Elf on our Shelf!
I love Christmas traditions! Ever since I saw the elf on a shelf I just knew I wanted to use that with Nolan. The dolls though are kind of expensive and since he doesn't yet understand I haven't been able to bring myself to spend the money. Instead, I decided to make my own elf last night. The picture is not the best but he's cute (well, at least less creepy than the manufactured one!).
When Nolan saw him sitting on our shelf this morning he said "Aww baby". Yep, I made him a baby doll. I thinking starting Dec. 1st we'll hide him somewhere very visible each day and have Nolan find him. Should be cute. Next year I'll start the fun ideas for elf mischief I've seen all over Pinterest!
