The newest addition to our family (temporarily) is an elf, from the North Pole, named Nippy.
We were very surprised when he arrived Thursday morning. We have never had an elf in our house before. The boys found him on a lamp in their bedroom and a note was attached to the door. The note explained that every year Santa picks a few special boys and girls to host one of his "magical elves" for a few weeks before Christmas and this year, Santa picked the boys to host Nippy. They were very excited!
The boys were even more excited when they got home from school and found that Nippy had left them some cookies. Friday morning, he made their lunches, (which they thought was so cool!) and then after looking for him all over the house, they were suprised to find Nippy on my car dashboard when we left for school.
So, it is becoming ritual to find Nippy each morning. It is so exciting to see what our little elf has been up to as we all slept! I have heard that sometimes the elves get into a little mischief...this is going to be fun!! I think that we will all miss our little friend when he heads back to the North Pole, with Santa, on Christmas Eve.
