Wow! It is so hard to believe that this is our last Project 26 theme of the year! And what a theme to end on, JOY! If I could think of one word to describe this past month, it would be Joy! I love Christmastime and celebrating the birth of our Savior. While do our best to emphasize the Savior this time of year, we like to have a little fun too! On December 1st each year we have a tradition, the Magic Elves. In our house the kids are more excited to see the elves than they are to see Santa!
And this year we had a new elf addition to the family, Holly. Previously, we had Snowflake (Hayley’s elf) and Rocky (Colin’s elf). But now that Sydney is two we thought she needed an elf too! Hayley decided to give Snowflake to Sydney (with the blond curls and all Snowflake and Sydney share quite the resemblence) and ask Santa for a new elf. Hayley was really hoping for Holly, which is one of Santa’s prettiest elves (and whom with the brown braids and all looked just like Hayley).
Well, Sunday morning came and so did the elves!!! In true elf fashion there was a magical breakfast laid out for the kids filled with everything sugary and sweet (miniature red and green sugar topped pancakes, strawberries with a hint of sugar sprinkled on top, elf juice boxes, candy canes, taffy, and Christmas tree cakes for “dessert”). And not two, but now three elves were here: Rocky, Snowflake, and Holly!!!! The kids were completely filled with JOY!! We were too! I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!
