"Where's Chippy?" - The month of December with our elf.

Each morning we found Chippy in a new spot. I have to say.....our elf was very smart and stayed out of trouble. We wanted him to be a good example. Not only were we lucky enough to have Chippy visit us....but daddy also left us cute notes when he left for work.

Every morning started off with "Where's Chippy?!"

Here's pictures from our month with Chippy.

Chippy made his first appearance on the mantle.
The kids were excited he came to visit. Brayden was a little unsure...
but by the 2nd day he was fine with Chippy being at our house.

Day 24
We stayed the night at Nonnie & Grand-daddy's house. Chippy found us there. Brayden, Bailey & their cousin - Collin were excited to find Chippy hanging out on Nonnie & Grand-daddy's tree.
It's crazy how you can get attached to these things. I felt like he was real and really a part of our family. The kids are missing him already. They brought it up a couple times already...
"I miss Chippy."

This was our first year with Chippy and it was so much fun. Chippy wouldn't have been possible without the help of my wonderful husband. There were some nights I fell asleep on the couch....or nights I totally forgot to move him and Brandon picked up my slack. Talk about a good daddy!! :)'

I miss him already, too. Can't wait for the years to come with our Chippy. 
Until next year.

This was our first year too and I was surprised how much I looked forward to the kids seeing the elf each morning too! It will definitely be something to look forward to in years to come!
