After decorating for Christmas, Blake did the honors of reading our Elf book. Each year after reading the book, Buddy our elf, appears as our happy little spy guy!
Buddy got much more adventurous this year, maybe because he trusts that the kids won't touch him now, because they love him so much?!? Having Buddy around is wonderful! Blake gets up before everyone, so he usually goes on a morning hunt for Buddy. When Tay wakes, the first thing you hear is, Blake asking her if she wants to go find Buddy...they walk from room to room with Blake asking, "do you see him in here?", then they cheer together as she finds him! I absolutely love that they wake up working together on something every morning, I sure miss Buddy when he goes back to the North Pole.
