After Christmas I spent some time on Shutterfly putting together a photo book of our Christmas Elf’s adventures this year. Dylan was sad to see Christopher Pop-In-Kins leave. Our photo book arrived a few days ago and now he has a fun reminder to enjoy year round.

    That was too cute! Way cuter than the traditional elf on the shelf.

      Thanks! Credit for the elf goes to my mom - she found him and shipped him to Dylan.

    Sarah that is such a great idea. I love it! Still deciding on whether or not we'll do the Elf but this book makes me lean towards yes! :)

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
