Also, our elf has never seemed to move around a lot. He kinda likes to get in one good spot and stay there. When my kids question this, I tell them it's because they have been so good that he doesn't have much to report back to Santa.
And he has NEVER done anything fun like I see on Pinterest. He just sits. And watches. It's kinda creepy, really.
This is the year that all changes, folks! I am about to be THAT mom! Yes-siree, I am. I will over-achieve with my Elf on the Shelf this year. And I will take pictures of it. And I will put it on facebook. And I will blog about it. And I will ignore the eye rolls and snickers I get from you whilst I'm doing it. (I won't, however, ignore Snickers, capital S, that I get from you. Those, I love.)
So, tonight's the night Eff comes to our home. And he comes bearing gifts. I shamelessy copied word for word and idea for idea from this creative mom right down to the free stationary she used from here. But no matter, it's the thought, right?
|Here is Eff with his goodies from the North Pole|
|Here is the letter he brought with instructions from Santa.|
|He brought us some snow from the North Pole. (It's actually flour...shhhh)|
|And our magic seeds. I meant to buy Christmas tree sprinkles, but forgot. Guess I'm an under-over-achiever!|
Stay tuned for more elf awesomeness!!!
(SPOILER ALERT...After they plant the seeds, it will grow into Christmas cookies)
