Here are a few highlights from the time our elves Buddy & Sarah spent with us in December:
Claire tested positive for the flu in mid-December (even though she had a flu vaccine back in October!), and it looks like she passed it on.
Rudolph noses! Buddy & Sarah managed to paint the girls' noses red while they were sleeping.
Welcoming my mom the day after she flew in from Oregon.
Saying goodbye on Christmas Eve.
The girls woke up at the crack of dawn every single day to find Buddy & Sarah. There is a lot I didn't capture in photos as well, including the elves covering themselves in Band-Aids, making sugar snow angels, eating a plate of brownies, and hiding candy canes in the kitchen. Overall, they were pretty on top of their game this year. Rumor has it they may have purchased an elf tricks kit on Etsy to help them out a bit. I can't blame them - I'm sure it's hard to keep things interesting day after day! Ella said she wished that the elves could live with us year round, but I think they are probably enjoying their little break in the North Pole right now. ;)
