Buddy the Elf!

Jordan has succeeded in life!!! His first big election win. He was officially voted "buddy the elf" for the High schoolers and got to fill all responsibilities that go along with it. (Picture the Grinch winning the holiday cheermiester award)
Yeah, so anywhoooo the last day Tradition at American Heritage involves all students bringing a Teddy to set under the tree.

Yes that is alot of Bears!!
Then, starting with Buddy the Elf of course, ALL the kids line up around the school as All bears are loved and hugged and passed along every child before being taken to less fortunate kids.

Now that's alot of love!!

I hope you taught him some of the most essential lines from the movie, so he'd be able to successfully fulfill his role:

"I just like to smile! Smiling's my favorite."

"I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands."

"First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle."

Please tell me you didn't send him off unprepared!
