Tradition Tuesday

We are so excited for our first annual

Have Yourself a Very Swoony Christmas event,

Traditions are what really make the holidays memorable!

Each Tuesday we will be posting about some of our

favorite Christmas traditions.

Katie will be posting about one of her family's

favorite traditions for Week 4.


This is a newer tradition for many families
and maybe somewhat controversial,
but my grandma started something with her kids over 65 years ago
and it's stuck with us.
We do an "old-fashioned" version of the Elf on the Shelf.
Each night, the elf hides in a new spot to watch for naughty and nice behavior
in the children who live in the house.
It's always fun to go looking for the elf each morning.
He doesn't do wild and crazy things, he just quietly watches.
It's also fun to leave a little Christmas note with the elf.
The elf that comes to our home on the day after Thanksgiving
is named Sparky and he goes back to the North Pole with Santa
on Christmas Eve night. It's such a fun tradition for all of us!
