We got my daughter an Elf on the Shelf this year, and I’m learning really quickly how much joy it brings her and how much work it brings me! It’s amazing to see her face light up each morning when she runs around the house trying to find Rosey and see what the elf has been up to the night before.
It’s hard for me to come up with new ideas and then keep a straight face when she runs in the room and say, “Mom, you have to see what Rosey did last night.”
Then I’m reminded about how much fun it was when I was a kid and I woke up on Christmas morning, rushed downstairs to see what Santa brought, and dove into the presents. I have a feeling Rosey is a new addition to the Christmas season, and I hope that this is one tradition that will be passed down.
What about you? What reminds you of the joy of the holidays?
My give away for the Advent blog is a $10 gift card to Amazon or B&N.
Thanks for having me.
