North Pole Breakfast

I knew I wanted to do something fun for the return of our elf on the shelf, Buddy and was totally inspired by several "North Pole Breakfasts" that I saw on Pinterest. I decided to create my own version and had an absolute blast!

Buddy went ahead and brought enough supplies for Griffin as well - that way in years to come we're all coordinated :)

He had everything set up for the boys including cups of cocoa (complete with ice cubes to make it drinkable - hahaha - that Buddy thinks of everything!)

Buddy brought little donuts with Santa toppers for breakfast...

And "fixings" for hot chocolate including marshmallows and whipped cream...




When Luke walked in the kitchen he was ESCTATIC to see Buddy had returned (and brought with him four days worth of sugar) :)  So excited, in fact, that it warranted high-fives all around...

... and a little elf dance :)


We all sat down to read the notes Buddy had left for each of the boys:



After the notes we moved on to the little gifts that Buddy had at each of the boys place settings:

He brought them each an ornament and a pair of socks to keep their toesies warm

He brought Luke a "Rise and Shine" ornament (for all the days that he has to "rise and shine" for Pre-K, Mason a sandwich with a bite taken out of it since Mason's favorite word is "bite" (when he wants to take a bite of whatever you're eating) and popcorn tub for our new baby, Popcorn!) :)


After opening presents it was time for donuts!!!



And cocoa...

... and modeling our socks from the North Pole :)


I love Christmas and all the fun that comes along with the season.  I love getting to start fun traditions and memories that I hope my boys treasure half as much as I do :)

Buddy is sure to be up to some mischief in the next few weeks and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated!
