Elf on the Shelf for Busy Moms

I don’t know about you, but I love my children’s excitement by during the Christmas season. Even over the silly elf! It’s so fun to see them jump out of bed each morning seeing who can find him first and what mischief was created. I’ll confess, I get anxiety each year that I’m going to forget to move him {has happened a few times} or fail at fun & exciting adventures… But I’m here to say that if this busy mom can do it, so can you!!!

All I can say is thank goodness for pinterest! I’ve created a board to get ideas… Check it out: http://www.pinterest.com/fitkarma/elf-on-shelf-ideas/

Our elfs name is Gumdrop and he is certainly more like a part of the family after 3 years with us.

I’ll share some of our adventures and how we try to keep it fun, clean and even with a Christian theme! It’s a daily reminder for us and especially 3 kiddos growing up in this “me” commercialized world to focus on the true meaning of Christmas… Jesus!
