We have an elf that showed up on December 1st! Her name is Elf Sally and she came with some gifts for Cole and Cate on her first morning.
They got fun Christmas headbands, Peeps candy, and Cole got a "light saver" and Cate got "princess bubble bath".
Elf Sally has visited every morning since and sometimes brings candy. We don't really respect the no touching rule for poor Sally. Cate likes to carry her around in the mornings and give her some hugs. :)
