Marco the Elf

We decided that an Elf might help to make the kids be a little more grateful this year. 
Patrick was very doubtful that it was all real so Marco wrote him a letter and talked about stuff Patrick had worried about. After that Patrick was a believer. 

He kept showing up in funny spots and the rule is the kids are not allowed to touch him or his magic will be gone and will won't be able to fly to the North Pole. Well guess what? Elena touched him. Yep he laid there doing nothing for maybe 2 weeks. Then we emailed Santa and he sent us a bag of magic powder. Elena sprinkled it on him and that night he was gone and his magic was back. 

The last night we found him in the perfect spot, remembering the reason for the season.
