Bunny and the Elves

While we were decorating in the private home last week (the one I've been sharing photos of), the owner's daughter came in with her children. The darling granddaughter is three and looked like an illustration in a Kate Greenaway book for children; dressed as she was in a green smocked cotton dress with polka-dots and a bow perched precariously atop her head.

As they entered, the grandmother said "Look, (child's name), I have elves here, decorating my tree!"

The granddaughter watched a few minutes and then said to her grandmother (whom she calls 'Bunny') in all seriousness....  "Bunny, are you Santa Claus?"

And the grandmother answered  "No sweetie, why would you ask that?"

The child replied...."Well, you have elves working here."

I thought it was very funny, in view of the fact that two of the elves (Pam and I) are nearly six foot tall!

Cute story! Kids say the darnest things.

Oh and that group photo was terrific. You do stand out in the crowd!

I agree with Mildred...!

That's a cute story. I wish you had snapped her photo although Bunny might not have liked that. Hey, there's no real "rules" for elves, are there?

that must have made you feel young and elfish:)

That is so cute.
Sounds like Grandmother doesn't want anyone to know she is one by having her grandchild call her "Bunny."

I love how kids think. They still believe that anything is possible. :-)
