|Our kids with Twinkle Bear, about 12 years ago|
This was back before the Elf began sitting on the Shelf in other people's homes. In fact, Twinkle Bear and The Elf are great friends, and often they share the same travel arrangements to and from the North Pole each evening. But the Elf always visits other homes, and that's just fine with us because Twinkle Bear has been our friend for a very long time.
Here are some of the places that we have found Twinkle Bear after his long journey back to us from the North Pole. We used to find him in bed with our kids a lot, but now he seems to enjoy settling in to more comfortable places, or more mischievous ones!
|In a comfy arm chair|
|Or a different comfy arm chair|
|Resting above the TV|
|On the front stairs|
|Playing on the stair bannister|
|Chatting with the deer|
|Waiting for someone to make him some microwave popcorn|
|Eating all of the candy out of my centerpiece!|
|Under the tree|
|Even IN the tree!|
|He likes to sit here by Santa|
|Uh oh, he's hanging from the chandelier again!|
Twinkle Bear is certainly a valued member of our Christmas time family. Do you have a tradition like this in your family?
