The 2nd December was a long day ending with a party at Chuck E. Cheese from 4-6pm (see here).
When we got home the girls were high on sugar and too tired to eat any dinner. It did not make for a very good bedtime and in the end they went to sleep at 9.45pm, far too late for a Sunday night.
The Elf had obviously been watching this as instead of doing anything funny he left a message on the carpet by the toy box:
Suitably chastened the girls have been near angelic ever since!
