We like to include the animals in our holiday fun. Maya (black dog), Annie (brown dog), and Twister (chestnut horse) do a great job putting up with dress up time around the holidays. We haven't gotten the cats to join in yet, but maybe we'll make some progress for next year!
Every year we take a family photo in our elf uniforms. We took this year's on Thanksgiving when we had all that beautiful snow, and Jessie and Crescent (and Maya) were home. We won't get to see them for Christmas, so we felt very lucky to have them up for Thanksgiving week.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas.
