Benjamin's back.
I love this little guy.
If you recall, he is our version of Elf on a Shelf/Advent Calendar all rolled into one.
He hides somewhere new every morning and sometime brings presents!  
He brings holiday outfits and books.
This year we got:
Llama Llama Holiday Drama (LOVE this series!)
Fancy Nancy and the Splendiferous Christmas.

Every morning, she comes running into our room, either excited to find him or excited to tell us where he was.
Ellie is so enamored with him that I fear the day he gets packed away.

He has found some interesting spots to hide this year.

 Sometimes he is naughty.  Like the time he ate some cookies and left crumbs, or the time he buried himself in the clementines.  You can almost guarantee a present the day after he was naughty.
Thank you Benjamin.
Thank you for making Ellie's Christmas a little more fun.
Even if Mommy does wake up in a panic at 3 am due to forgetting to hide him...

How adorable! I didn't know there was a holiday Llama book--awesome. We love the original book. Also, your Time Out bench is totally cool.
