It was sad to say goodbye to our Elf on the Shelf Buddy this year.
Last year I don't think Reagan even noticed he was gone but this year he did not want to see him go.
Here is the last of what we did together.
Reagan woke up to find Buddy sitting in one of his toy trucks.
Buddy left his usual note and some cake mix to us for a birthday cake for Jesus.
We baked Jesus a birthday cake to eat on Christmas Eve.
We also popped popcorn to take with us as we drove around looking at Christmas lights.
Reagan thought it was so much fun. It was our first time using this popper.
(I usually would only use it at school with my class.)
These next two photos crack me up.
It totally sums up my life with this 3 year old.
His response, "Accidents Happen".
So we popped a second batch to take with us.
Sunday morning Reagan woke up to find Buddy holding Baby Jesus.
He left Reagan a coloring page for him to work on.
Our activity that day was to go to my sister's house for our annual Gingerbread House party.
Here was Reagan's finished picture he left for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Monday morning Reagan woke up to find Buddy with a present that said to open that night.
He also left a little goodbye note for Reagan.
After church Reagan opened his gift from Buddy - new Christmas jammies for him and the babies.
Buddy has flown back to the North Pole!
We will seem him again next year and have lots of new, fun adventures!
