Elf on the Shelf: Alfie strikes again!

Alfie, our Elf on the Shelf has been a pretty busy little guy this past week!

Last weekend he brought some magic seeds back from the North Pole just like he did last year. Last year the magic seeds grew into candy canes, but this year, the grew into these marshmallow treats.  Connor recognized that they were the same kind of treat that Santa had given the kids when they went to visit him at a local store.  A happy accident on my part!

Alfie and his bubble bath were found in the Amelia’s room where the cats hardly ever go so the marshmallows were safe! (They also made for a tasty breakfast for the kids the next morning!)

Alfie has a lot more in store for Connor and Amelia for the last few days leading up to Christmas before he returns home to the North Pole with Santa.  Next year I totally need a calendar to plan things out in advance!!!
