Elf on the Shelf
We started a new Christmas tradition this year, its called Elf on the Shelf.... to sum it up real quick, Santa sends a special helper down from the North Pole to watch over the kids during the month of December and each night the elf goes back to Santa to tell him if the child was naughty or nice. The kids can not touch the elf, and each morning when they wake up he/she is in a different spot in the house and he also loves to play tricks/jokes so he might be somewhere you would least expect him and or making a mess out of the toys.
To introduce the kids to their elf's Tanna and I did a North Pole Breakfast this morning. Tanna did a great job with the decorations and little goodie bags from the elf to each of the kids and I wrote little letters reminding them to be good, then Tanna read them the story that explained the Elf. I can not wait to do this every year with Colton, Addison, Bella and Evan! here are some pictures of our breakfast
