North Pole Breakfast {Welcome back, Henry!}

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.
 
I thought these santa picks were cute!
 
Yummy donuts!
 
And reindeer donuts :)  Idea found here
 
I found this cute elf scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby, and Henry used it to write a letter to both the boys :)
 
It's kinda hard to read vellum :)
 
Oh, and the cheap chair covers are from Deals.
I got the cute stocking lights from Big Lots last year for $1. 
If you can't tell, I love to shop after the holiday for the next year.
 
The sweet smiles on their face is the very reason why I do this. 
 

 
 
 
I just love creating these sweet memories with my boys!

You're so creative! LOVE this!! I just stuck our elf up in a tree on the table and said, "oh look! an elf!" hahaha... I have to admit the whole elf thing creeps me out a little but the boys did think it was fun and I think it will be fun to find him in a new spot every day :). And, our boys named him "Bob"...as in "bob, the builder." Awesome.

This is obviously MUCH more creative and festive :). Thanks for sharing!!

Kimberley- this is so fun!! I'm totally jealous of your creativity. I'm with Jenny- mine just gets stuck up on a shelf and Logan gets excited just to find it every day.
Yours is so much more fun!

What a sweet idea! I wish I had been at the breakfast--yum!! I may have to steal your cuteness and do a North Pole Breakfast later in the month. I always love seeing your boys too--their smiles really are precious!

Look how awesome this is! I've got to let Oscar know he needs to step it up a little bit next year when he makes his return. :)
