Hello again! You may have noticed that my spotlight on ornament nine is a day late. My apologies. This weekend has been rather busy. My church had their annual Pancakes with Santa breakfast which was so much fun. My family and I also managed to visit Gaylord Opryland to see the lights and decorations. The traffic was crazy, and the crowds were crazier, but I have to admit, it was totally worth it. Opryland has gotten new lights since my last visit, and it was gorgeous. If you have never been to see the Christmas decor at Opryland and you are driving distance to the Nashville area, you must go at least once! I'll post some pics below after the blog.
Today's ornament isn't really an ornament at all! It's a magical elf that watches over my nine year daughter to make sure she behaves extra nice during the month of December. And although she is not technically an ornament, we often find her on our tree involved in some sort of humorous shenanigan. As you can see from the pics above, she decided to hang upside down from the bottom of our tree. Doesn't the blood rush to her head??? She is a spry little thing. Our elf, Gumdrop Lollipop, arrives every year on Thanksgiving to get settled before December hits. She usually leaves on New Year's Eve, waiting a week after Christmas Day just to make sure none of the gifts from Santa were defective. How about you? Does your family have an Elf on the Shelf? What is your elf's name and when does he/she arrive?
