Bell the Elf arrived back at our house Thanksgiving Night at around 2am. That’s probably not the best time for your elf’s arrival during the holidays. But let’s be honest, sometimes we have a bit too much Turkey and fall asleep watching British Baking Show. Luckily, our 2 year old woke up wet and saved the day. Since Bell’s arrival was chaotic, I decided that I’d create an “Elf Calendar” for this year. There’s no way I want to search for candy canes in the middle of the night again. Also, because I’m super nice…I’m sharing my calendar so that you don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night and construct a marshmallow snowman. Didn’t this Elf thing seem brilliant before you actually had kids? I’m confident that this schedule will put the fun back in my elf…or at least keep her from being stuck at the North Pole for 2 weeks due to a freak elf accident.
Scroll to the bottom and you’ll find the welcome & goodbye letters too. Also, if you need an Elf…here you go.
