Ginger the Elf, week 3

Has it only been three weeks since we started this? I will admit, I am running out of places to stash poor little Ginger where Salean can look but not touch! But, this week went so fast, I almost forgot it was Saturday night and with another week over, time for a Ginger update! 

Sunday morning, Ginger was peeking through the branches of the tree, looking at a puppy she brought last week!

This morning, she brought an ornament made of string! Salean thought it was boring and let me put it on the tree right away,

Monday, she was caught hanging out on the coat rack. Salean didn't seem to see her much, but she found the bag with her ornament in it quite quick!

This one we made last year, Salean's hand print at one year old! Another that didn't interest her much...plain baubles must be boring!

Tuesday, Ginger hung out in our laundry room, in a box of spare parts and instruction books.

And she brought this oldie, one I received when I was a child; a character from an 80's cartoon. It was banged up before Salean got hold of it, but she had to shake it multiple times to hear the bell ring. She also tried to steal the present! She reluctantly surrendered it after being told "no no" a few times.

Wednesday, Ginger hung out on top of Daddy's sword again. Salean spotted her right away and went back several times that day.

Today's gift is a little Tim's coffee cup, this was a great plaything! She immediately ran to her corner kitchen and started playing coffee. 

I had to sneak the cup away and onto the tree during breakfast. Thankfully, she didn't miss it. 

Thursday, we were back in the laundry, this time hanging out in the lint bag. She is peeking around the corner towards Salean's bedroom.

Salean received a little teddy bear this morning, but would not let it go! She stashed it and then eventually took it to bed with her that night. So, in it's place her first Christmas ornament adorns the tree. I decided not to let her have it, as it looks pretty fragile.

Friday was another day hanging out in the tree, this time on the very top! 

Ginger brought a star for the tree. It replaced her at the top that night, as this was another Little Miss was reluctant to give up! 

This morning, Ginger was found in the pocket of my apron, maybe next time she will bring some cookies along!

A plain white bauble came with her, and I guess I should retract my earlier statement about them being boring, because this was the most fascinating ornament of the week! Thankfully it is quite sturdy, because it was bounced, knocked, rolled on everything and even got a few licks! I had to sneak this one away, to, so it landed on the tree after bedtime.

So that is another week over, so hard to believe Christmas is only a week and a half away! And, another week with no baby sister...I am officially due in 2 days, so it won't be long now!!

Have a good weekend, everyone!
