I like the silliness, the creativity, and watching his eyes light up when he discovers the crazy things his elf has been up to. But I wanted to do something more positive, still silly, but with a purpose (and we all know every activity needs to be educational in our house). So his elf arrived with a letter stating he and P will be taking part in “Operation Cheer”. Continue reading
