Bell Tradition

When Wade and I got married, a good friend of ours gave us a silver bell and told us that we had to get one each year.  So far so good.  The most difficult years have been 1999 and 2000.  But we managed to find them online.  Do you have any ornament traditions?

Elf on a Shelf

The girls got very excited this year when an Elf showed up at their school to watch the children.

When school got out for break, an Elf showed up at our house.  Meet Joy.

Every night he leaves to give Santa an update on the girls and then finds a new spot to hide each morning.  It is like Christmas each morning as the girls run in to see where Joy is hiding.
