Henry, our elf on the shelf, is having a lot of fun around the house.
Kris has fun with it too :)
Can't believe he toilet papered our tree :)
How did he get up there?
Jacob really liked this one :)
Levi doesn't understand the whole don't touch the elf or he'll lose his magic, so we have to keep him out of his reach. We gave in and did this one, and sure enough, Levi was walking around holding Henry.
Luckily Jacob was at school otherwise his little world would have crumbled :)
Every morning after Jacob finds him, he always says he's such a silly elf :)
Thank goodness Christmas is close. Ideas are running thin around here :)
Thanks for humoring me ladies! I know most people hate games at parties, but this was fun :)
Here Leslie is trying to explain her drawing, it was so funny!
The winner received an ornament and gift card from hobby lobby. Emily (pink shirt) won! :)
Here are the Favorite Things I received :)
I technically didn't 'win' the nail polish, but Beth was kind enough to bring an extra :)
My favorite item that I gave was a package of Sharpie pens.
I had a lot of people who couldn't make it due to conflicting schedules or of sickness, so I think I might do another in the spring. You can host your own any time of the year, not necessarily just at Christmas.
Put this in your back pocket and remember the next time you want to invite some friends over :)
If you're on Pinterest (and if you're not I don't know why!) you've probably seen the North Pole Breakfast pin which welcomes back your Elf for the year. The talented lady behind this has some super-cute ideas, and I was excited to create my own version for the boys.
Henry, our elf, brought the boys a gingerbread cookie mix. Jacob was so excited!
He loves to help in the kitchen!
is this mailbox not the cutest!? i bought it last year after christmas on clearance for $.50 at Big Lots!
I found this cute little candy-cane pot at the Salvation Army this week for $1.25. I love a thrift store - never know what you'll find!
Inside are snowman-shaped marshmallows. The little elf is from Walmart.
