The rest of Buddy's visit!

Finally showing down long enough to post the rest of our new friend's visit! The boys LOVED having Buddy around....once they adjusted to him. :)

Just as I stated in the previous post, some of these are straight copies of pictures I found on Pinterest, others are ideas that I tweaked to fit our family, and a few are my own original late-night-gotta-move-the-elf ideas. 

The pictures are terrible...from my phone. Ugh. My camera that I took in to be fixed in September STILL isn't fixed. But let's not talk about that touchy subject. Let's just move right on to the pictures, shall we?

Buddy opened a present a few days before Christmas. To the boys, this is a HUGE no-no. They know that any gift opened before time will be returned. We decided since Buddy didn't know that rule, we would forgive him and have a game night. :)

Hiding in the *jungle*.

Peek-a-boo, I see you! Buddy left the boys a message telling them that he was playing peek-a-boo with them...and when they found him, they would get a sweet surprise. Hot chocolate!

*snowball fight* with Santa Claus. I was afraid all night that our dog would eat the marshmellows so I set the alarm to get up before the boys to make sure she didn't and then went back to bed. Ha! :)

After spending the whole previous day baking and decorating sugar cookies, the boys found Buddy sitting on top of one of the cookie tins...with a guilty cookie smile.

Movie Night! Gabriel was amazed that Buddy ate all of the popcorn. "That's a lot of popcorn for a little guy!" :) Buddy left the movie at our house for the boys to watch thata afternoon.

Swinging from the ceiling fan!! They actually left him up there all day.

Christmas Eve morning. Buddy reminded the boys of the real reason for the season. He left them a note that told how much he loved being at our house and how fun they are. He also told them about Jesus and how much He loves us all and how He watches over us every day.
We were all sad to see Buddy go. I had just as much fun (if not more!!) than they did. We can't wait to see him again next year!
