This was the first Christmas that Delaney's elf, who she named Sparkle, came to watch her and visit during Christmas. After a nap one day the doorbell rang and there was Sparkle sitting on the box he arrived from the North Pole in. We had somewhat prepared her for his arrival and talked about an elf possibly coming to visit. She was pumped and a little nervous when she first saw him. She chose his name pretty quickly and I attempted to read the book to her that went with him. She really wanted to touch him and couldn't understand why she couldn't have him. Really I knew if I let her play with him he would be lost after the first day. So Sparkle stayed with us from right after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve when he left with Santa to go back to the North Pole. It was really fun and Delaney enjoyed finding where he moved to every morning.
