EOTS: Day 8

Jingle decided to see what it would be like to walk around in Daddy's shoes.

His opinion....these work boots were made for walking!

EOTS: Day 7

Anytime there are movies or nightly TV being watched at our house, Buddy almost always has some popcorn to go along with it.

Jingle picked up on this, and this morning we found him in "Daddy's Chair" eating "pine-corn" (as Quinn used to call popcorn).  He even had the remote, and was watching Toy Story Part 2 when we woke up today.

EOTS: Day 6

Quinn's new chore to help around the house is to get Dixie's 3 scoops of dog food for her breakfast and supper.

Jingle decided to hide in the pantry today...took Quinn quite a while to find him. I eventually had to give him some clues.

EOTS: Day 5

Quinn loves to play Candy Land....or as he calls it "CandyCane Lane Land".  He was quite thrilled when he saw Jingle, and 3 of his sleepy time snuggle friends, Monkey, Elephant, and Patty (the Penguin...Quinn always calls them Patty) had played a midnight game!  It's a little hard to tell, but if you look at the picture, each friend is holding a picture card, showing where they were on the board. Jingle had the cinnamon roll so he must be winning!  Quinn couldn't figure out how Jingle got his friends out of bed and out to the living room.  I guess that is the "elf magic" at work!

EOTS: Day Three

Yesterday our family went to the local Christmas Parade. Jingle made friends with the ChickFilA Cow and they both got into the candy.  I think Jingle even has sugar on his face!

EOTS: Day Two

Jingle must have been hungry when he got home this morning.  He got into all the Froot Loops. He even showed his smarts by spelling Quinn's name with the pieces of cereal!

And I realized after I took the picture that Quinn and Jingle had the same expression on their faces!

EOTS: Day One

Getting to know our family and making that first trip home to the North Pole must have been hard for Jingle, because he only made it to Jacob's swing when he returned.

Quinn thought it was hilarious that Jingle was sleeping in Jacob's swing!

A Thanksgiving Night Visitor

Tonight we had a late visitor for Thanksgiving. We heard a knock at the door, and when we opened it, this is what we saw.

This little guy was holding a note that said:

After reading the book, Quinn decided to name his little friend Jingle.  Our book taught us that Jingle has been sent by Santa to watch out to see if Quinn and Jacob are being good boys. Each night he will return to the North Pole to give a report, but will return by the next morning. He might be in a different spot, so we will have to find him each day.  On Christmas Eve, he will return home to the North Pole and we will see him next year.

Here is Quinn and Jingle.  And the most special rule of all....NEVER TOUCH or his Elf Magic goes away.
