Every year Charlie comes to our house and does funny things to make the boys laugh. I have to say that I love being creative and coming up with the ideas of what Charlie is going to do!
This year, Charlie came on December 1 and just like every year, he brought out our Christmas books and new Christmas PJs for the boys as well as their advent calendars. Each year we have to have a special breakfast as he also brings out our Christmas plates and mugs. The boys remembered these little details from last year and since we moved they were very excited to see that this tradition was continued! :)
The thing I love about our Elf is that he reports back to Santa every night about how the boys have behaved. The boys remind each other to be kind to others and to listen to Mom and Dad as Charlie is watching. They also love telling their friends about what our Elf did and hearing what other's elves did. This year here's what Charlie was up to:
He wrote on our front hallway mirror (with a dry erase marker lol) "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" as we had decorated for Christmas the night before.
He brought out our waffle maker (which we hadn't used in a LONG time!) and brought a new box of waffle mix...but spilled some lol. He also brought fresh strawberries and whip cream and the boys loved having a special breakfast!
He had a good workout on our treadmill and the boys thought this was hilarious!
He put one of each pairs of socks all over the Christmas tree. The boys had to wear mis match socks to school and they LOVED having to tell their friends and class about why they had mismatch socks on!
He also had a balloon sword to protect our Christmas tree (at least that's what the boy's theory was!).
This week I am going to use these printables and have the boys go around the house and find them all. Love that there's jokes and interactive cards that I can use! I have created these into a downloadable file so just click on the photo below and download and print. Or right click on the photo and save it as an image.
