It's that time of the year again... time for our Elf on the Shelf, Buddy (full name: Buddy Charles Jingle Elf the Third) to re-appear! He has only been back for just over a week and has already been getting into all kinds of mischief! Such a rascal, this little guy! ; )
On his first night back he arrived in grand fashion, toilet papering our entire family room and making sure we knew that he was back for the season.
The next night, we found him making 'elf' angels in the kitchen!
Parachuting in from the North Pole...
He even took it upon himself to fix breakfast for Little Miss one morning. Spaghetti complete with syrup, chocolate sauce, and M&M's. Even some leftovers for lunch. Ha.
I think he may have gotten a little tired the next night, because we found him resting quietly on my vintage ornament wreath above the fireplace the next day. All that cooking must have tuckered him out!
He also enjoyed a friendly game of poker with some of his elf buddies...
And hid himself amongst the branches of our Christmas tree!
Sometimes you just have to take a day off and go fishin'.
Of course, Buddy needed his very 'own' Christmas tree too and got busy decorating it the other night.
And finally, what is probably one of my very favorite 'Buddy' moments... this morning we found him returning from the North Pole in his very own hot air balloon!
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? I'd love to hear about all of the creative ideas you have! If you want to check out all of Buddy's other adventures, you can find them here, here, here and here. Or, you can check out his hashtag over on Instagram (Yeah, that's right, I made him his very own hashtag, haha) at #buddycharlesjingleelfthethird.
Happy Wednesday friends.
