Elves Like Chocolate Too.

Buddy got into Aiden’s advent calendar and chocolate stash this morning!

But he saved today’s piece just for Aiden!

And another passive aggressive “list” reminder for Mommy.

Aiden’s reaction the Buddy eating his chocolate, summed up in a photo:

Elf Diary 3: Elf on the Swing?

Apparently Buddy got into my craft stash last night and made himself a swing using my ribbon, and a toilet paper roll!

Buddy also wrote Aiden (who has been EXTRA…ummm…three-year-old-ish the last few days) a note reminding him to be NICE! And to make a Christmas list so that Santa’s helpers…aka the Grandparents… will leave Mommy alone! πŸ˜‰

By the way, if you decide to try this one, you need some weight inside the TP roll to counter the weight of the elf’s head. These seashells worked perfectly, and Aiden couldn’t see them from his angle.

Elf Diaries: Day 2

I’m not sure if Aiden was more concerned about the fact that Buddy colored on his face, or the fact that Buddy was holding Mommy’s markers. (Aiden isn’t allowed to touch them after a certain hallway wall re-decorating fiasco.) Either way, day two was successful…so far!

Elfin’ Around.

Our Elf on the Shelf “arrived” this morning. He brought candy, a letter from Santa, and a book to introduce himself!IMG_8239

SOOOO blurry, but I couldn’t help but post the reaction.

Why yes, Santa-Mommy did make up this poem very quickly late last night. (It was a hit-Go me!)

And, our elf FINALLY has a name. Buddy is officially a (creepy-ish) member of the family.

I may not post every day in December, but I will post every day’s elf shenanigans. Not sure if Aiden is more excited, or if I am! πŸ™‚

 

Turkeys, Indians, & Elves.

Ok, I suck at posting daily. I WILL at least do weekly for the rest of 2013. Here are some updates from November.

DIY/Craft Turkeys with my art class (It was a big hit…they are ages 3-5):

Our (currently nameless)Β Elf on the Shelf moves in Sunday! I’ll be sure to update on all of the shenanigans he gets into around here starting Monday.

 

Have suggestions for “Elf Shenanigans?” Or even a name suggestion? Comment below!

 

 

 

Otherwise, have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
