We finally did it. We busted out that Elf on the Shelf. I had originally planned to get it out on the first of the month but the more I thought about it the more I thought Addie wouldn't really get it. Plus, I didn't want to do all that work if she still isn't at the age to comprehend. So I waited until closer to Christmas so I didn't have to move him as much. Saturday morning was the day!
I spent Friday evening getting everything laid out and prepared so I would just have to quickly throw the breakfast down and make the hot cocoa.
Addie and Rick went out to his parents lake house Friday night so when she got home she saw Santa had a package delivered.
She loved her donuts.
The hot cocoa with marshmallows was also a huge hit.
We had about a 5 minute conversation after reading the book as to what the elf's name should be. She continued to say, "I don't know" or "nuffin" when we asked what his name should be. I was tempted to name him nuffin but it seems he may have received a name over the past several days. She's started referring to him as Frosty. We'll see if that sticks.
