We have an elf that lives with us during Christmas. His name is Pickles. We woke up this morning and found him on our tree ready for fun.
Pickles is a little mischievous. While everyone is sleeping he likes to play tricks and in the morning we never know where we might find him. But if the kids have been really naughty - not that my kids are ever naughty - he just stays on the tree. And if someone has gone above and beyond and has been really good sometimes they might wake up and find Pickles on their bedside table or somewhere close by.
On the morning of Christmas Eve Pickles disappears only to come back later that night with a gift for the kidlets that they can open that night.
Here are the kidlets with Pickles on Christmas Eve of last year.
We spent Christmas with my sister last year and even her son Josh got his picture with Pickles.
