Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Did any of you go Black Friday shopping? I heard the crowds were not bad at all. I needed some serious down time after Thanksgiving, so I stayed home and shopped online:) It was relaxing, and was I was able to pick up some good deals.

It is that time of year when the Elf On The Shelf starts to show up in our homes. I have rounded up 25 creative Elf On The Shelf ideas that are sure to make for some magical memories.

Our Elf On The Shelf, Sparkle, made her second debut Thanksgiving morning:) We had so much fun with her last year, and I could not be happier about adding this holiday tradition.

Emily was very surprised when she opened up the fridge on Thanksgiving morning. Sparkle scored points with this one!!

 

Sparkle attempted to bush her teeth and made a bit of a mess

 

 

Sparkle loves Rainbow Loom

 

 

So that is what Sparkle has been up to since she arrived. We are excited to see what she will do next…
