Last year our boys received the infamous "Elf on the Shelf" just a few days prior to Christmas. It was a gift from their grandparents and they definitely enjoyed his antics. For the past few days, I have been trying to think how "Jingle Bam" would return but also wanted to remind them about the true meaning of Christmas as we've had our fair share of bickering, whining, and so forth lately. So, last night they watched the "Elf on the Shelf" show on television and my husband said that the elf better return soon.
Apparently, our toys decided Jingle Bam needed a chartered jet from the North Pole.
He brought back plenty of snow to get us in the holiday mood!
That sneaky little elf even made a Welcome Back sign with his favorite treat.
Jingle Bam also brought a letter to Santa reminding us all about the best Christmas gift ever, the birth of baby Jesus and how he wanted us to remember all about showing God's love this holiday season. He also reminded our boys that they were very special and that sometimes Jingle Bam gets into trouble but God and his Elf parents still love him very much!
Needless to say, the excitement was overwhelming this morning. The boys were running up and down the stairs saying "Jingle Bam is back". Oh, how I love the magic of the holidays!
