The Christmas Elf

Joy went to an Elf themed Christmas party and won the costume contest  for the best elf costume, which she made herself!

With the help of a green dress she already had, hot glue and lots of cotton balls!

I thought a red tulle skirt would be cute over the green dress. Don't you love tulle!? Tulle is my friend! : )
But this may be the first time tulle has ever let me down because it wasn't cute and she didn't end up using it. BUT, my Christmas tree ended up getting lots of red tulle bows on it after she left for the party and they helped disguise the fact that that poor tree only 'lived' for about 2 and a half weeks. Nothing like a tree with the needles on the floor to say 'Merry Christmas' when you walk by. lol Oh well. As you can imagine, it will not be seeing us into the New Year since it made a quick exit to the curb after Christmas. : )

Wasn't she the cutest elf ever?! Love you, Joy!
