Elf on the Shelf Breakfast

This morning, our Elf on the Shelf - Frisbee - returned from the North Pole!  Apparently, Frisbee had seen a great idea for an Elf on the Shelf Breakfast on Pinterest this year, so he set up a big surprise breakfast for the kids this morning.

Frisbee brought special holiday pajamas in a Santa box, and he left them outside the kids' bedroom doors this morning.  Katie Anne could not believe her eyes when she saw the box!  Being the sweet big sister that she is, she wouldn't open the box without SJ.  They were so excited - and so cute in their new pajamas!
Once they were all dressed and ready for the holiday kick-off breakfast, we went into the kitchen to see what surprises were there for us!  

I hope I never forget the look of total wonder on their precious faces.

Frisbee left notes at each of the kids' place setting, reminding them to be good and mentioning some of the special items they want this year!

We had cinnamon rolls, powdered donuts, bananas, and chocolate milk for our special breakfast!

We read the Elf on the Shelf book together after we'd eaten our breakfast.
It was a special way to kick off the holiday season for the kids, and I hope this is a tradition that we keep going in the future!
