Our Elf on the Shelf, Kevin, arrived last Sunday.  He has been up to some Elf Antics all week and the kids are loving it! I have been following my Elf on the Shelf Calendar and it has been a HUGE help! No more wondering where I am going to put that darn Elf every night. I did all the hard work ahead of time and now I just have to remember to do it before heading to bed!

Let’s see what Kevin has been up to this week.

Day 1

Kevin arrived with “snow covered” donuts to surprise the kids Sunday morning! He also brought a letter from the big man himself.

Day 2

This one is one of my favorites so far. I just took a spare shoe, secured it on the banister, and plopped Kevin in. One negative about this was trying to keep Ben from taking Kevin out of the shoe!

Day 3

Since the boys have a ton of toys laying around every night, I gathered them all up and had Kevin read them “Santa is Coming to Philadelphia.”

Day 4

I wanted to do this one last year but just never got around to it. So simple and easy!

Day 5

Talk about easy! I just put Kevin in the tissue box and tucked him in. Poor little guy was tired after his first busy week in our house.

Day 6

Kevin was supposed to repel down the china cabinet. Instead, he got a little tied up!. I just grabbed some holiday ribbon and attached it to the top of the china cabinet. I made sure I kept the ribbon short enough so Ben couldn’t reach Kevin.
