Sam, our sweet little Elf , has returned from the North Pole. Each year Sam (the boys named him) arrives the day after Thanksgiving. His sole responsibility is to watch the kids behavior and then fly back to the North Pole to give a report to Santa each night. In the morning, after the boys awake, they discover that Sam has returned from the North Pole and is hiding in a new and different place!
This has become such a fun family tradition for us. The boys have been so.......looking forward to Sam's return this year. They have literally been counting down the days for months now.
When they woke up this morning, they bolted out of bed and headed downstairs to see if indeed Sam had returned and where he was hiding.
Riley was the first to spot him-- perched high on the kitchen chandelier.
And YES...it does make a difference in their behavior. They were remarkably good today! Let's hope they keep it up!!!=)
Does your family have an elf friend too?
