Ornament Trafficking

It was a cold day in California.

Hubby assembled the tree, literally.

The box of ornaments was down from the closet.

They were sorted through.

Each precious piece distacting us from what was about to take place.

Suddenly we sensed dissonance.

An evil squeal of delight was heard.

There had been an invasion.

Once up, was now gone.

A trail of artificial pine sprinkled the carpet.

A spot, approximately 3 feet high on the tree, bare.

The perp, a pig-tailed todder, with a quick hand.

Her jet loaded with the goods.

Probaly headed to Mexico. Or Cuba. Or McDonalds.

We think she's working with a partner.

She goes by the name of "Darby."

  5. Nancy said...

    aha! I knew my 19 month old must've had an accomplice! It must have been Darby because surely he couldn't have removed all of our ornaments by himself so quickly.

    Little stinkers. :D

    Hope she clears customs. The street value of sparkly baubles has really gone up in South America. You gotta watch out for the Black Market Happy Meal toy kingpins. They will bite your ankles and be gone before you know what hit ya!

  33. ParentingPink said...

    LOL! We don't have any ornaments at the bottom of our tree because my 3 year old and 1 year old keep taking them down and trying to eat them. No, they are not edible. So, half our tree is decorated and the other half looks like it needs psychological help! LOL
