Elf on the Shelf Returns

>> Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Chippy, our Elf on the Shelf, officially made his return on Sunday.  He was supposed to show up on Black Friday but was detained a couple of times.....

On Friday, he was trampled in the Black Friday stampede.  On Saturday, he was detained by Customs.  Apparently Customs thinks that powdered snowflakes can double as cocaine. Poor Chippy had to endure a very unpleasant cavity search before continuing his journey to the girls.

Pretty creative excuses from a mom who just couldn't get her shit together to get everything going!

So, finally, Chippy and I came to an agreement and on Sunday, he made his grand appearance.


Chippy explained his delay by telling the girls that he had to make a stop to see Daddy and that Daddy has some special Christmas books that he wanted Chippy to deliver.

 


Nudgie got the book "Llama Llama Holiday Drama".  My Marine would read "Llama Llama Red Pajama" to her at bedtime, so this was a natural choice.
Nani got "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" - one of my favorite books!
Both girls got Santa stationery to write their letters to Santa

 
Chippy also brought ingredients for his special "Welcome Back" breakfast.  I Chippy made Eggnog French Toast - dyed red and green - and topped with whipped cream and red and green sprinkles.  They were served on Santa plates.  (The same plates I picked up at Goodwill last year for .25!!)



The girls don't know this (and why would they...because that would just ruin the magic!), but I sent My Marine a second Chippy so that he can take pictures with him to send back to the girls.  I just hope he makes it there in time for some good pictures!

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?  If so, what fun things do you have planned for your Elf?
