Day 1: As you know, he introduced himself with a book and an m&m message.
Day 2: We found Chester on the kitchen table playing Uno with Woody, Jessie and Buzz.
Day 3: Lilian was equal parts surprised and delighted to find that Chester had drawn all over the kids' portraits. She was especially pleased that he gave her hearts and glasses rather than a mustache.
Day 4: Chester got caught up in the strings of the blinds in the den. Lilian woke up a little earlier than normal and found me sitting at my computer. I looked over at her and realized that she had spied Chester in the blinds and was watching him warily. "Mom!" she whispered. "Is Chester still alive and moving? It's still the middle of the night!" In all actuality it was 7:10 AM but it was still dark enough outside, she didn't realize that and was certain she was going to actually catch Chester making a move...
Day 5: The morning after we had decorated the downstairs tree, we found that Chester had added some decorations of his own...
Day 6: Watching "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas."
Day 7: Maybe the snow we got over the weekend inspired this snow angel out of flour on the kitchen counter.
Day 8: A cotton ball bath in the sink of Lilian's bathroom.
Day 9: (this morning) Because in the immortal words of Buddy the Elf:
"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
