Elfiebell Snowflake: Day 7
This was by far the easiest in terms of execution yet the most difficult in terms of locating. The girls searched for about fifteen minutes - investigating every room, in closets, under beds, and uprooting cushions - with a slight hint of panic and desperation setting in near the end of their search. Elaina finally found Elfiebell camouflaged among the peppermints thereby ending my inner conflict on whether I should help them find her or let them go to school thinking maybe their behavior didn't warrant a return trip to our house. I like to keep them on their toes. After all, there's only two more weeks to hold this threat over their heads; I might as well get as much mileage as I can out of it, right?
