Day 14: Cutesy was hiding in a great spot. It took quite a bit of time for Boogs to find him under the console table. Cutesy had a big yarn ball with a note, "I thought you needed to unwind. Pull here."
Day 15: Boogs awoke to find his doorway blocked by a giant balloon Christmas tree. The tree had to be relocated to the closet door in Boogs' bedroom so Boogs could get in and out of his room.
Every year, Cutesy the Elf tries to trap Boogs inside his room. This is what he did last year:
Boogs kept the lights on his door for weeks. But, he did have to rearrange them around the door frame to get out of his room.
Day 16: Boogs found Cutesy lounging in a deflated beach ball hammock with The Boys' Book of Adventure (I think Cutesy found the book at a used book store). Cutesy had bookmarked four pages. It looked like Cutesy had worked on the ideas from those four pages. He made himself a hammock, started a heroic saga for Boogs to finish, left a riddle to solve, and started designing a maze for Boogs to complete.
Day 18: Cutesy was hanging out in the curio cabinet with the Playmobile guy next to Nonnie and Papa's picture. That Playmobile guy has been hiding all over the house for three years. We went to a scuba diving museum in Florida several years ago. The museum had Playmobile figures hidden in each display room. It was like a treasure hunt to find them. We took that idea home with us. Since then, Boogs and I take turns hiding the Playmobile guy.
