Pottery is our special elf. He visited last year, but this year has really become part of our Christmas celebration. Each morning, M hops out of bed to find his hiding place. She is very worried about what he tells Santa and is working very hard to only have good daily reports. She wants to be on Santa's "good list." Last year, M wasn't very interested in naming him, but this year named him immediately. We're glad Pottery is part of our tradition and we're looking forward to many fun years ahead.
I have a very serious addiction to snowmen. Nothing says winter, warmth, welcome more than a sweet little ball of snowman goodness. Over the years, I've accumulated quite the collection of snowmen. I couldn't resist making a family of these precious little snowman heads last year. M and I enjoy making up stories about the antics of each little snowman.
