a little tradition...




Last year we got this darling book. It comes with an elf that your family gets to name. We named our little elf "buddy." {real original i know}
You aren't supposed to touch him, because he will lose all his magic. Every night buddy goes back to the north pole and tells santa if we've been good. He then appears somewhere different every morning. Sometimes he is in the Christmas tree, the closet, pantry, etc...
he watches you all day and then reports to Santa at night.

Absolutely darling, and my kids LOVE this...

Well this morning we found "buddy" in the kitchen on the chandelier. He's so funny!

Our elf is Bernard and the kids love him. We have ornaments hanging from our chandelier too. How funny!
