Twas the week before Christmas.

And in the town of Paradise, the elf on the shelf wasn’t being very nice.

He tiptoed downstairs with some wrapping paper and glue.

He makes mischief and messes.

Not quite a role model.

Just look at that sweet tooth.

But big brother Zach knows this elf is not a toy.

He’s Rockwell, his brother.

Yes, he’s a real boy spreading the magic of the season with a little help from his pop.

And the magic of photoshop.

Rockwell sees you when you’re sleeping, tells Santa if you’ve been nice.

His pictures are so popular online, people shared and shared twice.

Strangers from all over the world clicking photos of this kids.

But this family has had a taste of what it’s like to spread joy.

Look who’s next to Rockwell.

Do you recognize that boy?

That’s Will.

He can fly.

His pictures, proof that kids with down syndrome can soar.

These photos all taken for one simple reason, to share the love this family shows, no matter the season.

And for the two youngest kids, it’s a love that never ends.

Life’s not always picture perfect.

But one thing is clear, you don’t have to wait until Christmas to feel this kind of cheer.
