Sugarplum visits Kayli – Nov-Dec 2015

On Nov 27, 2015, the day after Thanksgiving, Sugarplum came back to visit us.  You may remember that she visited us each day from Thanksgiving to Christmas in 2014, and once again, she brightened our mornings from Thanksgiving to Christmas with her mischievous antics — she is always getting into things.  See below for all of the crazy things she did and places she hid.


On Nov 27, someone rang our doorbell.  On the front porch we found a box that was addressed to Kayli.  Kayli immediately tore into the box and revealed…SUGARPLUM!!!

On Nov 28, we awoke and Kayli made her way through the house in search of Sugarplum.  Kayli finally found her on the kitchen counter, where she had pulled out a bunch of cooking supplies and left a sign that said “Let’s make breakfast!”

On Nov 29, Kayli woke up and began her search for Sugarplum. She found her in front of the Christmas tree where she was taking pictures of Kayli’s stuffed animals!

On Dec 1, Kayli did her normal routine of searching for Sugarplum.  This morning, Sugarplum had left Kayli a message by some blocks Kayli had put together. Then she decorated our pantry door with a snowman.

On Dec 2, Kayli found Sugarplum in our living room. She had squeezed herself into a candle holder. It’s amazing the tiny placed she can get into!

On Dec 3, Sugarplum accidentally got herself all tied up — with toilet paper! Not sure why she had it rolled throughout the house though…

On Dec 7, Sugarplum sat on the kitchen counter, and left a note for Kayli. The note read:

“Dear Kayli, These are magic seeds. Plant them and they will grow into something special. Don’t forget to sprinkle them with magic dust to help them grow. Love, Sugarplum.”

Kayli was quick to plant the ‘magic seeds!’

On Dec 8, Kayli got up and checked on the crop she planted the day before. The magic seeds grew into — CANDY CANES! Sugarplum hang on the cabinet above the newly grown candy canes.

On Dec 13, Sugarplum was relaxing beside our Christmas tree. She was holding a sign that read: “I put a new ornament on your tree. Hint: it looks like me!” After a (very) quick search, Kayli found the ornament, and it looked just like Sugarplum!
