Our Elf teaches us about Jesus!

He's back!!!
That's right, our elf, Christopher Popinkins has returned.
We love the take we have taken on the popular "Elf on the Shelf" for our Elf to point us to the true meaning and gift God gave us at Christmas. 
You may remember some of our Elf's shenanigans last year and how they all pointed to Jesus, or giving, or scripture here and here
 Well, this year is no different and in the few days and we have found our Elf:
Making a Happy Birthday Jesus Puzzle
 Reminding us to Let our Light Shine before our friends
 Looking at a manger scene
And reminding us to give to those in need. 
Christopher Popinkins left us all sort of things to make bags for the people Kaitlyn sees on the streets holding signs that say the need help. 
We packed snacks, socks, toiletries, flashlights and lots more to give to those in need.

 We can't wait to see what our Elf has in store next! We love making this month meaningful and pointing this "season" all to the "reason" we celebrate....the babe wrapped in cloth, laying in the manger.. the Savior of the world and of our hearts!!! Praying you take time with your little ones to adore Him!
