
But please just pour me eggnog instead of the hot tea.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 22
Christmas Day is coming and there’s plenty to get done;
I’ve been counting down the days on my fingers and my thumbs.
The wrapping paper, bows, and tape have all been scattered ’round,
Just a few more days now until Santa comes to town!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day #23
The boys were all in on the Flop;
One thought the Turn would help her
but they don’t play like the top dogs-
Their loss the River insured!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 24
Come now, babies, rest your heads
snuggled in the baby’s bed.
I’ve tucked you in all nice and tight
to read about that special night.
A baby born to show us love
sent from heaven up above.
The shepherds and the wise men knew
’cause angels told them as they flew
near a bright star in the sky.
For Christmas, He’s the reason why.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 25
Of all the Christmas music mama has
she most loves this piano book filled with jazz.
From “Deck the Halls” to “Silent Night”
I’m learning how to play them right.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 26
A few more days ’til I must go
Back to where there is lots of snow.
Gifts laying around
that make lots of sound
How to play- I don’t really know!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 27
I dabble in this and I dabble in that.
The pastels go “swoosh” and paints, they go “splat”.
I don’t know which medium I like best for art
so trying them all is a good place to start.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day28
Reindeer are a lot like elves in what they like to eat.
They’d rather pass on salads and go straight for the sweets.
But with a trip about to start that takes me back up north
The proteins found in dog food will surely have some worth.
A dose of healthy food disguised will help trim up this breed
and whip him in to shape to fly; my nimble, sprightly, steed.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 29
I love my elf clothes in red and green and wear them everyday,
but sometimes it’s fun to change it up;
it’s fun to try an array.
From makeup and dresses, to heels and hats, it’s fun to try a new look.
But I’ll soon be a good elf again and give back all that I took.
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 30
I need to do more exercise since I ate a lot of pies.
I can’t yet lift the heavy weight, so check back at a later date.
They say practice will make me strong-
That’s if I’m not doing it wrong!
Squishy Twinkletoes Day 31😭
The festive Christmas month much too quickly passed
My journey back to Santa went pretty fast
My time with you was swell
I must now bid farewell
The memories we made will forever last
es may have teared up the day I put her in the exercise pose when I got her in and out of her elf outfit for the last time! Such sweet memories with her that I will always cherish.
