I have had my eye on the Elf and decided that this year my kids might be old enough to understand.
The Elf didn't make his appearance until today. I realize he usually shows up after Thanksgiving but I think he waited until we started decorating for Christmas. Can't really blame him, it is hard to be in the Christmas spirit in a house that isn't festive!
Last night, at bedtime, I read them the story of the Elf to plant the idea in their mind.
This morning my children were excited to see him, Wythe spotted him right away. I explained to him that we had to pick a name for the Elf. Wythe said his name was Notch, so Notch it is. I am not sure where the name Notch came from, but hey, sounds like an Elf name to me!
'til next time...
