Finding a location for Eli to "play" with another toy - in this case the Cowardly Lion, was not an easy task. Luckily, we had not been using our pellet stove for a day or so, which made it the ideal spot. Both kiddos are afraid of the pellet stove so I knew they would have no interest in going near it! Mad Man woke up first and saw him. He loves Simba and now calls every lion Simba, so he just kept pointing and repeating "Simba!" He was so excited to show T when she woke up. T couldn't believe that Eli was playing with one of her toys. She also couldn't believe that he found my playing cards. I love this whole elf thing!
