Ah the Elf.
Yes. We Have an Elf.
Elf on the Shelf.
6 Years and Going Strong. I thought we would have outgrown her, but not yet.
She has become a Christmas Family Tradition and that’s a Good Thing.
Guess You Never Outgrown Family Traditions.
Her Schedule is Short and Tight. She arrives Thanksgiving Morning with Advent Calendars.
On Christmas Eve She Waits on the Tree to Fly Back Home with Santa.
A One Month Gig.
She Has Reindeer Pets.
And Helps with the Countdown to Christmas.
She Leaves Christmas Sparkle Magic in her Wake.
The Sparkle is Collected in a special can and saved in case She needs it to Fly Back to the Pole.
It’s All About the Sparkle.
Throughout the Season She Brings tiny Gifts from the North Pole.
Sometimes things We Need…Warm Pajamas…Headphones for the reading group at school.
Or silly things too…Nutcracker Pens…Snow Globes.
And often Notes of Encouragement. Notes of Love.
She Has Jolly Good Times with the Christmas Decor. They Speak the Same Language.
Roasting Marshmallows over a Battery Candle with the Nutcrackers.
Lounging on the Doll Furniture.
She Hides in Crazy Places and the Morning Quest is to Find Her and the Reindeer.
Inside the Refrigerator. On the Tree.
This Year She is Staying Up High to Avoid Kitten Attacks. Hmmm.
Our Elf has a Very Diverse Wardrobe.
Fun Hats and Scarves…Of Course…She is a Resident of the North Pole.
Love the Snow White Fur.
A Crazy Reindeer Head Hat.
Or Luxurious Velvet and Fur with “Diamond” Closures.
Wool Felt Skirt. Sparkly Party Skirt. Pink Ballet Tutu.
I understand she Shops Pottery Barn and Cost Plus in the Wine Section for Wine Toppers.
Wine Toppers are an absolutely Perfect Fit.
She is Usually Accompanied by a Reindeer or Two or Three.
Guess the Reindeer have been having Babies at the Pole.
Do You Have an Elf?
Do You Need an Elf?
I Must Tell You, She is Filled with Magic.
And Makes Wonderful Christmas Memories….and after all, it is All About Making Memories.
Yours and Theirs. 🙂
