This isn’t the first year that Elfie has visited us. She visited us once before, and I blogged about her mischievous adventures. At that time, our daughter wasn’t old enough to talk, and we really wanted to give her the opportunity to name Elfie herself. And so our little elf became known simply as Elfie – in line with Baby E’s other animal friends: Fishie, Puppy, Froggy…
This year, Baby E loves Elfie! She wakes up in the morning, and asks me “Where’s Elfie?” and starts the search. And sure enough, she gave Elfie a new name as well: “Elfie Magoo”!
Christmas is one of my husband and I’s favorite times of the year. The decorations, beautiful trees, incredible meals, time with family and friends … I’d actually say it’s my very favorite time of year! Summer time is a close second!
One of our favorite things about Christmas is all of the activities around town. This is even more fun now that we have a little one to share things with. Everything is that much more exciting when seen through the eyes of a child that is experiencing things for the first time!
Both Sidney and Victoria have tons of activities for families during the holiday season. Here are some of our favorites, and a few new ones that we hope to try out this year:
Elfie has the voice of an angel – I can’t believe only bunny turned her chair around!!
Elfie auditioning for The Voice
Looks like Elfie was up late wrapping one last gift for under the tree!
Looks like Elfie was having a little midnight snack – roasting marshmallows over an open fire!
Knowing that my husband & I met on the dance floor, Elfie hoped that she might be able to do the same!
Incredibly, despite Bunny’s inherent talent for bouncing, Elfie pulls ahead in the nightly sack races! Goooo Elfie!!
