Alfie, our Elf on the Shelf, has been busy this week!
While he was “scheduled” to appear in the dollhouse, he opted for the silo in the barn. Really any Little People toys make great Elf on the Shelf hiding places!
He left a note for Connor and Amelia on the chalkboard. He kept it simple since we only have one emergent reader. He also held on to that chalk for dear life!
He also “found” kids stockings! While I do refer back to my planning calendar, I also try and look at what is happening in our house at the moment and run with it. This weekend we unpacked the decorations that don’t go on the tree since we are putting off getting our tree until later and Connor was getting anxious to decorate. I had the stockings tucked away so I could gauge my shopping (stop buying stocking stuffers when the stockings get filled) and their weren’t in the box.
He also built a tower out of Legos ahead of schedule after the kids left them out one evening. Connor also took it upon himself to write a note to Santa and ask Alfie to pass it along. He asked Santa for more TMNT and flowers for Mama!
Next Alfie landed on an actual shelf! He was perched over a picture of the place that Daddy first kissed Mama and then asked me to marry him (a bit later on). He returned a note from Santa in which he asked Connor and Amelia to be kind to one another.
What was your Elf on the Shelf up to last week?
