A couple of years ago, an elf that my kids endearingly named "Buddy" showed up on December 1st. He is a magical elf that sometimes moves throughout the house and hides as he peeks on the kids. (We are pretty sure that he picked up the flu with the rest of us, because he seemed to stay in one place for the last few days.) Below are some of the places we have seen him hiding.
It has been a fun tradition and I hope to make it a permanent part of our holiday traditions.
But I will say that the magical side of Christmas is just as important to our family traditions.
Sophie found Buddy hiding on the top of the lamp this morning. I think the look in her eyes captures that she has butterflies too. Perfect.
