Elf Mischief Night 2 - Construction Site

Buddy & Max found the construction equipment and all of the blocks, to set up a construction site!
I love the tower of blocks!

The elves spelled out the boys names!

Mikey and Ryan were so excited!
"The tower had to be knocked down!"
- Mikey the demolition foreman

Buddy and Max, may or may not have taken a few blocks to the head, during the demo stage of construction.
Where do elves, buy elf sized hard hats?

Elf Mischief Night 1 - Truck Rally

Buddy and Max sitting on the mantel, before everyone went to bed last night.
They quickly hopped off of the mantel, and found all of Mikey's Monster Trucks, and set up a truck Rally!

Buddy has Grave Digger, and Max is playing with Back Draft...two of Mikey's favorite trucks!

Mikey's reaction was awesome!

"Why did the elves make a mess?"

Buddy and Max

Buddy and Max have arrived!
They thought it would be fun to change how they arrived this year, so they thought they would wrap themselves up in a gift box, and hide under the Christmas tree!

Buddy and Max


Finding a way to lay very still...

Hiding under the tree!

"How long before the boys wake up?"


The Christmas Tree

Mikey just sat on the steps and looked at the tree!

"Hey Mommy, there's something under the tree, who is it for?"


Mikey and Ryan, opening their gift!

For some reason...this part took for EVER!!!


"There's something in here!"


Max and Buddy!!!
