Christmas Fairy

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Edge house. I spent mosst of November unpacking and therefore didn't get to decorate for Thanksgiving so I am making up for it now! I am so excited to be able to continue our traditions in our new house. Merritt has her pink feather tree and her advent snowman, but one tradition we will not continue is Elf on the Shelf. Elf caused lots of problems for us last year, so we asked him to pack his stuff and find another family to spy on.
This year we welcomed the Chritmas Fairy... she is lovely. She doesn't mess up your house, she doesn't 'watch' you to see if you do anything wrong and she does not report directly to Santa.
She brings a Christmas book for you to open and read each night.
Merritt has been excited to unwrap her book each night, unlike last year when she was terrified to close her eyes because the elf was watching her.
It was to cute the first night when she opened her book and told Beau that she already had that book. All of the 25 books are books she already had :)
I hope to keep this tradition going as Merritt and Ross get older. I think it is a nice way to countdown to Chritmas, by snuggling up with a good book.

  1. Yup we don't do the elf either. Blue would probably have same reaction. Love the book idea! Hugs!
