North Pole Breakfast 2013

Buddy the Elf is back and, like last year, he brought a North Pole Breakfast with him for his inaugural morning :)

Buddy used the table runner that was already on the table (a fabric remnant from the boys Pirates, Pajamas and Pancakes Party) and brought back the dishes from last year...

They each received a letter from Buddy...

Buddy brought orange juice, donuts, strawberries, hot chocolate and marchmallows and vanilla yogurt with sprinkles...

There wasn't much room on the table for one set of presents, so Buddy stuck them in the Christmas tree (that he stole from Griffin's room)...

Each of the kids also got a new Christmas movie to watch this month! (Rudolph, Charlie Brown Christmas and The Grinch).

The boys came in and Luke immediately knew what was up :)

Of course we had to open the presents first...

... and munch on donuts while we unwrapped (I really think Mason ate about 7 donuts)...

This may be my favorite pic form the whole morning :)

Everyone opened their presents off of the tree... Snowman ornaments!!! :)

It was a super fun morning and a great "kick off" to our season with Buddy :)


  1. You always do THE BEST Elf breakfast! The very, very, very best! They should hire you at Elf on the Shelf :).

  2. I love this tradition! It's so wonderful! I might have to use it next year:)

  3. This is the most adorable and delicious-looking breakfast I've ever seen! What lucky kids to have such a generous elf! ;)

  4. What an adorable idea!!! The kids look so excited, how fun! You are such a great mama!!

  5. I love that you are so festive and fun with your family! Christmas is so magical through their eyes!!! :)

  6. I love it! You are so creative! Thanks for sharing. I would love for you to come check out mine as well.


  7. This is all so adorable! But can we take a moment and say Luke looks like a teenager in the photo of him coming around the corner in the kitchen!?!? I have been reading for a few months now, and I'm shocked out how much they have all grown!

  8. Buddy CLEARLY needs to open up a consulting firm at the North Pole. He needs to school our elf FOR SURE. Our elf is soooo last minute and does things like pop in the fridge with underwear wrapped around his shoulders to keep him warm. Tootie could learn a thing or two from your elf.
    Love you and your elf!

  9. How awesome is this... The cutest thing I have ever seen! The smiles on your kids' faces tell it all.

  10. You are seriously the coolest mom!!! I LOVE this idea and will be stealing it for next year. My little will be almost 3 next year and will hopefully really understand more what's going on. :)

  11. Um…HELLO!! You are SUPER MOM!!! So freaking amazing!!! I wanted to drop you (and all your blogging buddies) a note to tell you about where I grew up..SANTA CLAUS, IN!!!!! follow this link and your kids can send letters to Santa and they will get a reply back!! You can even send your christmas card to the post office back home and they will postmark them with the Santa Claus holiday design!! Just thought it was so you!!!

  12. OMG, LOVE THIS! Want to come decorate my house for Christmas? I'm okay that it's only May.

  13. WOW, this looks AMAZING!!!! I LOVE your dinnerware. Can I ask where they're from? xx
