Gawpy’s Grand Entrance…


Remember that Elf on The Shelf thing, the one that looked so awesome.  The one that we got all excited about…  The one that we told you about the idea and then went out and got the awesome Gawpy – named him and everything.  Well it was time for him to make his grand entrance.  In true Alfino form it is super, duper late, seeing as you are supposed to do it from 1 December already.  Before you get too excited, let’s just put it out there that the entrance wasn’t very grand, more of a “bad word with a G that I cannot think of – although fail works too“…  But, it was an entrance nevertheless.

Gawpy was quite unsure what to do…  But I suppose he got a bit of stage fright, he has never done this before you know.  So, he thought it would be good to prepare himself for the occasion by doing some light reading on the subject…

He realised that Kyla loves, no adores puzzles, and that’s when the idea hit him…  Like a ton of, um, puzzles…

Mix up the pieces!  That will drive her crazy – it definitely works when Mommy does it!  Surely it will work!  So the stage was set and Gawpy waited in position all night – gotta give it to him, he really is committed!

In the morning, after she insisted on putting on her “wed dwess” it was time…  Time for the awesomeness to unfold, time for her face to light up in joy and excitement, time for the world to almost blow up because was just too exciting to bear…  A bit to much expectation on my part you think?  No ways!  Anyway, I wasn’t quite sure how to broach the subject with her to make her end up with that specific reaction, so I said that there was something special in the lounge waiting for her.  Clearly poor old Gawpy, who had done so much planning, was not nearly as interesting as the new cookie jar…

But eventually she saw him.  And, well, seeing as you are reading this, you can probably tell that the world didn’t blow in awesomeness.  It was the most unenthusiastic reaction I think I have ever seen, by anyone, anywhere.  Riya did manage a bit more enthusiasm and immediately pulled off his hat and that was pretty much the end of that…

They did enjoy the biscuits though…

I’m not going to lie…  I feel a bit de-motivated – as you can probably tell, seeing as this was the only time we have done it.  But maybe we’ll give it another go tomorrow morning…  Maybe…  I’ll end this post with more pics of my beautiful girls, cos I mean really, look at them who could resist!
