Day two – kids are waking up and immediately seeking Elfred out. As soon as I wake up the chosen spawn (aka whoever found Elfred) happily regales me with the play-by-play of discovery. It is so adorable. Then the rest of the morning is complete with kids chatting with Elfred, saying goodbye to Elfred as they leave for the bus, and then sharing/comparing Elf locations with their friends.
I get that the Elf thing is a totally marketing inspired tradition, but it is freakin’ awesome. I love it. My mom would have loved it. She would have insisted on daily photos and stories, so it is only fitting I post it here, on this site dedicated to my love of my mom.
So, here is day two.
