Christopher is a jolly little elf that has bendable arms and legs so he can be put pretty much anywhere. Every night Christopher magically leaves and reports back to Santa in the North Pole and then returns before the children wake up and finds a new place to perch and watch them. The kids are having fun with Christopher. Each morning they run around the house trying to find Christopher. They know they can't touch him or he'll lose his magic that Santa gave him (the magic that allows him to return to the North Pole each evening). They like to read the book that explains how Christopher came to our house. It's a great new tradition and I'm happy the kids aren't scared of him.

Last weekend I got the kids a gingerbread house kit (seriously who has the time to make that stuff from scratch?). They were super excited.....not so much to make it but rather to eat as much candy in the process. Alex was over and got to help too. The fun thing about this years gingerbread house was that we made it on Saturday and ate in on Monday. Usually we don't ever eat them, they just sit around as a decoration during the holiday season and then get chucked in the trash come New Year. Not this year! We gobbled that sucker down yesterday and it was delish! Might just have to be a new tradition.
