Buddy returned this weekend for his second year of being our scout elf. Becca was concerned he might come to life and eat her brains (wha—-?) but then after we re-read his book she is convinced he is kind, but still won’t speak to him. Elizabeth on the other hand will not stop talking to him about her toys, things she wants, questions about Santa…
Which reminded me I have this layout about Buddy that I’d created for Tim Holtz (CHA-Summer) that I have yet to share:
Our house rule is that you can hold/kiss/hug Buddy ONCE on the day he arrives, and again on Christmas day before he goes back to the North Pole. But you’re not allowed to touch him otherwise (per the book). Sometimes Buddy forgets to move (whoops) – we think it’s that he forgets where he had been parked or just really likes a specific spot.

lol 🙂 Buddy made his appearance here this morning, too 🙂 Buddy is just the perfect name for him, isn’t it. Can’t help, but think of Elf. I don’t have the cute scrapbook page for him tho. I’ll have to see what I can do to change that after this sub job is up in 3 weeks!
My son gets so disappointed when Elfy forgets to move over night. I usually think that Elfy is just to tired to make the trip to the North Pole that night;-)
Ohhhh he is soooooo cute, that is the one I have been wanting but price of postage to NZ is horrendous.. Love your LO
Great LO May … you’ll have to tell me more about this tradition
