The tradition continues that the elf has to return to the North Pole on Christmas night to work on toys and help Santa throughout the year and then returns back to you in December. Well last year Greer left Christmas night and Hallie cried every night after that and begged for her return. After a couple weeks of this her Dad put in a "special" call to Santa and Greer was allowed to come live with us again but her magic powers wouldn't return until December.
So December 1st Hallie was so excited & sprinkled Greer before she went to bed. Guess what happened? Nothing! Greer had not moved from her spot the next morning and the house was still untouched. Hallie fretted about this all day. We finally decided that Santa was upset that Greer had stayed away so long from the North Pole and had taken away her magical powers.
Hallie was very disappointed but goes to bed so her Dad & I think she has accepted it until....we find this on our den floor
Then, we wake up the next morning to find this....
