It's Christmas Eve! My boys are super excited and are so fidgety. They just want this day to be over with so that Christmas comes faster! Waiting is so difficult! We had a blast this month with our little elf friend Dasher. It seemed to go by a lot faster than I expected. I had so many ideas and didn't get to do a bunch of them, so we'll be saving those for next year.
Sadly today was our last day with Dasher. Tonight he makes his final report to Santa on the boys behavior. Which has been very good, they are so happy to be on the "Nice List". Santa will scoop up Dasher when he visits our house tonight and take him back to the North Pole. We won't be seeing Dasher again until next year. Goodbye my little friend! We loved you!
Here's our adventures this past week with Dasher.
Dasher was eating from the 4 food groups of elves: candy cane, candy corn, sugar and syrup. Yum!
I loved this one. We have a fish tank embedded in a cabinet and Dasher put on some swim goggles and wanted to go scuba diving to catch some fish.
I grabbed a printable Elf Kisses candy topping from the web so Dasher could bring the boys a present of Hershey kisses.
The boys were confused, embarrassed and laughing this morning to find that Dasher put their underwear as stockings. Then Dasher got a wedgie and was hanging from the fireplace. LOL!
Here's Dasher parachuting from the ceiling fan.
Donning a Batman mask and cape.
Hiding out inside Andrew's stocking.
Our last day. Christmas Eve. Dasher delivered a letter explaining his departure today. The boys got to give him a hug and kiss before putting him back where they found him.
Here's the goodbye letter.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect this year with the Elf On The Shelf. They boys really got into it and I loved finding new places for him to hide. Who knows if we'll be doing this again next year. All I know, is that it added lots of Christmas magic to our house each day. And that made it all worth it.
Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends!!
Hugs to all!
