Elf on the Self: 2012- Part 1


Well- the newest member of the Ho household has arrived! 

Elf Norman Baggins Ho arrived to us from the North Pole yesterday, December 15! 

Norman weighs in at 20 grams and is 13.5 inches long. 

Matt and I had put our adoption papers in a while ago and have been waiting around to get our newest member from the North Pole. 

We didn't know if we were eligible for adoption because we were childless, but Santa assured us that our 2 member family would be perfect for a scouting elf from the North Pole. 

Matt and I went to Target yesterday to get some shopping done, and when we returned Norman was waiting for us in the car!

Norman told us (he can talk to adults, just not children) there was a mix up in the North Pole and he ended up getting stuck in traffic! He also assured us that it was okay for us to have North Pole Elf even though we didn't have children because Santa still looks after us to see if we have been naughty or nice!

Each night, Norman returns to the North Pole to report to Santa and then he comes back to watch over us. Norman's purpose is also to remind us the true reason of the season and to remember to be kind to one another. The fun thing about Elves from the North Pole is each night they find a new favorite spot in the house and hang out there. 

Matt and I were curious to see what type of places Norman could find in our small apartment and he did not disappoint. 

When we woke up this morning, Matt and I saw Norman on my laptop. It looks like he wanted to make his adoption official. He registered himself with the North Pole and completed his adoption certificate. 

I am glad he was kind enough to take care of all the paperwork! 

Stay tuned to see what else Norman gets into the next few days. 

Don't worry, Matt and I aren't crazy. We just wanted to have a fun tradition and I couldn't wait to have kids to do it. 

And if you haven't heard of this tradition you need to check it out!
