Starting last year, I started the Elf on the Shelf tradition for my family. And although some folks might find them a tad creepy or annoying little things who go and tattle-tell to Santa....here in our house they are an enhancement to the season and keep the excitement of Christmas going each day.
When I first brought up the idea of Santa sending an Elf to visit with us, Nathan and Brooke started fighting right away as to whether it should be a boy or a girl elf. Knowing that someone would be disappointed, Santa decided to send us twin brother and sister elves....Holly and Jolly! :)
Holly and Jolly take turns visiting us starting the weekend after Thanksgiving. They kick the season off in style by bringing a bit of the North Pole with them to sunny Florida with their "North Pole Breakfast". (You can see my post and photos from last year....HERE)
Knowing that lots of moms out there are looking for ideas to do with their elves, I thought I'd share with all of you Holly & Jolly's 2011 Adventures.
I hope you and your family are enjoying the Christmas holiday!!
