elf on the shelf

This year we decided to jump on the bandwagon and get an elf on the shelf. At first I was very skeptical of it because I did not want Kane to behave just because Santa was watching. My sister-in-law got an elf the first year it was out and basically threatened the kids with it. I knew I did not want to do that, but still wanted to participate. This year, Kane holds and plays with the elf. We don't really play by the books. It is just a fun activity that we both enjoy. Here are a few pictures of where Kane has found Sheldon since December 1st.

We had a mini kick-off breakfast on December 1st. We were both terribly sick and this is all I had the energy for.

Our plates and cups ready for Christmas tree pancakes and milk.

Introducing Kane and Sheldon. Michael named Sheldon... Michael's favorite TV show is "the big bang theory" and Sheldon is a hilarious character on it.

Sheldon came with his very own name badge

and a letter to Kane.

"keeping my eyes on you!"
