Last Week with Bob (Our Elf on the Shelf)
Christmas is just a couple days away, which means our time with Bob, our Elf on the Shelf, is drawing to a close. Here are some of the antics Bob has been up to this past week!
1st Presents Under the Tree
Bob brought the boys their first presents (matching Christmas P.J’s) and left them under the tree for them to open.
The Polar Express
Bob brought the boys The Polar Express DVD and their very own train tickets. You can download and print off your own Polar Express tickets here!
Trapped in a Present Decoration
Brushing his Teeth with M’s Toothbrush
Building a Marble Run
Roasting Marshmallows Over an iPad Fire
I got this idea from my sister. I even toasted (*ahem* burnt…) the marshmallows a bit for an authentic touch 😉
Relaying a Message from the Grinch!
The note reads: “You’ve been GRINCHED!
The Grinch put the presents and star in his sack!
Perform at least 3 acts of kindness to get them back!”
Tomorrow we will watch the movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and drink some green Grinch smoothies (yogurt, mangos, spinach and apple juice). Bob will be watching to see if the boys (mainly M) performs at least 3 acts of kindness so he can get the Grinch to return their presents and the star by Christmas Eve morning! Here’s hoping the boys will pull through!
My last Elf on the Shelf post for 2012 will be Bob’s good-bye letter to the boys.
Merry Christmas Everyone! Wishing all of you good health, love, and happiness for 2013!
