Buddy the Elf

On December 1st, this little guy showed up on our Christmas tree!  We had seen the Elf on the Shelf movie, so the kids were super excited to have an elf of their own.  After we read the book Elf on the Shelf, we were ready to give him his magic and named him Buddy. 

The next morning, the kids found Buddy riding the chicken on top of the fridge.  Lauren kept saying "I cannot believe that crazy elf is riding the chicken!".  It was so funny!

Buddy flies home every night to report to Santa how the kids are behaving.  Every morning, he sneaks back in and hides in a new spot to watch over Ethan, Austin and Lauren. He definitely is a little mischievous elf!

The day after Buddy played with my antique sewing machine, he hid in the bird cage.  The boys decided he locked himself in "jail" and made sure we left the door open so he could get out.

Buddy loves syrup!

We have had a lot of fun with Buddy and we are excited to see where he shows up next!

Buddy looks like a very fun elf.

I'm glad they are enjoying Buddy. I guess once children reach a certain age, Buddy leaves for a new house with younger children.
This post is how I realized mom thought she was talking to you after 30 minutes into our conversation. She said she liked my elf post.
