After every Thanksgiving we watch Elf as a family, and my cousin @emilia_quill looks forward to this tradition all year. It's the kickoff of our Christmas season. She is the ultimate Elf fan.
  1. The montage set to the song Pennies from Heaven
    Her favorite song in the movie + "Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee!"
  2. "Your father...he's on the naughty list" "NOOOO"
    One long extended laugh/smile that peaks at the line, "But the children LOVE the books"

    My personal favorite line❤️
