The Elf Has Arrived

We arrived home from our lovely Thanksgiving holiday late last night, and awoke this morning to find that Christmas is upon us…the elf has arrived!

Little Man was surprised and excited to see him perched on the mantle and, after reading his story in the Elf on the Shelf, named him Pip. I love his choice! I’ve been looking forward to starting this fun holiday tradition for a while and I am so excited to share his joy each morning when he finds Pip. I have a lot of fun ideas for theĀ mischievousĀ little elf!

I’ll post a weekly roundup of our elf adventures weekly, with pictures of course. :)

Back soon with pictures and recaps of our recent trips to Colorado and Tennessee. So much going on, tonight we welcome Uncle home for a much-anticipated post-deployment visit! And a certain Little Man’s birthday is in two weeks, not to mention the holidays. It’s such a wonderful time of year!


What an exciting time of year. I hope you guys have a blast with it!

We love the elf! Our elf, Penny, has yet to show up, but will be making an appearance soon! I’m interested to see some of your fun ideas for your elf!

What a cute post! It reminds you that this time of year can be so full of magic :)
