Happy Thanksgiving and a little intro to our Elf on the Shelf

I hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I decided to try out Elf on the Shelf this year so “she” should be visiting us tonight! Yes, I did say SHE 😉 I have been thinking about starting this tradition for a while and there have been a lot of people posting great ideas on Pinterest. But when I saw this VERY cute and clever idea for a little girlie elf over at Bubbly Nature Creations, I was completely hooked! I decided to just hunt around the house first to see what I could find. I was so excited when I found an elf doll hidden in our huge mound o’ toy chaos. She is perfect!

I figured the blue hair could be considered Frosty and she has cute little pointed ears. I love it!

Then I pulled together a little outfit. I grabbed some furry lined Christmas stuff from an old My Little Pony:

I had a few dress options to choose from as well:

We were even able to check out the Elf on the Shelf book at the library too so this ended up not costing me a thing, which was so nice!

I just need to add a few more finishing touches to her and she should be all set! Stay tuned for the big reveal and I’ll show you how we introduced her to the girls and what sort of mischievous things she has been up to! Wish me luck!!
