Our First Christmas with Bubbles the Elf

Good 'ol Elf on the shelf, This was our first year with our Elf Bubbles and it went great. Kayden loved it & kind of understood it {minus the don't touch the elf thing} & there was only one time his puzzled little face questioned the Elfs magic...he made Elf doughnuts.

Before Kayden was even born I knew I wanted to have Elf on the Shelf in our house. I know I know some don't like it and think it is "creepy" but contrary to popular believe our elf was polite {for the most part and the creepy factor only happened once when he was taped on our kitchen wall. {I had to take him down for that one} Believe me, there are so many "naughty" things our elf Bubbles could have done but lets face it our kids are watching what that elf is doing and the elf sets the example and once the elf is gone won't our kids remember what the elf did? {I know mine will eve at two}

I had Bubbles calendar all filled out for him what he would do each night while Kayden slept. I had one idea and I like to call it "the tee peeing of the Christmas tree" Kayden would have thought 
it was hilarious, so once I got to the day on the elf calendar I realized it was a bad idea. I pictured it perfectly... Kayden sneaking into the bathroom grabbing a roll of toilet paper and tee peeing the fake plant in our living room. So that idea was totally scratched and I said no to the elf doing naughty things. So here it is our Bubbles the elf visit...

{And then it was time to say goodbye}

I hope you enjoyed our elf, I know we did!
