Christmas Stuff

We had the elf come to our house for the first time this year. We've just been calling him Elf because I felt bad naming him, and Nora doesn't understand that concept yet. She loves finding him each morning and calls him Sneaky Elf.

 He brought her a new Christmas dress to wear for all our special occasions. I literally have to hide it because she wants to wear it every single day.

She adores Santa and was so excited to see him at our ward Christmas party. She waited patiently in her seat and watched him visit all the other kids until he got to us. I wasn't sure if she'd love him as much in real life but she did. Darin said he could tell she was nervous because her little heart was beating so fast.

But she took her candy cane and even sat on his lap for a picture.

I can't believe how fast December has gone. Christmas is only a week and a half away. I can't wait to see her sweet little face on Christmas morning.

What ways do you help your young children understand the true meaning of Christmas? How do you incorporate Christ into your Holidays?
