Elf Leaves Advent Calendars for the Kids!

It’s December 1st and Love Bug brought presents!

Each Little got their very own Lego Advent Calendar.

Usually I forget to give these out at the beginning of the month and they end up wrapped under the tree.  Good thing our elf is on top of things this year 😉

Usually Mama forgets to give these out on December 1st - good thing our elf isn't as forgetful ;)

Candy Cane Scavenger Hunt

Love Bug hid some candy canes around the living room while we slept and challenged the Littles to find them.

His one stipulation… that they “work together.”

Hmmm… looks like the Littles might need a lesson on teamwork 😉

Love Bug let us know that he was back and ready for some fun by leaving a toothpaste message for the Littles.

Elves Get Vacation Too

Love Bug had a few vacation days left to take before coming to stay with our family for the holidays.

He was kind enough to send the Littles a postcard…

Looking Back…

2013 will be the third year that our Elf on the Shelf, Love Bug, has visited our family.

As we get ready for another year of elf mischief and hijinks I thought it would be fun to look back at some of my favorites from last year.

Best of 2012 Elf Hijinks!  30+ ideas!!

Hi!

Remember me?

It’s been MONTHS since I sat down in front of the computer and posted here!

“Why?” you ask?

At the end of the summer we moved to the other side of the world!  That’s right – from Virginia ALLLLLL the way to Okinawa!

Talk about life changing!

The Littles have been worried that our Elf on the Shelf, Love Bug, wouldn’t be able to find us this year.

This is his response…
