Elf on the Shelf Time?

Christmas/ Elfie

Truth be told I got a bit fed up of Elf on the shelf last year, I got fed up with them on Instagram, on people’s blogs and most of all I got fed up of having to find a compromising position for him every single night.

So I wonder to myself whether I can actually be arsed this year or not. The kids have come to expect it really,  they have already asked when Elfie will be coming back.

For Boo it has been magical, she’s absolutely loved it, it has mainly just gone over Bugs head for the last 2 years but he is just at that age now where it will become amazing for him too so it looks like I’m stuck with bloody Elfie again this year.

Elfie usually comes around 1 December and he sits on a shelf in our living room all day everyday and then overnight he gets up to his mischievous antics and sometimes he will leave a message,  sometimes he will leave a treat, sometimes he leaves a mess and sometimes he is still sitting where he was left… (When Mummy has had too much to drink and forgot about him lol) Daddy can usually be convinced to get up early and go find somewhere to put him in those circumstances.

Elfie stays right up until 23 December,  on that night he leaves the children a letter to say is going back to the North Pole he also leaves them their Christmas Eve hamper which usually contains a pair of Christmas pyjamas each, a nice Christmas book, a Christmas mug and everything you need to make hot chocolate, a few sweeties and a Christmas DVD as well just to get them really excited and in the Christmas spirit.

It is a really really lovely experience for the kids and for that reason I am going to continue Elf on the shelf this year I may not post everyday on Instagram as I have done for the last couple of years because I think it can be quite irritating but the one thing that comes out of it all is that we are all doing it for our kids, to bring magic into their lives and make them happy and that makes me really warm and happy.

Another week with crazy Elfie!

Christmas/ Elfie

A couple of weeks ago a little Elf arrived to stay with us until Christmas; Boo named him Elfie and sat him on a shelf! From this shelf he watches the kids throughout the day to make sure they are being good! Each night he returns home to the North Pole to tell Father Christmas all about their behaviour When he returns he gets up to all kinds of mischief and each morning the kids find him somewhere different! For the last two weeks I have been recording his travels in pictures… This is what Elfie has been getting up to for the last week and you can see his previous travels here.
