Special Delivery!

We still haven't figured out where all this stuff is coming from.  We know that some of it is from Santa himself.  The letter from him had his address and was on official Santa Letterhead.  Everyone knows that you can't just pretend to be Santa, or impersonate him, that would put you so far on the bad list that you would never get another present from Santa.

We were out in the living room, minding our own business.  Kaitlyn had conked out in the chair (stealing my spot I might add).  I went to move her covers for her and there is a delivery on her bed.  Not just a note, but STUFF!

There was an Elf Code note.  Very cute.  A shopping list with crazy things on it.  The first few items on the grocery list were, "Candy Canes, Candy Corn, Marshmallows, Giant Marshmallows, Syrup, Peppermint Patties..." and the tooth rot just went on and on.  There was a pair of super warm Christmas socks with a tag that said, "Wish you warm and cozy toes this winter.", A Christmas tree frosted cake, and a pair of candy canes shaped like a heart. 

It's all very suspicious if you ask me.

A Letter from the North Pole!

Today was the most surprising of all. 

I had run to the store, and Kelley and Kaitlyn had been home for a bit.  Kaitlyn was sent to her room to get her jammies so we can put them on.  She's in her room a few seconds and we here, "Mom, Dad, guys I think I found something."  We hear, "It happened again!". 

Having no clue what she was talking about we go to see.  There was a letter on her bed.  It was addressed to, "Kaitlyn Elizabeth, Pink Bedroom, Doern House". So, whoever it is has been stalking us, they know where she sleeps.

We go to look at the letter, and it's from Santa Claus himself! 

Inside was a letter, just for Kaitlyn!
Dearest Kaitlyn,
Have you been naughty or have you been nice?
I’m making my list, and I’m checking it twice.
Are you picking up your toys?
Do you make your bed each day?
If I asked your Mom & Dad, “Good or Bad?”
What would they say?
Do you mind your manners?
Say, “Thank You” and remember, “Please”?
How often do you say, “Bless You”
When someone happens to sneeze?
Are you throwing tantrums,
Yelling and throwing things?
Are you going in your pull-ups and panties?
Are you being mean?
Remember to keep your behavior good!
Be your very special best!
I may even send a friend,
To make sure you pass the “Nice List” test.
We have no idea how the letter got here, but at least now we know who it's from.  At the same time, this one referred to a special friend, and the other one said it would be HER special friend. 

Things are just getting more and more crazy.

Another tiny note.

Well, Kaitlyn did REALLY well today.  I was very impressed with how much better behaved she was.

We went into her bedroom to get her PJ's.  I asked Kaitlyn if she had been coloring on her bed.  Again she said no.  We walked over to her bed to find yet another miniscule note.  This one said, "Kaitlyn, It's very busy this time of year.  I won't be able to sneak a visit again, Keep up the good work, keep being good, and he'll let me be your very own special friend." There were tiny glittery holly leaves on it also.

Now, on top of the crazy note this note came with a delivery owl.  An adorable white snow owl.

Who does this type of thing?

We thought maybe it was the owl but owls don't wear shoes, and their feet are totally the wrong shape.  I told her maybe it was Tinkerbell, but then we figured Tinkerbell wouldn't be walking, she'd fly.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Sneaky visitor

Today has been a very interesting day. 

Kaitlyn has been a terror.  Just not wanting to cooperate with anything.  She'd say she wanted milk, I pour her some milk.  She wanted her milk in a sippy cup.  I pour her milk in a sippy cup and she wanted chocolate milk.  So, chocolate milk in a sippy cup, then comes the epic, "But I wanted to stir it!".  That was just the first argument of the night.

We are getting ready to bed.  I walked into Squishes room to get her jammies.  I look over and swear that she had wrote on her window sill.  I call Kaitlyn in, ask her what she drew on her windowsill.  Kaitlyn says she didn't do anything, so we investigate.

What I thought was coloring on her windowsill turned out to be teensy tiny footprints.  I can't imagine what would leave footprints that small.  We followed the trail of footprints and they end at a itty bitty scroll.  (Seriously?  Who uses scrolls now days?)  We open up the scroll and there is a miniscule message inside.  "Kaitlyn, Please be good or I won't be allowed to come meet you."

Very curious indeed. 

We have no idea at all where this could have come from. 

We thought maybe one of her stuffed toys had done it.  Kaitlyn very forcefully reminded me that her stuffed Kitty "Sparkles" does NOT wear shoes.  My next guess was a horse, they wear shoes.  "Mommy, horses are tooooo big these are tiny foot prints."  We also discussed our cat Tazz, he's a trouble maker, but she's right he does not wear shoes.  We discussed maybe her little people toys, but again, no shoes. 

I have decided that if I ever get to have a conversation with the note leaver I am going to specify nothing exciting that close to bedtime.  After we got her calmed down she informed us that she was going to lay really still, keep her eyes closed and when she felt her visitor visiting she was going to catch him and bring him to me.

Any idea's who would leave tiny cryptic messages on a child's bed?  Not to mention we were in the house the whole time, the footprints led from the windowsill and the window was locked.  They must have magic or something to go through a locked window.
