Last year a little Elf named Taffy had went to play with Judah’s cousins at their house after Thanksgiving. One day she had come over to visit us and he was so excited that he didn’t want her to ever leave. Since it was close to Christmas, I told him that this year we would write a letter to Santa and ask for an Elf to come play with us. And so we did!
He was so excited to write his letter to Santa. I helped him with the letter of course, but he drew him a picture all by himself! I told him I was sure that Santa would bring him a little Elf to play with and tucked him into bed. It’ll be really nice to have a little friend around because he is so crazy about Christmas and it is still a month away!
Last year I knew that my niece and nephew wrote a letter and put out crackers and water to lure the Elf into their home. After everyone went to sleep Taffy arrived! So I’m sure our new little friend won’t arrive until after I fall asleep.
On the other hand, I know those little elves get up to some extremely crazy Elfcapades! This is when they can do all sorts of mischief. Although they are known for doing good deeds, so you never know what will happen! You can actually read stories from all across the world of other children’s Magic Elves and their Elfcapades!
Judah tucked his letter under the tree where he figured Santa would find it since that is where Santa puts things for him. Pretty smart idea! Hopefully tomorrow our new little friend will be here to play games, drive around in Judah’s trucks and snuggle up tight for sleep overs. I’ll make sure to take photos, especially of any mischief going on! I have to say though, that even if the little Elf gets itself into a mess now and again around the house, I’m still really happy to start our very first holiday family tradition.
