This weekend Chippy and Snowflake made their grand return! Gavin had been asking when Chippy would be back since some of his friends had already seen their Elf on the Shelf over Thanksgiving weekend. Chippy and Snowflake like to bring breakfast on their first day back and that is always more fun on the weekend! On the morning of their return, breakfast magically appears in the dining room.
I almost didn’t share this. It really isn’t “Pinterest Worthy” with elaborate food or decorations. If you haven’t already noticed, I like to keep things simple. This simple little breakfast has always been special to the kids. Chippy and Snowflake always bring powdered donuts which is something I don’t usually buy. That makes it an extra special treat for them!
I had already covered the table with a table cover from the Dollar Tree earlier in the week for a craft event I had hosted. The elves decided to leave that on for a little festive feel. They also used holiday plates and napkins that we already had.
Raspberries are one fruit that both kids agree on. It is definitely one of their favorites. They also created a fun yogurt cup with diced strawberries. mini chocolate chips and a candy cane. The kids devoured their breakfast while I made hot chocolate for them. Graylie kept looking up and telling them thank you for her breakfast. She can be super sweet when she wants to! 😉
I think Chippy and Snowflake did a pretty good job! Graylie keeps asking if we can set the table up again so I know she really enjoyed it. They love being able to look for their crazy elves every morning to see if they have gotten into anything in the night. What about you? Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?
