AN ELF OF A GOOD TIME FUNNY STORY TO GET YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT
For Issue 2 of TFBM Magazine I did a shoot with Gayle Dawn Photography and the Hadley Family. It started as a styled family session and finished with a cookie decorating party shoot. I brought out my elf on the shelf for an added touch and found out the Hadley children didn't have an elf. It was so fun talking to them, especially Maddie the eldest about the elf and her magic. I reminded her of the one most important rule, children can not touch elf on the shelf or she loses her magic. Well that's when it all begun!
You see I propped little Rosie up on the table on top of a wrapped gift. She looked darling. However when the cookie decorating began Rosie toppled off the table and TOUCHED Maddie! Maddie gasped in horror! "I didn't mean to", she pleaded. "It just fell but it touched my shirt. Did she lose her magic?", she asked me.
Except Rosie's new perch was not acceptable to her either so off she toppled again and landed on Maddie's foot! Eyes wide with fear she gasped again! "I didn't touch her, I promise!" I quickly grabbed her off Maddie's foot trying not to giggle and moved her to the top of the tree.
Where whole new set of issues began with her little brothers...
