Here's part of the story she told. I love it because I can just hear her teacher's influence. FYI - her teacher is from New Zealand. Listen for there's a stable out the back and what kind of animals live in it. Loving every bit.
Buddy helped clarify some bits, especially the insence gift.
And Cally added her thoughts about Santa.
Based on her comment here, can you guess what her reaction to seeing Santa was yesterday?
On another note, I'm incredibly thankful for the arrival of our own Christmas elf, who we named Elvis. You can read about the elf on the shelf phenomenon here. I love that it's the story of another family's tradition and we can share in it. But most of all, for me, Elvis has renewed Buddy's belief in the magic of Christmas. He's been totally wrapped up in it ever since he arrived. And that's the best gift yet.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Wishing you all the joy of the season filled with the love of family and the spirit of Christmas.
