We have a few trees that go up in our house (ahem 4) but I wanted him to have one of this own. This year we bought him a little felt tree that can go on his door. We are trying teach. him to stay in his room in the morning till the light turns green so I plan on hanging this felt tree on the inside of his door so he can decorate it himself and have something to play with in the morning.
Oh man we are doing it. If you guys plan on doing elf on the shelf this year it is probably time to start ordering it. I am hoping he will like this but I am also not going to go big with the elf. The elf simply will sit on the shelf and move every night. I won't be making any extreme elf setting this year. No need to complicate it!
This is just a reminder that if you are ordering stocking for your family order a few extra. I ordered 5 a few years ago in preparation for another baby and possibly a 3rd baby. Jay has shot me down on the third baby but who says the dog can't having a stocking. A girlfriend recommend this because what if your stockings collection is discontinued and therefore everyone's won't be matching. I have a place locally I will be taking Monroe's to get embroidered.
I finally talked Jay into doing family Pj's this year. He agreed to wear a PJ top but not any bottoms or onesies. I think we decided on some to order for the whole family. Jay is actually off this year for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! What a blessing it will be to have him home with us and do all the Christmas Eve and Christmas morning traditions.
