Sparkles Our Elf

This December we had a new member join our family...Sparkles the Elf.

The girls were so excited when she showed up.  

Hanna was pretty excited to see Sparkles riding around with Doc McStuffin

Sparkles reminding the girls to "Be Good"

Baby Potato Head was trying to help Sparkles out

Mmm....Sparkles was thirsty

Traffic jam!!

Sparkles had to get a game of Zingo in

Just hanging around

Telling Santa what she wants for Christmas

Sparkles loves books just like Caty and Hanna

Bubble bath time

Dashing through the snow. On a one-horse open sleigh

If they played Zingo they have to play Topple

Sparkles brought the girls from Christmas books 

Sparkles hanging out on my favorite Christmas decoration

Playing Peek-a-boo

Someone got themselves stuck in the entertainment center

Sparkles is hiding

Thought she'd take a ride with the family on our Sea World Ornament

Left the girls a note

Time to bake some cookies

The girls were sad to say goodbye to Sparkles but are already looking forward to her returning next December
