Elf Mischief

I am a bit behind with the Elf on the Shelf phenomenon, but he has finally arrived at the Bevier household. Thank goodness for the creative people on the world wide web, and particularly for Pinterest, as I don't have to put a lot of thought into the Elf shenanigans because there are a million great ideas out there! As fun as this is the kids are into it a little too much as they have been waking up at 5:45 every morning to see what the Elf is up to and to check the advent calender! I have to set my alarm on my phone at night to remind me to keep up with the Elf and calender because that would be a very sad morning if mommy forgot! Growing up I loved my mom's angel advent calender and couldn't wait to see what surprise awaited each day...everything from a piece of candy to a note that promised a toy or activity! I have maintained that tradition in this home, but because Aiden is so nosy I have to put the following days candy or note in the night before or else Aiden peeks and reads them all :( He totally gets that from me! So here's what our Elf has been up to this far...
