This past Saturday our elf, Buddy, came back for the season and he brought his traditional North Pole Breakfast. ;)
Buddy REALLY enjoys decorating and making fun and pretty memories for Luke, Mason and Griffin ;)
Buddy always brings powdered sugar and chocolate donuts and he likes to make them festive with cute little toppers (ps - he may have picked up the red sparkley ones on a Valentine's clearance table) ;)
The little tree is from Griffin's room and this year he stepped it up with some snow balls, deco mesh and a Ruby Wrap as a topper.
All of the dishes are from Hobby Lobby in 2012 when this tradition started.
The kids came in and IMMEDIATELY changed into their PJS (sidenote - these are by Hanna Andersson and are the softest, best pajamas of all time. I snagged these on a clearance table last Spring - because I am crazy and think about Christmas stuff in May. hahaha)
Lots of jumping and squealing - and this was pre-sugar ;)
Each kid had a present at their place setting...
... a Christmas movie to add to our collection!
Griffin LOOOOOVES her some Princess Sofia ;)
Then it was time to CHOW!
Just a "few" marshmallows ;)
In the little gift boxes each of the kids got a special ornament from Buddy. He always picks something that represents the year and this year's ornament signified Luke's love affair with bacon ;)
Chef Mason got a mixer and little miss got a sparkly shoe.
This morning might be better than Christmas morning for me ;) I love the surprise, the excitement and the "magic" that comes with them thinking that Buddy brought the whole thing and set it all up for them. I will say - I definitely don't do this for the glory... because a plush elf gets all the credit, but I have an absolute blast setting it all up.
So, do y'all do elf on the shelf? Does he/she make a grand entrance???
Happy Thursday, peeps!
