Brownie Stuff

One of my favorite family traditions came to live with us a few days ago. His name is Bernard. He's the special "Christmas Brownie" (tiny elf like creature) who lives with us from Thanksgiving until Christmas. He leaves all sorts of goodies while we are sleeping- but only if we're good. Then he reports back to Santa on our behavior.


Bernard came to live with us the year Jack and I got married. Jack mocks me for carrying on a tradition totally intended for children while we are currently childless... but tradition is important. (isn't it Tryon?) So here he lives. Take a peak at these sweet Christmas Mugs he left us the other day. Isn't he a sweetheart!


*The Christmas Brownie is a tradition that the Wilkerson's have had for years. My parent's currently house a Brownie name Darby O'Dee. My Dad grew up with a brownie and all his brothers families house Brownies as well. Don't you think YOUR family needs a Brownie too?

Brownies make Christmas fun for kids, but they are fun for grown ups too. Darby is part of the family and I am sure that Bernard will be too.

Could you see if your brownie has a friend who wants to come live at our house?
