Well, the poster worked. Mom read the poster to the 4 year old this afternoon. Her plan was to wait until the 6 year old got home from school before letting them look for evidence of Gnome activity. Bad plan! 4 year old could not wait. She put her coat on and started looking right then. And she found the door. Now the strangest thing happened. She told her mom that she would not tell her sister, and that she would let her sister find the Gnome door for herself. See, there really is some magic that rubs off when dealing with Gnomes. I did not find out about this until after older sister came home from school and she found the Gnome door too. I was reading the paper and having a cup of coffee when I heard them yellin and screamin " we found them, we found them". They were at the door, so excited they hardly made any sense at all. The 4 year old had mud and leaves all down one side, and was jumping up and down, yelling "Tom, Tom, come with us, we'll show you." And show me they did. By the time I caught up with them, the 4 year old was laying on the ground with her ear up against the door trying to hear them. Well, of course she said "they're in there, I can hear them." About that time the 6 year old came running up with a little tool box, and a hammer in her hand. I asked her what the hammer was for. She replied,"I'm going to pry the door open so I can see them." Mom very quickly told her that that was not being a very good neighbor. When I left them, both girls were discussing how they could see the Gnomes. The last words I think I heard was M and M's.
