Just like a kid again...

Edited on 12/31/2011: Joining Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors for our favorite Christmas Stories! I know this is from 2010 but it will always remain a favorite of mine.

See this jolly man here!? I have to say he is the best ever!! I went to a local toy/candy shop up the road from us on the hunt for The Elf on the Shelf. The boys had been talking about it and thus I decided we should get them one. I was not sure I would be able to find one this late in the game but thankfully the toy shop had one. While I was checking out I noticed Santa was visiting and thought how much the boys would have loved that. I purchased our new Elf friend and got back in the car with Oldest and Littliest who were still sleeping. The Hubster ran into another shop in the same shopping center and by the time he came back out I knew I had to go back to the toy shop and ask Santa to pose with our new Elf friend. I knew the boys would just love to know our new Elf friend came from Santa himself! 

 Let me tell ya y'all this man definitely knows how to warm any body's heart!! Not only did Santa pose in the shop for me he said he wanted to go out to the car and see if the boys had woken up and if not I could take a pic of him peeking in the car!! I must say I was thrilled as could be and felt like a little kid again myself! I was grinning from ear to ear!

The boys never did wake up while Santa was out there but thanx to Santa we have a wonderful story to cherish and remember year after year! Thanx Santa for having such a warm heart full of holiday cheer and thanx for "Elfie" our new friend! 

P.s If there is a little one you would like to send a personalized Santa video to go check out the Portable North Pole site!! I did this last year for the boys and they loved it! Just finished this years. Even better is that it is FREE!


  1. That is awesome!!! What a nice guy Santa is!!

  2. How sweet, Pamela! With the sun shining behind him that way in the picture, it looks like he just magically appeared or is getting ready to disappear.

  3. Oh my gosh how cute Pamela! I'm smiling ear to ear:)

  4. Oh wow! Santa is the best!! Gotta love him.

  5. That is so neat! I can't believe they didn't wake up!

    We have been having fun with our elves here. They came last year and then they came back last weekend. This am, the boys woke up to find all the stuffed reindeer had been playing games w/ Jingle and Jangle on the coffee table, but when they heard someone waking up in the middle of the night, J&J flew up to hide in the overhead light!

    I've been taking pics of all their hiding places - need to get those up on the blog or fb or something....

  6. That is so special! What a great Santa and a great story for the boys! Awww, those sweet little sleeping heads!

  7. Cool. My grandson just got an "Elfie" -- now all he needs is a Santa!

  8. we were over there last weekend, he is a very nice Santa!
