Our New Holiday Tradition - Elf Magic Elves and Their Elfcapades!

We don't have very many real Christmas traditions in our home and adapting new ones isn't that easy. Well this year we have become a part of not only a great tradition. but a tradition that brings a big smile to my child's face as well as mine. What is it you may wonder? Well, Thanksgiving night my daughter and I sat down and together wrote a letter to Santa Claus asking if we could have a Elf Magic Elf come visit us for the holiday season. Would you believe that the next morning my daughter awoke to find an Elf Magic Elf, named Kat in our Christmas tree!! 

Below the tree rested her snowcase (suitcase) and belongings. She brought her pillow, blanket, games to play, snowflakes and even her passport and ticket back home on Christmas Eve. She also brought along a very special book explaining all about how she got here and the reason for the season.

 Kat came here from the North Pole to share in Christmas and all that we do. She brought with her magical snowflakes that we sprinkle upon her nightly to activate her magic. We set out some crackers and water ( an Elves favorite food of course) and turn out the lights.  While we are all fast asleep, Kat finds herself getting into all kinds of mischief. In fact her first night here we awoke to find her in the freezer! I think these Florida temperatures are too much for her. We have started keeping the A/C just a little lower.

Every morning is a new adventure and we can't wait to get up and see what Kat has got herself into during the night. She likes to hide a lot, and even pulled our stuffed Santa in on the action. When we woke up this morning they were swinging from our chandelier.

My daughter has become quite attached to her Elf Magic, Elf. The past few days there hasn't been a place we have gone that Kat didn't go to. She has already built a special place within our family and we will be sad to see her go, on Christmas Eve. We do know though, she will back to spread more joy and the magic of the holiday season again next year. I also heard that when a child has been extra good, Santa will allow the Elf to visit on a few special days throughout the year.

If you would like to start a wonderful family tradition with your kids, you can check out and learn all about how to send Santa a letter requesting your own boy or girl Magic Elf to visit you this holiday season, and get travel ticket prices! You can even see what fun other families are having with their Elves and the crazy Elfcapades these little guys get into to. I also hope you'll join me through-out the month as I update you with special stories and photos from our own Elfcapades.

We have had an elf named Finny who has visiting our home for the past 3 years. My kids LOOVE it. he likes to play tricks and cause mischief. Last night he cut out LOTS of paper snowflakes and left the mess ALL over the house and then was found hiding on the shelf with the scissors still in his hands. Silly guy.

Enjoy your elf. Our HAS to be our favorite holiday tradition!
