this christmas, i started two new traditions at home:
in a nutshell, your personal family elf (stuffed doll) appears (mom brings out of the storage) during the holidays to watch over the kids. each night he flys home to the north pole while the kids sleep to report back to santa. then he flys back before the kids awake and is always in a different place (mom finds a new spot). it's an incentive for kids to be good, and provides a fun game to see who can spot him first every morning. it hasn't helped with the bad behaviors in our house, but it's cute to see mini-he tell him all the good things he's done.
he named our elf, crispy.
12 days of christmas
to teach the minis that christmas is also about giving, i am giving them a present each of the 12 days, then christmas day is their day to give presents to others when the family comes over. on day three, mini-he caught on and now runs to the tree every morning when he wakes up. it's not going over so well with mini-she...i know she's still wondering if there will be anything under the tree on christmas.
tell me about your holiday traditions!
i'm being featured over at breakfast with tiffany today.
