Elf on the Shelf 2014: Week 1

I can hardly believe we have had our Elf on the Shelf Scout Elf, Jack, for 4 adventurous years! I didn't share too many of his escapades the past 2 years because elf shenanigans were everywhere you looked. 

The other day I realized that our elf years are numbered (my girls are almost 9 and 7.5 years old) and I needed to embrace and capture these wonderful childhood memories being made with the Lil Divas. So, this year I will share some our elf escapades but I'll compile it into one weekly post so it doesn't overwhelm anyone - including me. I don't remember to take photos each night but it will be nice to put all the ideas and photos in one easy place. 

Week One:

Jack always arrives promptly on Thanksgiving night. The Lil Divas eagerly await his arrival. This year was no different. They were up before the sun to see if he had made it back to us. He did!

This year, Jack arrived with a gift. 
A cute Christmas movie for us to enjoy together - A Golden Christmas.
(no pic sorry)

He likes to remind us Christmas is just around the corner.
As if we'd forget with 2 excited girls in the house.

Jack gifted the Lil Divas with their first Barbie Advent Calendar
to help us count down the days till Christmas.

Jack misses the snow while he's visiting us here in FL
so he got some friends together and cut some coffee filter snowflakes.

The following day we caught Jack, Frosty & Lalaloopsy 
in the act of having a snowball fight. 
Thankfully, no cotton balls were hurt 
in the play being had by these 3 silly amigos. :)

He hangs out in our Christmas tree. I don't mind too much, 
except I wish he wouldn't move our decorations.

The best surprise yet was finding our very own Elf on the Shelf Pets Reindeer under the tree! Santa sent him to the Lil Divas to fill him up with love, hope and belief in Christmas magic so that on Christmas Eve he may help guide his sleigh.
The Lil Divas named him Jingles. A fitting reindeer name for sure.

They were soooooooo excited! 

Do you have an elf on the shelf?
What elf adventures has your elf been on so far?

  1. Beautiful photos! I had never thought of the clever ways Elf was able to watch. A bit mischievous - but fun!


Thanks for taking the time to visit Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas! I hope you will stay awhile to explore all we have to offer!
