Thank heavens for Mrs. Peeps!

Meet Mrs. Peeps. This came in the mail yesterday, December 1st, to Prince Charming and the 2 Royal Daughters. (haven't come up with the princess names yet...M loves Cinderella, so that just may stick.) Anyway, The King brought in the mail and said there was a letter from Santa to the kids.

This is what the letter says:

Christmas is approaching and this is the day
Santa has sent Mrs. Peeps to your house to stay.

He sends this small elf to your house and mine
The first day of December she must be on time.

Mrs. Peeps has a purpose. Her purpose will be,
To whisper to Santa all the good that she sees.

From December 1st to Christmas she watches to see
If your presents should number thirteen or three.

Soon after she gets here she moves only at night,
To high places, she stays in plain sight.

In the kitchen, for instance, she sits high on a shelf.
Mrs. Peeps can sit anywhere, for she is an elf.

She holds very still when she thinks you are watching.
Her magic is precious, it fades when ones touching.

She sits on the tree on Christmas Eve day.
She knows that Santa is soon on his way.

She waits and she waits without making noise,
She waits until Santa arrives with the toys.

From her notes they determine the number of toys
Placed under the tree for all girls and boys.

So you better be nice and mind what you say
Because Mrs. Peeps will tell Santa when he comes in his sleigh.

Once Christmas is here and Santa has come
Mrs. Peeps must leave, for her job is well done.

But she will return next year on the very same day,
To watch your behavior as you work and you play.

They were both really excited at first for Santa to send Mrs. Peeps, but the oldest princess, Cinderella had doubts about her.
She said, "Mrs. Peeps is mean, she's not suppose to tattle.(sp??) HAHA, I thought that was cute.
Prince Charming on the other hand was too excited to sleep. He went to bed and after an hour and a half of sleeping this was our conversation.
ME: Oh my, you're not asleep yet? (freaking out cuz it's 9:30 pm, and he's got preschool in the morning.)
PC: I have been sleeping, is it morning yet?

He was so excited to see where Mrs. Peeps was going to be in the morning that he couldn't sleep.

Well, maybe you should go check your mailbox or doorstep and see if Santa sent Mrs. Peeps to your house!

Now, Mrs. Peeps is suppose to be an actual elf....but when you live in Wendell and it's a last minute run to the store....your pickens are limited. Maybe next year, Santa will bring a REAL elf.
