The kiddos loved their note from Elfred yesterday which spurred many conversations today about becoming pen pals with him when he’s back at the North Pole. That’s a very clever idea, should I remember to do that. Might keep my kids on their best behavior year round if they get notes every now and then. Hmm.
Also, a word of caution from yesterday’s elf adventure, while the name is elf on the shelf, the elf requires more than a two inch base to sit securely on. So, really, his name should be elf on a large shelf because Elfred’s got back (get it? Like “baby’s got back”). I crack myself up.
So tonight Elfred decided to hang in the pantry. Not too exciting, but he insusted upon dragging toilet paper with him in case he got cold (and to help the kids find him). Not nearly as creative as my friend who wrapped her tree or had her elf go gangnam style with monster high dolls, but oh well. The big reveal will happen tomorrow.
