I hope a little light-heartedness is acceptable with this project. My father, whom I have been trying to convince to join me on this site, sent me these pictures the other day and I wanted to share the smiles I got from it. Hopefully, some well meaning comments will coax him into joining our community?

Anyway, the little cutie is my god-daughter and my dad decided to let her imagination soar by doing some renovation to the cherry tree beside the house. What started as fun decoration for Mel soon turned into a fantasy adventure for her and two visiting girls. As the story goes, elves took up residence and the girls had a wonderful time feeding, providing and “actually” observing the elves. The girls took a moment to search the internet and discovered elves favorite foods were peanuts and blueberries. They quickly made sure there were plenty of both sitting at the door for their new elven friends. ( Excellent things to know for future reference)

Only in Keeblers cookie land, only in Alice’s wonderland, can a childs mind be introduced to “imagination”

What a wonderful gift to give to one you love

I really like this.

This is the great stuff that comes from making things. Her imagination must be on overdrive. Thanks for making it a great day for everyone by sharing such a great moment for you.

It is always a good thing when an adult can get caught up in little kid’s imagination. It is a win win for both. Tell your Dad “Good one” we need more people like him on here.

Yeah, get the guy to sign up. With such a creative mind your Dad is bound to entertain with his projects. I love the little door knocker.
