Doodle was back this year and waiting on the mantle with a message written with Scrabble tiles that said "Hi Emma and Josh." They were so excited to see Doodle again this year although they didn't seem too threatened by the fact that he was reporting back to Santa every night. Josh could not wait to seek out Doodle first thing every morning and I think Doodle had lots of fun at the house. Emma also had an Elf at school named Candy and Josh had one named Nick. We didn't get too many photos of Doodle's antics this year but one morning, we found him like this.
The kids were sad to see him leave on Christmas but he does have some important work to do getting toys made for next year!
