Hey y'all! How was your Wednesday? Mine was VERY long! Kambree woke up with an upset stomach and we decided to keep her home. She spent the day with her Grandma and she seems to be feeling better. I had a busy work day and got home after 8:30. I'm so glad to be working from home the next two days.
My former co-worker and dear friend, Julie, came to visit me and brought some gifts too. We visited a while and it was great to see her. She's a forever friend.
I thought that I'd take a few minutes to introduce you to our elf - Kambree calls him Elfie. We didn't intend to do the whole elf thing, but she was so excited that her school elf arrived. Also, one night Kambree and I were cuddled watching a Christmas movie and Kambree said very quietly - "I hope I don't get coal". Y'all! My heart couldn't take it, I just started pouring into her and telling her what a good girl that she is. So, we decided to roll with the elf and it's been so fun. David and I believe that she really is motivated to do well because of the elf.
I ordered this The Elf on the Shelf Plushee Pal for under $11. This doll doesn't have the ability to be posed, but I'm pleased with the quality. We decided that our elf would arrive December 1st. Kambree was heading out for the Dallas Christmas Parade with a friend that morning and I hung a new Christmas t-shirt in my bathroom and told her that we didn't know where it came from. She just knew that her elf left it and she wondered when she would get to see him. Here she is looking all cute in her Christmas Elfie shirt.
While she was gone for the day we put everything together. I wrote this letter.
