I hope that everyone had an amazing Christmas day! We truly enjoyed staying home this year instead of making the 12 hour trip to NC with 2 kids and a dog. That trip is always a rough one, so add in the stress of the holiday madness and it ends up being no fun for us at all. (We are excited for March though, when we plan to go visit family without the Christmas chaos!)

Now that Christmas is over, (and I mean over around here.. no more tree, no more garland, no more oversized hanging ornaments - NADA) I thought I would share our Elf on the Shelf moments from this year! We LOVE Bear, our little elf. 

 And FYI

*It's not creepy to us. 
*It's not too much work for us. 
*It's not us taking away from Santa or Jesus' birth or anything else. 

We love it as much as our kids do and we look forward to doing it again next year. ♥


























See ya next year Bear!
