Our Christmas Elf, Jolly, came back this year with a different message for the kids.
He still did some crazy things around the house, but his purpose this year
was to spread a little cheer to others.
Some days he would leave the kids challenges to spread Christmas cheer to others.
They met his challenges head on and seemed to enjoy it!
|The first day he left peppermint seeds for the kids to plant in the oatmeal. He said they would see the seeds grow as they showed kindness to others.|
|This day we found him with Damon's wallet. He told the kids to go shop for the patients|
at St. Jude.
|Another day we found him like this and the kids were to make Christmas cards for those who were|
sick, lonely or sad.
|Proof that Jolly still was up to some crazy tricks.|
He was ready for us to decorate the Christmas tree!
|The peppermint seeds eventually grew to candy canes and then it was the kids' job to|
pass the candy canes out to different people!
On Christmas Eve morning, Jolly and Jingle (Walker and Lucy's Christmas Elf) left the kids a North Pole breakfast. The kids had a great time!
North Pole Breakfast:
Snowballs (powered doughnuts)
North Pole blankets (pigs in a blanket)
Plates, elf containers and napkins bought from Oriental Trading
