A few weeks ago, I boxed up the blanket for Allison, put in a winter puzzle for Mariah, then added in some Christmas candies. Sealed it up, topped it with red and green glitter, and left it on the front porch for them to find in the morning.
Allison couldn't contain her excitement over the mystery package on the porch, and immediately tore into it!
Her Christmas spirit is back in full swing, and she is eagerly awaiting his return this year. It was a fun little idea that lifted their spirits on an otherwise boring, summer day.
Do you like the idea of Elf on the Shelf, or are you so over the novelty of it by now?
