Ollie will arrive in our home on 12th.  If you want to join the Elfcapades with me all you have to do is buy a travel ticket and Santa will send you your own elf.  You can even request a boy or a girl elf.

Santa has an abundance of elves that have finished their toy-making duties early.  He is willing to foot the bill for the travel ticket for one IC reader. Blonde haired Johnny needs a home.  Who wants a Magic Elf?

  1. OUr tradition by the way is having appetizers on the floor Christmas eve and opening one present. I am sure this elf could help gear up my four kiddos.

  2. We've kind of fallen into the tradition of decorating gingerbread houses every year and the kids really love it.

  3. I have been looking for this for a while now! Thanks for the story and the chance to have a little elf magic in our home!

  4. One of our favorite holiday traditions is our annual Candy Cane Hunt. Each child is given a specific color of candy canes to find. The candy canes are hidden out in the yard (the older you are the harder it is to find them!) along with 1 big peppermint stick. We search until they are all found and then come in for canes and cocoa-the finder of the pepermint stick gets to open the first present on Christmas Eve! I hope we do this forever!

  5. We have a gifts for Jesus box where we write notes of kind things we do through the month and read on Christmas morning. My kids LOVE it!

  6. We have an annual Bronner's shopping trip (Bronner's is the largest Christmas store in the world-open year round) where each family member picks out a new ornament for the tree. When the kids get big and move out they get to take they're "lifetime" of ornaments with them so their first Christmas tree isn't bare and each one will bring back memories.

  7. I read the elf magic tradition- love it! Sounds like so much fun! And Elf Johnny would be perfect for us (my oldest son is the 6th "John" in a row for my husband's family) 🙂

  8. My personal Christmas tradition is to watch It's a Wonderful Life on Christmas eve, but I haven't yet been able to get the husband, 3 yr old, or 18 month old interested 🙂 this year I want to start a tradition of making ornaments that somehow incorporate the kids handprints.

  9. OK, I love the Elf story. I love that they focus on old-fashioned Christmas fun that doesn't take away from the real reason we celebrate!

  10. Weren't we just talking about the elves 2 days ago? We'd love an elf for our home! I've read the story, visited the site more than once and just haven't ordered yet, but it's still on my list of things to get!

  11. I love Christmas traditions and can't wait to start more with my new growing family! We do the traditional things now, tree up on black friday, advent, cookie baking day, new ornament for the year, etc. One of my favorites that we have carried on since my childhood is a Polish tradition passed on through my family. We break Oplatki (like breaking bread) and give everyone with us blessings and wishes for the following year.

  12. My favorite Christmas tradition is driving around and seeing all the lights and displays. Not nearly enough people decorate as much as they use to. Its a pity!

  13. I think my kids would love one of these. I have a friend that's been posting pictures of their Elf on FB and their Elf made a "snow angel" in sugar on the counter. Super cute.

    I think for the family activity I would like to make salt dough ornaments or sugar cookies. 🙂

  14. I just read the "Elf Magic Tradition." I had never heard of it before, but it sounds like something really fun to implement with our kids!

  18. My children are infants, but I can't wait for them to help me decorate the tree! It's my favorite activity, so I'm sure it will be even MORE fun (if that's possible) with little helping hands!

  22. Thanks for filling me in on the Elf Magic Tradition. Our family has been missing out. We'd love one of our very own.

  23. Love Ollie and all his adventures last year. Especially the fan episode. We have several traditions in our family around Christmas time. Advents, nativities, lights this would be a fun addition with the grandkids.

  24. We always drive around after Christmas mass and look at all the Christmas light displays. It's usually snowing just a little bit, so it's pretty magical.

  33. I read the store. How sweet. I would love to have this little elf. We are starting some great traditions with the three 5 year old children that we adopted. They are very magical this Christmas. I think this would be a wonderful part to our family traditions.

  34. These are adorable! I would love to add this to our traditions every year. I just read Elf Magic Tradition 🙂
    Thank you for the chance to win one of these cuties!

  35. My babies are still young, but this year we are starting a new tradition, making Gingerbread Nativity sets. I bought the kit earlier in the year, and can't wait to use it!

  36. I read the tradition, and am copying your ideas right now! I LOVE how you told about the story of CHRISTmas! It's so important! We are giving only 3 presents for each kid this year and years to come, because Jesus received 3 gifts from the 3 wisemen!

  37. My family is German, so my favorite tradition was celebrating St. Nicholas Day on December 6th. I'll definitely carry on the tradition with my kids.

  38. Our holiday traditions consist of Activity Advent Calendar, Baking, Making ornaments, and Making home made Christmas gifts! =)

  39. One of my favorite holiday activities is the yearly visit to "Christmas Village." It's this huge park nearby that is completely decked out for the holiday. We love seeing all the lights and decoration!
