With the approach of Fall, I start to get excited about the upcoming holiday season. I have been meaning for the last 9-ish months to get all of these pictures loaded onto my blog, per a request or two. So here it is!
Along with eleventy billion other families in the world, we had an addition to our family a couple of years ago; our Elf on a Shelf. The kids named him Hermie Elfis.
|He's so cheeky.|
Hermie shows up while we are on our annual beach and NC Thanksgiving vacation. He usually is hanging from the kids' chalkboard with a "Welcome Home" message. Then the fun begins...
The first couple of years, he mainly just hid in different places in the house; dining room chandelier, bookshelf, peeking from behind the sofa... But last year, he stepped it up a bit.
|Edible markers...you can find them at craft stores|
|That's a fifty dollar fine, pal.|
|Leonardo needs to work on perfecting his "poker face".|
|Kumbaya, my Lord....kumbaya...|
|Guess he actually did get a hippopatamus for Christmas.|
|Guess he's over 40, too.|
|Booyah, Puffin. In yo face. (Or on your head...)|
|Flight ELF to control tower...over...|
|Bet he consulted a tutorial online. Just a guess.|
|His brother, Buddy, prefers straight syrup.|
|The Bounty slopes ain't for sissies.|
|Don't all engineers wear this to work?|
|Lovely penmanship for an elf.|
|Tefchnically, that's no noble steed. Nice ass, Hermie.|
