We decided that we would start a new tradition the Saturday after thanksgiving. Our Elf on the Shelf would introduce himself by bringing the boys a North Pole style breakfast!
I have gone back and forth with elf on the shelf and decided that it would be fun. I like the idea of him bringing lots of fun Christmas activities for my boys to do. I'm excited to see how they like it. Since Owen was hospitalized the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we had to wait until we got home. Elf on the Shelf was postponed for a week but it actually turned out great. We got snow that Saturday morning so it was like he brought the North Pole weather with him!
Although, it would have been nice if we didn't lose power. We had no heat and no lights lol.
Here was the table the night before, all ready for the boys in the morning.
Elf, front and center
North Pole snow (powdered) donuts
The boys had snowman plates and Santa cups. Elf also brought them a present in a "gingerbread" house
Marshmallows for hot chocolate
In the morning, the boys woke up early because it was so cold in their room. The electricity went out in the middle of the night. Because the electricity went out, we weren't able to make hot chocolate so we made chocolate milk instead.
The boys were so excited to see everything set up on the table.
Isaiah was very excited about his christmas plate!
But Owen was most excited about all the snow outside!
Our elf sure knows Owen - cheerios are a must every morning!
Owen wasn't too into eating all the sweets . . . but he liked playing with them!
