Elf On The Shelf - An Introduction

So my favourite time of year has finally arrived, the countdown to Christmas!
Having two young girls who are now old enough to fully understand Christmas this year, i decided to have as much fun as possible every single day so they can grow up to enjoy this magical time as much as i do.

Some of you have heard about 'The Elf On The Shelf' (if you haven't it explains everything here). This year i finally decided to start the tradition in my own family and we are already having so much fun.

Our Elf arrived with a fun North Pole breakfast for the girls on November 30th and together we decided to call our cheeky little elf, Buddy.

Buddy brought the girls custard and jam donuts, cups of hot chocolate and a cup of milk with candy canes (they made the milk turn pink!). They were also left a little bag full of North Pole treats including 'snowballs' to throw in their hot chocolate (mini marshmallows) a chocolate elf, a sherbet candy cane and a tin of mini chocolate Santas. They loved having such a fun breakfast while Mummy read 'The Elf On The Shelf' book.

I hope to be back blogging a lot more often now, especially about all the fun christmas activities and bargains i come up with.

Do you have any fun Christmas traditions in your house?
