We started the fun “Elf on the Shelf” tradition last year. If you are not familiar with it……there is a book called “The Elf on the Shelf” and it comes with a little toy elf. You name the elf (ours is Tebow) and the elf is a mischievous little guy who does tricks around the house. He keeps an eye on you during the Christmas season and reports back to Santa on how you’ve been behaving. You can talk to him but he can’t talk back and he’s always watching. I saw this great idea for a welcome breakfast on Pinterest (a new, highly-addicting website) and decided that it would be a great idea.
I set the table up the night before so the kids could wake up to it:
They each had a “snowy” donut at their place and a personalized letter along with a bag with a couple goods in it.
The kids enjoyed hot cocoa and snowman pancakes too.
The kids really enjoyed it and I hope it becomes part of our Christmas tradition.
