Sparkles, our Elf on the Shelf...Day 333

Sunshine has been really, really wanting for an elf on the shelf for weeks. I told her that we couldn't just go out and get her an elf, the elf must be sent to our house by Santa. She has been faithful and hopeful and Saturday morning it paid off! An elf came to our house!!

Our elf was waiting for us at the breakfast table when we came downstairs...the girls were SHOCKED!

I was thankful our elf brought breakfast so I could take the morning off :o)

I mean, who doesn't like donuts decorated with candy and milk flavored with candy canes?

This is what a super, duper excited seven year old looks like. I wish I could freeze time!

These two are excited, but I don't really think they know why :o)

We read that our #1 task is to pick a name for our elf. I know I am probably biased, but she's pretty cute :o)

We chose the name "Sparkles."

Our elf has been a busy little lady! She has been spotted hanging from the chandelier and fishing for goldfish already! I am pretty sure I hear her flying around downstairs so there is no telling what she is getting into tonight!
