No Elf On This Shelf!

A few weeks ago Addy and Lexi came into the house and were looking around at the decorations with a funny look on their faces.  Addy piped up: "You don't have one of those creepy elves sitting around looking at us do you?  I assured her that there were no "Elves on the shelves" here at the Pines...just scary YaYa and PawPaw!  They were both relieved about that! Then last night I told them I had made an appointment to get them a manicure and an elf was going to do it! Addy got a panicked look on her face.  No not that Elf! This Elf:
Our good friends have a daughter who's a nail technician and she was giving holiday manicures all week dressed as an elf....After seeing her picture, Addy was excited! So after work I grabbed them and off we went to visit our nail polishing Elf!
Selections had to be made on what design and colors...Addy is very focused and serious in this step!
A hand and arm massage almost put her to sleep!
Red, with an ornament and jewels, was her choice.  Next it was Lexi's turn.
She went with a blue theme that included snowflakes and jewels!
Nice choice!
Lexi's finished design
Addy's finished design.  Tomorrow they have a Christmas Eve party at their Mom's and other Grandma's house, and now they can go looking festive! (Santa will be impressed I'm sure!)

How cute to come to work dressed as an elf :)

I like what she did with your grand daughters' nails! Very festive indeed!

Hi, dear YaYa! That's the cutest elf I've ever seen and what a special treat it was for her to give Addy and Lexi manicures and festive holiday nail designs. Thank you for sharing these happy moments with us, dear friend. I hope there will be many more in the coming days, including your successful surgery and full and complete recovery. My thoughts are with you. Merry Christmas and may God bless!

The girls look marvelous dressings up like a Christmas elf is a good idea for that young lady. I but the youngun's enjoued it.

You're such a good and thoughtful Nana to those girls.
Love the elf girl manicurist idea. It must be fun for her too dressed as an elf to bring the spirit of Christmas to her job

Merry Christmas

That is one pretty elf. I bet the girls loved her. Both Addy and Lexi must have gained so much confidence with their nails done in such a festive style. You are a cool grandma. Merry Christmas to all of you guys.

What a fun grandma you must be!

And you know what? I'm kinda glad they didn't have those elves on shelves when my kids were young. Seems like they kinda creep a lot of kids out.

That little elf wasn't in costume yet, but she gave me a holiday manicure last week, and it still looks great today. She also painted Ellie's nails, and they were her pride and joy for days, and she gave Tommy two snowmen. One of his was picked off by the time we got home, but part of the other one lasted until our family gathering three days later. Great job, Elf!
