True story - one of my friends actually wrapped her living room in toilet paper the other day and blamed it on the elf. Not even making that up.
So...when your elf arrives you are supposed to name him or her. Our elf is a girl, so we were sitting around trying to decide on her name together. Kate typically names everything Kate so I was hoping to avoid that. I was throwing out all kinds of cute names like Peppermint or Holly or Jingle Bell....and Kate rejected each one. Nick chimed in and said "How about Consuela?" and Kate happily agreed that her name was Consuela. Way to go Nick. So we have a hispanic elf that Kate calls "Bu-sill-a" because Consuela just doesn't come out of her mouth.
I'm not going to lie - Consuela is creepy. If I fail to wake up one morning because she ran down the hall on her tiny little felt legs and kills me in my sleep, it was nice knowing you all.
