Skippy spent most of his time on the counters or up high where little hands (ahem, Easton) wouldn't touch him. Olivia was terrified he would touch him and Skippy would lose his magic. We assured her that he wouldn't because Easton didn't know any better, but luckily Easton never touched him.
Olivia thought the frozen cereal was yucky, but Easton had 4 bowls one morning.
Christmas Eve....time to tell Skippy goodbye. That face!
Pretty sure Easton didn't even notice Skippy this season, but wanted in on the "goodbye" action.
In an attempt to get her to quit crying, I came up with the brilliant idea to go out and spread the magic fertilizer outside so Santa would know Skippy was at our house. Then John politely pointed out that we may get bugs due to the amount of sugar that was thrown out. Whoopsie!!
....but she was able to come in, kiss him and feel good about him heading back to the North Pole.
He left her a note along with some of that magic fertilizer/dust on the table where our cookies were. I am sure he is back at the North Pole with all of the other scout Elves talking about all the kids. He saw a lot during his month here with us! See you next year Skippy!!
