Our Elf Welcome Breakfast !

So, Yes….

You’ve probably figured out, we are a family that “does” elf on the shelf. We started with one elf “Rupert” but, when Frankie got a little sister… so did he! So we welcomed “Ruby” to the family as well!

Honestly I love this tradition!

Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand why some parents hate it! I’ve had many nights where, I’ve shot up out of bed…. almost out cold because I forgot to move the damn elves!!!!

For the most part, it’s full of fun! The kids love waking up to see what their little friends are up to! While the number of elves may have changed, the one thing that hasn’t is our celebration for their arrival!

No matter when December starts, our elves always arrive the Sunday after. It’s the only day we’re usually all together, and traditionally eat breakfast together!

So, The story goes…..

The elves are the ones who bring us delicious treats to kick off all the fun we’ll have together in the coming weeks! As far as the kids know at least…..

Truth be told, I’ve been scouring the dollar store for decor and reached out to Michelle at Cupcakes and Studmuffins to create some super fun treats and she did not let me down!

She dreamed up these amazing cookies, mini donuts and my personal favourite pop tarts!! They taste as good as they look, and are seriously even more adorable in person!

Of course with elves, come many sweet treats! So there was plenty of chocolates and candy!

I found these adorable Santa and reindeer paper cups by chance, and had to grab them too! Everything was served on the holiday serve ware from Kitchen Stuff Plus holiday collection !

All in all, It was a great morning….. despite the sugar high from the kids that followed! It’s our way of making the holiday season even more fun and it makes the wait until the big night a little more bearable!

Because, lets be honest!

The big guy in red, will be here before we know it!
