Olivia has already been pretty responsive to the idea of being good because "Santa is watching," so I thought this may be a good year to joint the Elf on Shelf craze!
Our Elf created a North Pole Breakfast for her to document his arrival!
She was a little timid when she saw the stuff on the kitchen table, but quickly got pretty excited about it.
Daddy read the note from the Elf and helped her open her present -- the way to Olivia's heart is through nightgowns and matching outfits with her dolls. Clearly the Elf knows her well! ;)
By the point she realized there was breakfast and quickly dug in while Daddy read the story.
She listened carefully to the rules (no touching) and thought it was funny that he would come back every morning and she would have to find him.
She named him Phillip (we aren't sure if that is a reference to one of our friends or Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty....)
And, after breakfast, she and Daddy curled up on the couch for some Daniel Tiger.
