Santa, we have a problem. Remember Elf? He fell. Now, I know your book says that if we touch him he looses his magic, but I suspect we dropped it right out of him anyways. So, please try to understand our sad predicament.
First we wrapped him in duck-duck, then we tucked him under the Christmas tree. We're now submitting a plea for forgiveness. Try to understand that a 4-yol and a 6-yol really can't keep their hands off a dandy Elf. We can't. We tried, but it didn't work out.
We're really sorry. We're not bad boys, not that bad anyway. Could you find it in your heart to fix Elf before Christmas?
